The United States played their hearts out again but this time the last minute winner went against them. It didn’t look good when Ghana went 1-0 up after just five minutes and it was an uphill battle after that.
There were lots of chances from both sides, but the States finally got the equaliser in the second half through a Landon Donovan penalty after Dempsey was scythed down as he closed in on the Ghana goal.
It remained level until the end, but there was heartbreak to come in extra time for the Americans despite their pressure on Ghana’s goalkeeper, and Asamoah Gyan scored the winner straight after the restart.
At least the USA can go home with pride after showing the world (and the Americans!) that they are now a force to be reckoned with in international ‘soccer’.
