Revenge at Last: US Defeats Ghana 2-1
Posted June 17th, 2014 @ 9:09am by News Editors and Wire Services

(NEWSER) – After 90 brutal minutes of end-to-end action, the Americans emerged with a thrilling 2-1 win over Ghana. US fans were screaming for revenge today after the Black Stars eliminated the Americans from the last two World Cups. They got it. At a price. Clint Dempsey scored a shocking goal a half-minute in, but the US couldn't make it stand up. Andre Ayew tied the score in the 82nd minute after a brilliant back-heel pass from Asamoah Gyan, who had eliminated the US four years ago. And then, just four minutes later, 20-year-old John Brooks rose to head in Graham Zusi's corner kick from 8 yards—the first substitute to ever score for the United States in 30 World Cup games over 84 years.
