After 30 minutes we see a very interesting game between two teams that play in a very physical way combined with mastery positioning and the understanding of tactics provided by their coaches. They are so well matched that they have not been able to strike balls on target due to the factor that most of the game as been played in the centre of the field.

53 minutes and the first really dangerous chance that ended up belonging to Ghana through Asamoah Gyan’s effort that hit the post.

78 minutes and finally a 10 man Serbia reply with a dangerous opportunity. Shot by Krasic just to see his effort being saved outstandingly by Kingson.

82 minutes and the referee Baldassi decided on a penalty in favour of Ghana. It is their chance now...

GOALLLLLLLLLLL Ghana... He scores. Asamoah Gyan takes the spot perfectly allowing the African side to lead with 5 minutes to go.

92 minutes and Asamoah Gyan hits the post allowing Ghana to finish pressuring the Serbians.

Ghana makes it happen!!! Without Essien and Muntari. They top the group waiting for the match between Germany-Australia.

First African victory in the World Cup...

MAN OF THE MATCH – Asamoah Gyan
