The U.S. upset Ghana yesterday to win their first match of the World Cup, 2 to 1. Our first goal came just 30 seconds into the game . . . the fifth fastest goal in World Cup history. Clint Dempsey dribbled past a couple defenders and scored.
It went downhill from there. Jozy Altidore . . . one of our best players . . . left the game with a hamstring injury. Then Dempsey broke his nose after getting kicked in the face.
And Ghana tied it up with eight minutes left.
But the U.S. scored on a corner kick four minutes later. Ghana's the team that eliminated the U.S. in the last TWO World Cups.
