Congrats to Ghana on their victory over our comeback kings. Great defense and good ball control. Though I'd like to say that after scoring the winner in extra time, Ghana's team suddenly got hit with a monumental amount of "injuries" and lethargy. While its all perfectly legal and its part of soccer, I think Ghana was deeply unsportsmanlike. It's one thing to get tripped and fake a hurt knee. It's another to slip, fall and then lie there as one Ghanian player did, taking up at least two minutes of play time. That's was just wrong and the ref should done something. Not saying we got robbed like we did against Slovenia AND against Algeria, but its another thing FIFA needs to work on.
Still, bitching aside, way to go Ghana.
