Ghana 2-2 Germany

Germany had Miroslav Klose to thank for a point against a battling Ghana on Saturday.

The striker scored his 15th World Cup goal to move level with Ronaldo as the all-time World Cup top scorer and save German blushes.

Germany took the lead through Mario Goetze but Andre Ayew and Asomoah Gyan put Ghana ahead before Klose equalised in a frantic second half.Germany took the lead 11 minutes into the second half when Thomas Muller crossed for Goetze, who had drifted between two Ghanian defenders, to head home from close range.

It was the midfielder’s third goal in as many games for Germany and his fourth in five games for his country.

Their lead lasted less than three minutes, however, as Ghana hit back immediately through a looping Ayew header, after cross from his brother Jordan Ayew.

And Ghana went ahead in the 63rd minute when Gyan raced clear of the German defence after a brilliant through ball from Sulley Muntari and finished into the top left hand corner to make it 2-1.

After a period of Ghanian dominance, Miroslav Klose – on as a substitute for Goetze – put Germany back on level terms with his first touch, and in doing so moved level with Ronaldo as the all-time top scorer at World Cups with 15 goals.

The result leaves Germany top of group G with four points and Ghana still on just the one point.
