Half-time report: Ghana frighten Germany as Black Stars get best chances

Ghana had the best chances of the first half of the match

Ghana have had the best chances in the first half, as Germany are held to a goalless draw at the break of their exciting World Cup match.

Thomas Muller was hoping to add to his hat-trick in the 4-0 mauling of Portugal and Mats Hummels shook off a thigh injury, but Bastian Schweinsteiger wasn’t fit to start yet.

Ghana fell 2-1 to USA in the final minutes and were in dire need of a result.

Brothers Kevin Prince and Jerome Boateng faced off for different nations.

Ghana had a confident start, as Asamoah Gyan fired over from a Christian Atsucross, then the provider had his own shot to sting Manuel Neuer’s gloves and Muller came sliding in on a Mesut Ozil assist.

A long-range screamer from Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari again forced Neuerinto a save and the goalkeeper sprinted off his line to put off Gyan.

Muller rolled across the six-yard box, but Mario Gotze couldn’t quite get there in time for the tap-in.
