Ghana Eliminates U.S. in World Cup


The United States national team was eliminated from the World Cup in the third minute of extra time in today’s game against Ghana. Asamoah “Baby Jet” Gyan scored the winning goal, and Ghana will move on to play Uruguay at the quarterfinal stage in Johannesburg on Friday. “I thought at 1–1 we had a chance, but we didn’t have enough freshness against Ghana’s power,” said U.S. coach Bob Bradley. “We have a great squad. We’re proud but disappointed not to have gone further.” [CNN, Goal/NYT]
