12:56am

All over - great result for the US.

12:52am

Muntari booked

12:49am

12:48am

Amazing - corner whipped in from the right and big John Brooks gets up to head it home. Johnson deserves credit in winning the corner.

12:47am

GOAL USA

12:44am

Ayew finishes superbly after a great backheel from Gyan. Great goal - and exactly what Ghana deserve.

12:43am

GOAL Ghana

12:40am

Johnson did well on the right, eventually got the ball to Dempsey whose shot is held by Kwarasey

12:35am

USA just reversing a second bus in front of goal now.

12:26am

Asamoah hits a shot from distance - it moves around in the air  but the Everton keeper, who has been excellent tonight, catches it clean.

12:25am

Gyan's shot blocked right in front of goal by Cameron - they are pounding on the door at the moment.

12:23am

Atsu drfits a shot over the bar. Howard had it covered.

12:19am

Howard tips a header from Gyan wide - great effort.

12:18am

12:17am

Ayew whips a great gross in for Gyan - his header goes over the bar. Should have scored.

12:16am

Sulley Muntari blasts an effort towards goal from 25 yards - it sails just wide. Getting closer.

12:14am

Atsu has a shot from distance - nowhere near the goal. Sums up Ghana in an attacking sense so far.

12:13am

Bit more about Ghana in the second half. Looks like they mean business.

12:07am

Back up and running.

11:51pm

11:50pm

Mis-hit from Ayew after Atsu had got in loads of space down the right and found him with a pass in the penalty box.

11:42pm

Johansson gets a sight of goal for the US but scuffs his volley.

11:39pm

Ghana have had more possession, corners, shots at goal - but haven't really looked like scoring.

11:33pm

Dempsey has just got a smack in the face. Wow, that hurt...

11:32pm

Howard beats away a shot from Gyan - powerful effort.

11:30pm

Rabiu booked for Ghana

11:29pm

Atsu curls a shot just wide - Ghana teasing and probing on the edge of the area. Looked like there was a foul by Beckermann in there too.

11:27pm

Besler shanks a clearance over his own crossbar.

11:26pm

Bradley plays in Bedoya but his shot from distance is disappointing. US just coming to terms with that bad injury for Altidore.

11:22pm

Altidore looks like he's blown his hamstring. That's very sad to see...

11:19pm

Altidore's shot blocked by a Ghana defender. Decent counter by the US - but the Sunderland striker should have done better.

11:17pm

Ghana starting to settle now and swamping the right side.

11:16pm

Howard had to be really quick off his line to stop Gyan getting in on goal. Great pass from Ayew.

11:06pm

Amazing stuff. according to this story Dempsey's strike is the fifth fastest in World Cup history.

11:02pm

Great bit of skill on the edge of the box to beat the Ghana defender, cool finish. What a start for the USA!

11:01pm

Clint Dempsey scores after 31 seconds!

11:00pm

11:00pm

10:58pm

10:58pm

Ghana have got some talent in that team - but I'm going for a narrow US win.

10:55pm

Last game of the night and I'm absolutely sure it will be better than the last one.
