Germany would win Group D with a 1-0 win over Ghana.
The match was close in the first half but Germany would take the lead in the 60th minute with a Mesut Ozil goal. It was a shot from the edge of the box and little chance for the goalkeeper to make a save. Overall, it wasn’t a great performance from either side but Ozil has proved to be a breakout player for the Germans.
Despite losing the match Ghana would place second in the group and advances on goal difference over Australia.
The Germans have been up and down in their first three group stage matches and will now face England in the next round. Ghana will have a rematch against the USA who they faced in 2006 and knocked out with a 2-1 victory.
