Hopes fell short late in the evening for the American side that has impressed more than just themselves. Early into extra time midnight struck on the Cinderella story that was the hopes of the US National Team.

I feel as if Ghana didn’t win the game, rather, the USA lost it. Chance after chance came and went and slowly but surely the tired legs of the Americans were unable to fight on. Ghana, on the other hand, seemed to never tire as their fighting spirit that was shown in all of the group stage was put on display yet again. Their “never say die” attitude overshadowed that of the US.

It was a well deserved win, although both goals seemed to come against the run of play and usually sure handed goalkeeper Tim Howard was beat unexpectedly by a near post shot that most thought should have been stopped. But in the end it is heartbreak for the North Americans and joy for the continent of Africa as their one shining star continues to bring hope to many.

Ghana should be able to surprise Uruguay with their speed and technicality but they have to focus on the two stars; Suarez and Forlan. After that everything will take care of itself for Ghana.
