Serbia played well and were out done by two stupid mistakes by two of their defenders. Ghana played a great game all over. They defended well, attacked and passed with creativity and Kingson celebrates his 32 birthday with a tremendous save, a clean sheet and three points.
Ghana become the first African nation to win at this world cup.
PEEEEP PEEEEP PEEP
92:00 – Gyan almost gets a second as he shoots with the inside of his foot and it hots the inside of the post and bounces across the face of goal. Ghana relentless right now
91:00 – Addy on for KBP. Time wasting tactic by Ghana.
89:00 – Great move by Stephen Appiah as he sends Tagoe a lovely ball and he chest it down and sends a shot inches wide. Turns out he handled it and gets a yellow for his troubles.
88:00 – Serbia keep attacking but are resorting to route 1 football.
85:00 – That was bad by the Stuttgart defender. There was no need to handle that ball and Serbia were playing very well a man down. That not only gave up goal but took all the momentum out of Serbia’s play…or did it?
83:00 – PENALTY! Kusmanovic handles it. That was as stupid as Ghezzal in the earlier game. Gyan is taking the penalty!….GOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLL GYAN. Classic penalty as the keeper goes the wrong way. Ghana 1 – Serbia 0
82:00 – The teams are playing as if the roles were reversed as Ivanovic makes a great run and fires from just outside the box but the shot was always rising.
79:00 – Lovely move down the wing by Serbia as the cross comes to Pantelic who lets it go and Krasic fires one goalwards but Kingson makes an excellent save and pushes it over the bar. From the resulting corner, Vidic climbs high but his free header goes over as well.
76:00 – Serbia seems to have been freed up by being a man down as they work a nice set of passing movements but the final ball is poor. Serbia send in Subotic for Jonanovic to shore up their defense. Ghana really need to press here.
