    They were outrun .... those guys from Ghana remind me of Senegal a few world cups ago, they were pretty dam fast too... All in all, a very entertaining game, fast paced. I was very amused!

    Looking forward to tomorrow's games... those will be just as awesome!

    They should've pushed through after they made 1-1, instead they leaned back on the defense, clearly their weakest point this game. Give A.Gyan some space and for sure he'll finish it, which is exactly what happened.

    Ghana has a young team and they were in the Final of African team vs egypt . they know each other since they were in the ghana team under 18 and 21 years old.

    Ghana was the better team for sure. Even if they didn't impress that much, I think that they were the better team and wish them good luck in the tournament as the only african team. I think with some luck they might go all the way to semifinal because I think they have a chance against Uruguay.

    Regards

    I thought it was a pretty good game. I am extremely dissapointed in Donovan. He was not a part of the game at all and i think he was pretty lazy today.

    I disagree, it was very well played by Ghana, the leftback kept him very well under control. Donovan ran a lot but Ghana was just very well organized to keep him out of the game. And if you really depend that much on 1 player to create opportunities you will not get very far.
    Ghana was just the better team, although it was not such a great game to watch, it was ok.
    Next round Ghana will be out against Uruguay though.

    How could USA lose? or wait! How could USA lose again after 4 years, to the same team they lost 4 years earlier with same goals margin? You should be happy they ended up in top 16

    Yeah i know you cant rely on one player but he is supposed to be our big star and help lift the team up. I mean towards the end of the game everyone is pushing up to get a goal and he was just standing there.

    But anyways Ghana did play a really good game and deserved to win. They didnt have as much chances as us but they put them away and we didnt.

    US should not have been playing football.They call football as soccer and call their junk rugby rip off as football which when I watches I feel like puking.
    I think they should have never qualified for football World cup at the first place.
    A bunch of over rated cowards.

    That Vuvuzula sound is the thing which makes watching matches much more exciting.
    It rocks and that distinguish watching world cup over other sports.
