USA vs. Ghana: Goals, Highlights for World Cup Group G Game

Lee WalkerUK Managing EditorJune 16, 2014

The United States faced Ghana in Natal for the second match in Group G at the 2014 World Cup.

Jurgen Klinsmann's side had a sensational start, as Clint Dempsey scored after just 31 seconds.


The Seattle Sounders forward was delighted with his goal.


However, the West Africans should have been on level terms just before the interval, but Jordan Ayew made a mess of his shot.


Ghana did get on level terms inside the final 10 minutes, and it was a sweet move that ended in Andre Ayew rifling home.


Although, the Africans went to sleep at a corner, and John Brooks headed home with four minutes left.


That proved to be the winner, and the U.S., who were eliminated by the Black Stars in both the 2006 and 2010 tournaments, gained a measure of revenge.
