U-17 WC INDIA 2017: Ghana lose 0-1 to USA

The Ghanaians lost most of their ball possession to U.S. in the first half which made the young Yankees dictate the pace of the game and also take control of the midfield.

United States secured their passage into the round of 16 riding on substitute Ayo Akinola's 75-minute strike for a 1-0 victory over Ghana in an enthralling Group A game of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup 2017 on Monday.

Ten minutes later a clash of heads between USA captain Josh Sargent and Black Starlets Abdul Yusif reduced Ghana to 10 men as both sides had already used all three subs and Yusif could not re-enter the match due to injury.

He is yet to fully recover from a bruising tackle in that match, although he participated in recovery training a day after Ghana accounted for Colombia.

Bloom resigns as lawyer for embattled movie mogul Weinstein
Weinstein has not yet commented on her resignation. "I'm not at all surprised to see it". I have behaved badly.' I'm like, 'Good, I'll tell you what to do.

"But today was a tough match for both teams".

Second half substitute Caicedo had Colombia's best chance of the match in the 80th minute as he was sent free at the edge of the Ghana box but his low right-footed grounder beat the goalkeeper but went out inches off the left upright.

Ghana, Guinea, Mali and Niger will be representing Africa at the tournament.

With Ghana beginning their World Cup with a victory, the players of the national team treated the 24,300 people in the stadium to their traditional dancing.

Leon Goretzka's Spectacular Goal In World Cup Qualifying
Goretzka got the home side off to a great start with a brilliant back-heeled goal inside the left post in the eighth minute. Azerbaijan then forced an equaliser before half-time, only for Germany to emerge for the second-half freshly riled.

In a battle for the top spot in the group, both Ghana and US showed enterprise and even though the Americans dominated possession, the Africans looked risky with their speed and had eight attempts on target to their opponents' six in the first half.

The other match in Group A was played between India and Columbia, the latter won 2-1 and hammered the host nation to two defeats.

The tie will be live at 11.30am on free-to-air channels GTV Sports Plus and Kwese Free Sports as well as on pay television channel Star-Times.

Hatton retains Dunhill title
As the European Tour tweeted out after his round, Fleetwood was four under on the day when missing the fairway. I didn't see a leader board on the back nine until the 16th green, when I saw Ross was at 21 under.
