Ghana U17
FT
0 - 1
United States U17
75' A. Akinola
...
The US play out the final minutes over here in Delhi and book their place in the Round of 16.
...
90+4' - Ghana looking for a last-ditch equaliser. And they get a corner as Lavey again goes down the right to meet Gloster.
...
But Gloster is down now holding his head. That Lavey shot seems to have come off his head this time.
...
90+1' - Six minutes of added on time. 

Lavey gets in and lets one fly. Comes off Gloster and kept in by the US.
...
90' - AKINOLA!

What a miss. Some bad touches from either team is followed by some good hold up play by Sargent. He finds Vassilev. Who gets it out to the right. The cross somehow makes his way to Akinola. Who blazes wide and high at the back post.
...
89' - Great work from Ghana after they clear from the corner. 

Lavey takes on all. Finally takes a shot but Gloster is there.
...
88' - Watts on the overlap and now gets US the corner.

Yousif meanwhile has been stretchered away. Ghana will play the last 10 minutes down a man.
...
87' - Eric Ayiah with some brilliant touches and turns. But his is caught between a sea of red. Takes a shot but that doesn't have a prayer to get in.
...
86' - The US looks to get the better of Ghana.

But Lavey gets the ball and runs down the right byline. 

Gets it to Danso, who tries to wiggle his way through the crowd and goes down - shown the yellow for diving.
...
85' - Yusif - who seems to have come off the worse  is stretchered off here.
...
82' - Ghana with another change as Toku is taken off. 

Another clash of heads. This time it is Sargent and Yusif who came together.
...
81' - A long ball again by Ghana but to no avail here.
...
80' - Carleton with a cynical pull on the Ghana midfielder. And now he makes way for Vassilev.
...
79' - Angled ball into the US box. But the keeper - Garces comes out to claim.
...
78' - A FK to Ghana. And then to Lavey and Yakubu who combine on the right side. 

But Lavey's bad touch lets the ball get away.
...
76' - Clash of heads between two Ghana players and that means the referee will blow his whistle to bring the game to a stop. 

Levey and Yakubu being tended to.
...
75' - GOAAAL!

Against the run of play you will feel. Akinola finally gets some space and room to get a shot away. Brilliant work to get the ball back from Durkin. Feeds it to Goslin who in turn finds Akinola. 

The winger squeezes his shot between the legs of the approaching defenders and the keeper - who was moving the other way.
...
74'- SHOT!

Again. Another brilliant acceleration from Ibrahim. Gets past Gloster and then hits it at goal. But can't find anything but the side netting.
...
73' - Ghana going at the US at will and more than that - getting the ball back when it seems the attack is all but off. 

The ball finally goes to Gabriel Leveh who tries an audacious cheap from a tight angle.
...
71' - Brilliant from Akinola. But the US winger had the ball stuck under his feet.
...
70' - Mohammed shown the yellow for the challenge on Sands. 

And now Yakubu shown the card for a lunge on Carleton.
...
69'-   Brilliant from Sands. Great run from Ibrahim and then Yakubu to get to the right wing.

Sands however, was strong on his tackle and then a brilliant run with the ball sees him finally upheld by Mohammed.
...
68' - Not been a good game for Carleton. And this just sums it up. A swing of his foot meets only thin air and then sees the ball played off him for a throw-in.
...
67' - The US go forward. But not for long. Ghana well disciplined at the back and the Reds have to go back.
...
66' - Ghana again looking to exploit their advantage of pace. But that ball had too much on it.
...
65' - SHOT!

Ferry again lets it rip. His shots have had the fizz but not yet on target!
...
64' - Dangerous. 

A crossfield ball to the right was headed back to the keeper by Gloster. With the Ghanaians coming on from all angles that was not one that the GK appreciated.
...
63' -  The US do well to get the ball off the Africans. 

But Goslin has one too  many touches on the ball. Gives away a free kick. 
...
62' - A couple of changes for US. 

Akinola comes in for the disappointing for Weah. 

Watts meanwhile comes on for Dest.
...
61' - Long ball into Carleton from the back. But the American's touch is too heavy. 

And now offside on the other end. Eric Ayiah is flagged off.
...
58' - Corner played short. And that is as far as it will go. Not the best execution over there.
...
57' - Mohammed Kudus with a great run down the right. his cross is blocked and they get a corner for their efforts.
...
The US are down to 10 with Sands on the sidelines getting treatment for a bloody nose.
...
55' -  SHOT!

This time Aminu on the turn. But as has been the case so far. No joy for the men in white in the game.
...
54' - It's all Ghana here. They are looking the more likely to get the breakthrough.
...
53' - Another chance!

Another great run by Ibrahim Sulley on the right. He finds Toku with the cross. He takes a touch and launches one but that is headed towards the stars.
...
51' - Mohamed with a great run and powers himself in. And squeezes a cross in. US living on the edge.
...
50' - Drikin with a long ranger. But that is off the mark.
...
49' - Sands with a long ball for Weah. But that was overhit.
...


48'- Ghana on the prowl again but Mohammed can't get that out of his feet
