Portugal finished off a disappointing World Cup effort on a high note, defeating Ghana 2-1 in their final Group G match.
Both sides were eliminated with the result. Portugal finished level with the United States on four points, but the Americans' superior goal differential (even) compared to Portugal (minus-three) saw the former through.
Ghana's John Boye accidentally put Portugal ahead, hitting in an own goal in the 31st minute while botching a clearance.
Asamoah Gyan equalised for Ghana with a headed strike to get things level in the 57th minute.
Cristiano Ronaldo gave Portugal a late lead when he pounced on some poor Ghanaian goalkeeping.
Ronaldo nearly stuck early, hitting the crossbar with an ambitious shot from the right side.

Ronaldo, again, was denied, but this time from close range.
