What a match! Despite jumping out to an 1-0 early lead, the USA fought back a vicious Ghana attack before conceding the equalizer in the 82nd minute. 

However, half-time sub John Anthony Brooks delivered the game-winning goal on a header from a corner kick in the 82nd minute giving the United States a 2-1 victory and much needed 3 points. Not only was it Brooks' first goal for the United States, it was the first goal scored by a US substitute in a World Cup. Not bad for the 21-year old German-American. 

It wasn't all good news for the US as they lost striker Jozy Altidore and center back Matt Besler to injury. 

The United States faces Portugal in their next match in Group G, a matchup on Sunday in the Amazon at Manaus. 

Ghana will take on powerhouse Germany on Saturday, as they look to salvage a result.
