Ghana arrived as the favorite in South Africa since they are the only African team to bid for the last 16, but Germany also had a large amount of fans on their side with their painted faces and singing.
Coach Loew is trying new guys in this game for instance Cacau is filling in for Miroslav Klose and Badstuber for Boateng, I wonder how the Boateng brothers will get along? Remember that after Prince committed that foul on Ballack Jerome he said he wouldnâ€™t talk to Prince again.
And the answer came quick since Cacau was among the first players to make the game interesting and Ghanaians didnâ€™t disappoint their fans – they gave a good fight and dangerous strategies as well, and after 41 minutes the first half of a goalless game concluded.
The second half started and once again Cacau and Lahm were Germanyâ€™s most dangerous players for the Ghanaians, and so it was after 21 minutes in the game the Germans scored their first goal, a 20 yard kick by Ozil perfectly clean and powerful, one of the best goals at this World Cup I have seen so far. It ended after 3 minutes added in the injury time, Germany won 1-0 over Ghana. Germany and Ghana advances to the next round and will play against England and USA on Saturday.
