Nice spell of possession by the U.S. in midfield. Bradley sweeps a raking ball down the right wing for Fabian Johnson to chase. He gets to it and whips a low cross in but Germany clear. Amusing moment as Jones collides with the ref on the edge of the box. Amazingly the ref doesn't book himself.
Asamoah Gyan is at the heart of all Ghana's play, this time darting to the near post to try and head a corner in, but he's blocked out.
Plenty to blame for Schalke's woe.
Don't honestly think so. They seem okay.
Now now, Nick. Ref was fine.
The referee in the Portugal - Ghana game gets in the way now! He inadvertently blocks a attack and Portugal counter...
What a comedy of errors this is - just after Ghana's attack hits the referee and Portugal counter, John Boye slips and slices a cross into the top corner of his own net!
Another offside call against Thomas Muller. He'd floated out to the right, miles away from Beasley who had no apparent clue he was even there. Long ball is pelted his way but Muller is a fraction behind the last defender.
Ty ang, there could be any number - neither side is fond of defending here.
That was the 4th own goal of the tournament and the 1st in Ghana's World Cup history.
Half-chance for the USA! Jones takes a rare sprint right up the middle. Long ball over the top picks him out between the two center-backs but he can't control it with his first touch and it skids through to a grateful Manuel Neuer.
The early nerves have definitely gone, Rugger. But game is far from comfortable for either team.
World Cup oddity - there have been 5 Own Goals in matches Portugal has played in (either for or against). Only Italy has as many in WC history.
Rúben Amorim strikes at goal for Portugal, but he should be doing better as he can only hit it wide - the ball hits the side netting as a fair few fans cheer for a ghost goal. Nothing doing there.
I don't think so. I mean it could be part of his mindset but I think he wants this for the USA more than so he can stick it to Germany.
