Live Score
You can find live score of the USA vs Ghana match in the following link:

United States has been more or less impressive in the tournament so far. They have remained undefeated in the first round. In the first match, they could secure a draw with mighty England. In the second match, they were unlucky to get a draw 2-2 with Slovenia. They should have won that match if the referee did not cancel a goal of them which looked to be a legitimate goal in TV replay. Then in the last match, they not only defeated Algeria by 1-0 but also secured the top spot in Group C ahead of England.  
On the other hand, Ghana was in Group D in the round robin stage and in the first match, they defeated Serbia by 1-0. In the second match, Ghana was unlucky to draw with Australia 1-1 and in the last match of group stage, they lost to Germany by 0-1. They could finish second in Group D.
USA has some good players who are in great form. All their 3 goalkeepers play in English Premier League and their number one goal keeper Tim Howard of Everton is in great form in World Cup. He is a source of inspiration for all the players. When a team has a good keeper then they feel mentally confident. Landon Donovan is an attacking midfielder. He plays for LA Galaxy and he came to Everton on loan in January. He impressed almost everyone in Everton and EPL. Donovan scored the all important goal in the 90+1 minute against Algeria. This goal took them to the knockout stage.
Ghana is unlucky because just before the start of World Cup Football 2010, they lost their best player Michael Essien of Chelsea. Still, most of the players in different European leagues and they have no shortage of talent. Group D was a different place because both Serbia and Australia are formidable teams. Few people could perhaps expect Ghana to advance to the second round instead of Australia and Serbia. The main problem of Ghana is that they could not produce that many goals. In fact, they could score just 2 goals in 3 matches in the group stage. So, this is something that they need to improve a lot.
USA vs Ghana will be an interesting and enjoyable match and our prediction is that USA will win it.
