With Germany back to their winning ways tonight, they topped Group D and will now meet England on Sunday.
Mesut Ozil – scored Germany’s winner on 59 minutes
Germany defeated Ghana 1-0 through a very good goal from Mesut Ozil after 59 minutes, and they top Group D with 6 points and will meet the runner-up in Group C – which is England.
Mesut Ozil scored with a terrific dipping left-foot shot from the edge of the penalty area and gave Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingson no chance.
By not winning by two goals earlier today, England must now face Germany on Sunday, whereas they could have gained an easier draw against Ghana, who finished runners-up in that group if they had managed to win Group C.
Ghana will now play the USA on Saturday night at Rustenburg, with a local KO time of 8:30 pm, and the US will be fancied to go through to the quarter-finals.
It looks like it could be another England – Germany classic on Sunday, and the game will take place at the Mangaung/Bloemfontein Stadium, with a local KO time of 4:00 pm.
