One early goal and one late goal, gave the United States a surprise victory in another exciting World Cup game.

Clint Dempsey struck early, so early in fact that it was the fifth fastest goal in World Cup history.

However after that Ghana were largely in charge of the game and for extended parts of it the USA did well to hold on.

Despite that, the African side were wasteful in front of goal and never posed a huge threat to the opposition goal in the first half.

After the break that changed and eventually they deservedly equalised through Andre Ayew.

However the game had one more twist as substitute John Brooks headed home a late and dramatic winner for the USA.

But how did the players rate?
