Minute Commentary
90' GERMANY 2-2 GHANA
In a World Cup that has been full of stellar games in the first nine days, this clash would have to be one of the picks of the bunch. Germany and Ghana gave absolutely everything as they looked to claim what would be three huge points, but in the end a draw is the right result when all is considered. The first half wasn't a classic, as a couple of dangerous Mesut Ozil crosses and some Ghanaian counter-attacks apart, there was not much to get excited about in Fortaleza. However, the second 45 minutes more than made up for all this, as Germany opened the scoring when Mario Gotze got on the end of Thomas Muller's right wing cross to uncovincingly head beyond Fatau Dauda. The Black Stars responded in the most impressive of fashions though, as Andre Ayew brilliantly headed into the far corner from Harrison Afful's cross. The men in red continued to build some momentum as Asamoah Gyan benefitted from some clumsiness in the middle of the pitch from Philipp Lahm as he got on the end of Sulley Muntari's through ball and curled his finish into the far corner of Manuel Neuer's net. Substitute Jordan Ayew wasted a golden opportunity to extend his side's advantage on the break, and when Joachim Low made two subs for Germany, the pendulum swung once more. Miroslav Klose took about a minute to stab home at the back post to restore parity and equal the record set by Ronaldo for World Cup goals as he increased his tally to 15, before fellow sub Bastian Schweinsteiger headed over from a great position shortly after. There were a plethora of half chances in the last ten minutes, but this match rightly ended with both teams collecting a point. The Germans might just be the happier with the result, as they are still top of Group G, while Ghana are in third with just one game left, but the neutrals were the real winners here.
90' HONOURS EVEN IN FORTALEZA
Toni Kroos' dinked delivery is cleared by John Boye, who has done hmself a mischief in the process, and the game ends Germany 2-2 Ghana. I didn't want that one to end!
90' MUNTARI BOOKED
Sulley Muntari is late on Toni Kroos - that's a booking for him, and he'll miss Ghana's final group stage match. Last kick of the game, 25 yards out, just left of centre for Germany.....
90' WASTED OPPORTUNITY
A German attack comes to an end, and the Black Stars look to break at pace. They have a three-on-two scenario as they enter the Germany half, but substitute Mubarak Wakaso is miles offside when he receives the ball on the left-hand side of the box. Poor from him - one minute left.
90' THREE MINUTES OF INJURY TIME
There will be three additional minutes in Fortaleza, and Miroslav Klose comes close to winning it for Germany with a shot on the turn that goes wide of the near post. What a moment that could have been.
89' NOT TOO FAR WIDE
Ghana aren't hanging on for a point here - not a bit of it. Harrison Afful shows their intent with a surging run down the right, before pulling the ball back for Gyan on the edge of the box. Gyan beats Neuer with his shot, but not the far post, and the score remains 2-2.
87' CRUCIAL CLEARANCE
Toni Kroos is again in the thick of things for Germany as he dinks a ball over the top for Ozil to run onto. Ozil tries to provide Muller with an open goal with a low pass across the six-yard box, but Jonathan Mensah again comes to the rescue for the Ghanaians with a sliding clearance.
84' BRILLIANT DEFENDING
Ghana go from one end to the other in the space of seconds, as Sulley Muntari floats a long ball into the path of Asamoah Gyan. The forward does Hummels like a kipper before teeing up Andre Ayew in the box. Ayew can't climb high enough to get over the ball and the offside flag was up anyway. Moments after this Thomas Muller gets on the end of Kroos' through ball, but Jonathan Mensah is across to slide tackle the striker. Fantastic defending.
82' TOO INTRICATE
The Germans should really make more of a promising move as Mesut Ozil threads a nice ball through for Philipp Lahm. Lahm should really shoot from the angle of the six-yard box, but he instead tries to backheel the ball in the direction of no one in particular. It hasn't been Lahm's best night in all honesty.
79' GHANA SWITCH IT UP
Ghana respond to those two German changes, and indeed the leveller, by making a sub of their own, as Rabiu is replaced by Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu for the Black Stars. Just over ten minutes left on the clock in Fortaleza.
