7192398502729 1539511 FT:  USA 2 1 Ghana86min: What a finale this match is having! John Brooks has been a liability in defence at times, but maybe he should be playing in attack as he jumps highest from a corner to nod into the ground and past Kwarasey.

82min: Just when I was starting to doubt Ghana’s ability to get back into this, they pop up with a classy equaliser! A through ball into the box is backheedled first time by Gyan into the path of Andre Ayew, who waits for Howard to go to ground before punting high into the net at the near post.

Clint Dempsey scores a wonderful goal just 30 seconds into the game to give USA a very early lead.
