World Cup 2010, Germany Vs. Ghana: Black Stars Hold Germans Scoreless Into Half

Germany has had the better of possession and chances, but Ghana has shown themselves dangerous against the Group D favorites as the teams go into halftime drawn 0-0.

Germany has put three shots on goal to Ghana’s one, but the Black Stars have come close to connecting on chances a number of time through Kwadwo Asamoah, the attacking midfielder and forward Asamoah Gyan just barely off in connecting their passes.

Ghana also came closest to the first goal, with Kevin Prince Boateng’s flicked header from an Asamoah corner saved off-the-line my Philipp Lahm, standing at the far post.

Germany’s best chance came when midfielder Mesut Ozil was played behind the Ghana defense and went in alone on Richard Kingson. The Ghanian goalkeeper came out to meet the attacker 16 yards from goal, laying out to make the save.

Cacau, filling in for the suspended Miroslav Klose, had Germany’s other two shots on goal.
