GHANA CAN ERASE SENEGAL, CAMEROON'S W/CUP RECORDS â€“ RAJEVAC
Ghana's manager, Milovan Rajevac, believes the Black Stars' World Cup adventure is far from over after they reached their first quarter-final with a stunning 2-1 victory against the United States.
Asamoah Gyan scored the winning goal after three minutes of extra time in Rustenburg. Kevin-Prince Boateng had put Ghana ahead, only for Landon Donovan to level from the penalty spot.
Ghana will now face Uruguay in the quarter-final and Rajevac said: 'When we reached the final of the Africa Cup, the boys learned how to compete. That is the most important thing and I now hope Ghana will go further.'
He added: 'Ghana is now among the eight best teams in the world. This is fantastic. We have the support of the whole world because we are the only African country still playing at the World Cup.'
It was a theme taken up by man of the match, Ghana's midfielder, Andre Ayew, who said: 'We had to fight to the last second and we gave our all. We fought for the continent and for Ghana. We hope the whole African nation is proud.
'Everything is possible. We are very tired but we have five days rest and will focus for the next game against Uruguay. They have great strikers but if God is behind us anything is possible.
