USA 2 - GHANA - 1

Many Americans, here and across the world, were holding their collective breaths as we watched and waited for the last 5 minutes of the United State's first match to end tonight in Brazil at the World Cup.

In case you aren't a soccer fan......this was a bit of a revenge game as Ghana has beaten the US in their last two attempts to advance in the World Cup, which is held every four years.

 US goalie saving a sure goal....what a ballet!!!
 One of our best went out with a game ending injury.....will he be able to play on Sunday??  Fingers crossed.
 This isn't about guys running around in shorts and long socks....truly this can be a brutal game.......not for sissies. Unlike football, they wear very little protection.

Winning goal.....a beautiful, picture perfect header!!!
