Day Fifteen at the World Cup

Portugal-Ghana 2-1 : Portugal had a big goal differential to overcome in this game, ever since losing 0-4 to Germany in the first game.  They started their effort with a cross that was deflected into Ghanaian John Boye's own goal in the 31st minute.  Ghana equalized in the 57th minute with a goal from Asamoah Gyan, assisted by Kwadwo Asamoah.  Portugal went back on top in the 80th minute with a left footed shot from Christiano Ronaldo after Ghana's keeper pushed it right to his feet.

United States-Germany 0-1 :  With Ghana out of the picture, the USA only need to keep it close, and went on to the Round of 16 in spite of losing to Germany.  It was a fairly tame game, with the goal coming from Thomas Muller in the 55th minute following a corner kick.

Algeria-Russia 1-1 : Russia scored first with a goal from Alexander Kokorin in the 6th minute, a header from the middle of the box to the top left corner. Kokorin was assisted by Dmitriy Kombarov.   Islam Slimani equalized in the 60th minute on a header from close range, the assist going to Yaciime Brahimi.   

South Korea-Belgium 0-1 : Jan Vertonghen scored the only goal of the game in the 78th minute to put Belgium on top in Group H.  Belgium played the second half a player down after Stephen Dufour was sent off with a straight red after a fairly mild foul.