77' MUST HIT THE TARGET
Germany have a free-kick, about 25 yards out, and they have four men over the top of it. Three of them dummy the ball in completely pointless fashion, before Schweinsteiger drills an attempt a couple of yards over the crossbar. Is there really any need for three dummies?
75' WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY
There has been a huge momentum shift since those two Germany changes, and Joachim Low's team are so close to going ahead in Fortaleza as Bastian Schweinsteiger gets his head to a corner, but sends his effort over the bar from six yards out. It's not been a bad second half so far.....
73' GERMANY 2-2 GHANA
The term "super sub" was invented for times like these. Barely on the pitch for a minute, Miroslav Klose pokes home at the far post after Benedikt Howedes had flicked a corner on towards the bottom corner. Predatory from Klose, and you wouldn't expect anything less. I'd expect more from the celebration tough, as the striker just about managed to complete a front flip. Careful Miroslav, at your age you'll do yourself a mischief.
72' GOOOAAALLL!!!
It didn't take him long did it? Miroslav Klose equals Ronaldo's World Cup goals record and more importantly brings Germany back on level terms in this game!
71' DOUBLE GERMAN CHANGE
Joachim Low tries to stop the momentum that Ghana were building at a rapid pace by making two substitutions. Miroslav Klose and Bastian Schweinsteiger are on for Mario Gotze and Sami Khedira respectively. Looks like those subs worked.....
69' ANOTHER CHANCE FOR GHANA
The men in red are really expressing themselves now, and the come within an inch or two of going two goals ahead as Andre Ayew just can't jump high enough to meet a cross from the right. Just over 20 minutes remain, and the Germans are rattled.
67' SHOULD HAVE BEEN THREE
Ghana are aboslutely rampant at the moment, and they nearly force another goal as substitute Jordan Ayew skips away from Shkodran Mustafi down the left. He sprints towards goal, cuts inside and goes it alone instead of using either Gyan or brother Andre in the centre. Neuer is behind the effort, and Germany can breathe. Make no mistake about it though - Joachim Low's men are on the ropes here.
64' GERMANY 1-2 GHANA
Less than ten minutes ago, Ghana had just fallen behind and you were wondering what they had left in the tank. They have responded in emphatic fashion though, as they now lead in this Group C match! Philipp Lahm, who was guilty of giving the ball away a few times against Portugal, loses possession in the middle of his own half here, and he is made to pay. Sulley Muntari spots the run of Gyan, threads it through for him, and the forward clinically sidefoots the ball past Neuer and into the far corner from ten yards.
63' GOOOAAALLL!!!
We officially have lift off in Fortaleza, as Asamoah Gyan scores to put Ghana ahead! What a turnaround!
62' SO NEARLY FOR GHANA
Benedikt Howedes has got away with one here, as an ill advised burst forward down the flanks leaves his defence exposed as Ghana spring a counter. Christian Atsu is the man who they look to get in behind, but the pass towards him is poor, and Mats Hummels is across to mop up the danger.
60' GOING FOR THE WIN
The intensity has racked up a couple of notches since those two lightning quick goals, and both sides are looking to go for the win now. Shkodran Mustafi gets down the outside for Germany, but his cross is easily collected by Fatau Dauda in the Ghana goal. Where's this one going now?
56' GERMANY 1-1 GHANA
Germany barely have time to stop celebrating Mario Gotze's opener before Harrison Afful uses all the time he has on the right-hand side to pick out a delightful cross for Andre Ayew to leap high above Shkodran Mustafi and head into the far corner of the net. In the space of three minutes, this game has sparked right into life. These last 30 minutes could be very interesting.
55' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Hello, hello, hello. Ghana have hit straight back! Andre Ayew has equalised for Ghana!
52' GERMANY 1-0 GHANA
We have had to wait a little while, but we now have a goal in this Group G game, and it's one of the highest quality from Mario Gotze to break the deadlock. Thomas Muller picks up the ball on the right wing, uses the overlap of substitute Shkodran Mustafi as a decoy, and floats a lovely ball into the path of Gotze, who had got in between Boye and Mensah to head home. Replays show that Gotze didn't quite connect with that header in textbook fashion, but they all count, and it is the Germans who hit the front in Fortaleza.
