USA Falls to Ghana in World Cup

For those of you who saw my post on ESPN 360 flaw, most of you were able to watch the game on-line. However, if you were not able to watch it, here is the rundown

Haminu Draman opened the scoring for the Black Stars following a blunder by Claudio Reyna in the 22nd minute, before Clint Dempsey leveled the scores for in the 43rd.

The striker deprived Manchester City’s former Sunderland and Rangers midfielder off the ball and gently chipped it past ex-Tottenham goalkeeper Kasey Keller from 10 yards out on the left.

Dempsey then pulled one back for Ghana after Beasley had intercepted a pass in the attacking third. He chipped the ball over to the surging Dempsey, who hammered it home from 12 yards out.

A controversial penalty from Stephen Appiah just before the break proved decisive, as the USA failed to find a way back into the match.

After many injuries late in the game, Ghana was able to find the win. Unfortunately for the US, they had many chances to score in the final 10 minutes of the game and failed miserably