51' GOOOAAALLL!!!
We have our first goal of the night in Fortaleza! Mario Gotze gives Germany the lead!
50' AYEW COMING ON
Jordan Ayew is the man who is warming up on the sidelines for the Ghanains, and he will join his brother Andre on the pitch.
48' SCRAPPY START
There is a severe lack of rythym in the opening stages of this second period, as both sides are committing needless fouls in the middle of the pitch. Looking at the touchline, it seems as though Ghana are going to be the first side to change things up - they are readying a sub.
46' SECOND HALF BEGINS
Ghana get the second half of this Group G clash up and running in Fortaleza.
45' GERMANY 0-0 GHANA
These two sides played out two cracking matches in their respective group openers, with Germany dismantling Portugal and Ghana being involved in a thriller against USA, so it was somewhat inevitable that this one was going to be goalless after 45 minutes. All in all it has been an interesting, if not compelling, first half, that has seen some good football, but no real opportunities of note. The Germans have had most of the ball, and the majority of their threat has come from Mesut Ozil breaking free down the flanks and trying to find Thomas Muller in the middle. Their opponents' backline has been disciplined and dogged however, and Muller has yet to have any joy, with one sliding effort that went wide the only exception. Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira have had half chances with first time shots from the edge of the area, but both of them failed to hit the target. As for the Ghanaians, they look quite threatening on the break, with the pace of Christian Atsu causing Benedikt Howedes a world of trouble down the right-hand side. However, aside from a Sulley Muntari palm stinger that never really had Manuel Neuer worried, and a strong run from Asamoah Gyan that ended with the German stopper flying out to stop him in his tracks, the Black Stars have had no moments where you thought they might rattle the back of the net. The score is finely poised for the second peiod - join us back here in a couple of moments to see how it all pans out in Fortaleza.
45' NO GOALS AT HALF TIME
Seconds after Germany had very nervously and uncovincingly attempted to defend a Ghana corner, the referee blows his whistle to bring a goalless first 45 minutes to a close.
44' POOR CALL
The Germans are playing a high line, and Chrstian Atsu nearly makes the most of it as he gets onto the end of Sulley Muntari's lofted ball over the top. However, the offside flag had incorrectly gone up, and Atsu was deprived of the chance to sprint towards goal.
41' JUST NEEDED A TOUCH
As half time approaches, Germany are really starting to turn up the heat. Philipp Lahm spreads an intelligent ball into the path of Thomas Muller on the angle of the Ghana area, and the striker blasts a ball across the face of goal that is just begging to be put in. However, no one in a white shirt had taken a gamble, and it remians goalless.
38' NOT A BAD EFFORT
Sami Khedira spies Mario Gotze running in behind, and he finds his teammate with a nicely lofted ball over the top of Mohammed Rabiu. Gotze waits for the ball to drop, before volleying it true, but Dauda was always behind that one. We've yet to have a big chance in Fortaleza - we are getting there, though.
36' CAN'T FIND MULLER
We've seen this move plenty of times in the first 40 minutes, but once more for the Germans, it just fails to come off for them. Kroos releases Ozil into the area, and when the Arsenal midfielder tries to find Muller in the centre of the box, Harrison Afful is there to mop up the danger and put the ball behind for a corner.
34' MUNTARI CLOSE TO A BELTER
Sulley Muntari takes aim and fires from 40 yards, but Manuel Neuer is across well to palm the ball away. Moments later Neuer has to be alert once more as he forces Gyan into putting the ball behind for a goal kick after the former Sunderland man had broke free down the left for the Black Stars.
32' PRESSURE RELIEVED BY ATSU
There is no doubt that Christian Atsu looks like a real player for the future, but his final product leaves much to be desired. After a promising move from Ghana ends with the ball at his feet, he lofts a hopeless cross above everyone, and the ball goes out for a goal kick. He must do better in those sort of positions.
30' NEARLY AN OWN GOAL
Jerome Boateng splits the Ghana defence in half with one swing of his boot, as a lovely ball down the right sends Mario Gotze on his bike, and into the area. Gotze tries to find Muller with a pull back, but Boye whacks the ball against Mensah, who is very close to inadvertantly putting the ball into his own net. A corner is all that Joachim Low's men get though, and it is easily cleared when it comes in.
28' AN INCH OR TWO OFF
Ghana manufacture a good move down the left-hand side, and Kwadwo Asamoah spots the diagonal run of Gyan. However, the full-back releases the ball a split second too late, and Gyan is ruled offside, which is just about the correct call. The striker would have been one-on-one with Neuer there as well.
26' COULD HAVE DONE BETTER
We all know that Toni Kroos can be deadly from 25 yards out, but after neatly skipping away from Boye on the edge of the Ghana area, he blazes a left-footed shot well over the bar to relieve the pressure off the Ghanaians.
24' GERMANY IN CONTROL
They have looked a little bit vulnerable when hit on the counter, but all in all the Germans are starting to exert a stranglehold on this match. They are dominating possession in the middle of the park, but are also struggling to get in behind a well drilled Ghana backline at present.
22' CHANCE FOR MULLER
He's barely been in the game in these first 20 minutes, but Thomas Muller nearly opens the scoring for the second match running for Germany. Ozil again escapes down the right flank, and he picks out Muller's run towards the six-yard box. Unfortunately for the Bayern Munich man, John Boye's presence was enough to put him off as he put the ball wide of the post on the slide.
20' HOPEFUL ATTEMPT
Asamoah Gyan drops deep to pick up a loose ball, and he quickly turns it over to Kevin-Prince Boateng. Boateng doesn't have anybody up alongside him, so he decides to take a pot shot from range, but Manuel Neuer was never going to be troubled by that as the ball flew well wide of the far post.
18' WEAK SHOT
For seemingly the first time in the match a German player has some green grass to run into, as Mesut Ozil sprints (I think that was sprinting by his standards anyway) down the right before pulling the ball back for Sami Khedira. The Real Madrid man has a lot of time to pick his spot, but he weakly sidefoots the ball into the arms of Dauda.
16' DISCIPLINED DEFENDING
Ghana look a lot more organised at the back than Portugal at the moment, who were very shaky against Joachim Low's side even before Pepe's dismissal. Mario Gotze tries to up the ante for his team, but his through ball for Muller is easily cut out by Jonathan Mensah. This has been a promising start for the Black Stars.
14' ATSU AT IT AGAIN
Ghana again look to use the raw speed of Atsu on the counter-attack, and it nearly bears fruit for them. The winger bursts down the right wing, before cutting inside and letting fly with an attempt that is smartly parried away by Manuel Neuer and out to saftey. There has been a great tempo to the opening 15 minutes of this game.
12' GOOD BLOCK
Mesut Ozil pops up on the right flank and pulls a well weighted ball back towards Thomas Muller. Muller unselfishly backheels it for Toni Kroos on the edge of the box, but the midfielder's low effort is blocked by John Boye. The Germans are starting to click into gear here you sense.
10' A TAD TOO MUCH PACE
Philipp Lahm, playing in his relatively new defensive midfield role, finds a bit of room for himself and picks out Mesut Ozil rushing into the box. Lahm's pass for his teammate is well directed, but Fatau Dauda is alert to it and gets to the ball just before the Arsenal man can shoot.
7' BLAZED OVER
Christian Atsu, who looked like a menace against USA despite displaying a lack of end product, surges down the right for the Ghanaians and pulls a ball back into the area for Asamoah Gyan to attack. The striker gets there ahead of Hummels, but he skews his effort a long way over the bar. There was that speed on the counter I was talking about, though.
5' PATIENT PLAY
Germany are passing the ball around nicely at the back inside these opening five minutes, but as soon as they cross the halfway line the men in red are quick to hussle them off the ball. Ghana's gameplan looks to be to catch Per Mertesacker and Mats Hummels with pace on the break. It should be interesting to see how this one develops.
3' BETTER START
This was always going to be the case given the quickfire nature of Clint Dempsey's goal on Monday night, but Ghana have started much better this time around than they did against the USA. They are getting amongst their opponents in the centre of the park, restricting the German midfielders to little or no room to work their magic.
1' KICK OFF
Germany, decked out in an all white kit, get us started in Fortaleza. Let there be goals.
0' BOATENG BROTHERS FACE OFF
So, as expected the two Boateng brothers are set to go head-to-head tonight, with Jerome lining up for Germany and Kevin Prince being selected for Ghana. Elswhere, Michael Essien is left out for the Black Stars once more, while Miroslav Klose will have to wait to add to his sizeable tally of World Cup goals, as he is on the bench.
0' FULL TEAMS
Germany: Neuer, Boateng, Howedes, Lahm, Mertesacker, Hummels, Khedira, Kroos, Muller, Ozil, Gotze. Subs: Grosskreutz, Ginter, Schweinsteiger, Schurrle, Podolski, Klose, Zieler, Draxler, Durm, Mustafi, Weidenfeller, Kramer. Ghana: Dauda, Rabiu, Affui, Muntari, Boye, Mensah, Atsu, Asamoah, Gyan, Boateng, A Ayew. Subs: Adams, Inkoom, Opare, Essien, Acquah, Badu, Larsen Kwarasey, J Ayew, Adomah, Sumaila, Waris, Wakaso.
0' EARLY TEAM NEWS
For Germany, captain Philipp Lahm will resume his role in the defensive midfield position, while defender Mats Hummels will be monitored after bruising his thigh in the win over Portugal. Aside from that, manager Joachim Low has no injury worries to contend with. For Ghana, midfielder Michael Essien has resumed training after he recovered from a toe issue, and could start for the Black Stars, while Kevin Prince Boateng could make the starting eleven, meaning he would be likely to square up against his brother Jerome, who plays in defence for the Germans.
0' REF WATCH
Our referee in Fortaleza will be Brazil's Sandro Ricci, as the 39-year-old takes charge of his second match in the tournament. Ricci was the man who was at the centre of the controversy surrounding Karim Benzema's second goal in France's 3-0 victory over Honduras, as the crowd thought at first that the goal line technology had said no goal, before it then said goal. The man from Brazil refereed the 2013 FIFA Club World Cup final between Bayern Munich and Raja Casablanca. His assistants tonight shall be fellow countrymen Emerson de Carvalho and Marcelo Van Gasse, while Peru's Victor Carrillo will be our fourth official.
0' KEVIN HOPING TO BE THE REAL PRINCE
While Germany were strolling to an utterly convincing 4-0 win against Portugal in their first match, Ghana suffered an agonising 2-1 defeat to USA, with the Americans claiming a late winner to steal the three points. If Ghana are to stand any chance of getting out of this group, you would imagine that they couldn't afford to lose tonight, and Kevin Prince Boateng has been making all the right noises ahead of this clash, where he will face up against his brother Jerome. The former has been opining that the Germans have no leaders in times of trouble – can he step up to the plate and give the Black Stars a much-needed shot in the arm?
0' GERMANY LOOKING FOR ANOTHER MULLERING
A lot has been made of the statistic that a European team has never won a World Cup on South American soil in the build-up to, and in the early stages of, this World Cup. However, in their first game Germany got the doubters wondering with a thoroughly dominant 4-0 victory over Portugal, with Thomas Muller netting a hat-trick. In all honesty though, there were standout players all over the pitch for Joachim Low's side, and if they can produce a performance of a similar calibre to last Monday, then progression from Group G looks to be as good as certain for them.
0' GERMANY AND GHANA GUNNING FOR GLORY
We are nine days into the 2014 World Cup and some teams are starting to experience the euphoria of progression from the group stages and some are suffering the agony of an early exit. Tonight in Group G, Germany and Ghana will be aiming to put themselves in a good position to make sure of progression and reduce the possibility of a group stage departure. These two sides have only met on two previous occasions, with the Germans prevailing both times – they cantered to a 6-1 win in a friendly in 1993, while they also triumphed four years ago in South Africa, with a Mesut Ozil goal helping them to a 1-0 win. Can the Ghanaians buck the trend this evening? Join us here at 20:00 for live text commentary of this match to find out.
