Phew! What a game it was! 3 sending offs! 3 amazing goals and some intense drama and excitement right till the very end!
...
Dempsey is the hero again as his goal and assist proved to be enough in the end for USA to book their place in the semi-finals
...
USA are through to the semi-finals where they will face either Argentina or Venezuela
...
PEEP! PEEP! PEEP! FT: USA 2-1 ECU
...
90+3' The corner bounces around in the box, but in the end, Arroyo's header goes wide for a goalkick
...
90+3' ECU wins a corner!
...
90+1' ALMOST AN OWN GOAL! Arroyo's cross from the right-hand side almost deflects of Brooks to his own net! SO CLOSE!
...
90' We have 4 minutes of added time!
...
89' HUGE DRAMA! The ref sends off Quinteros, the ECU manager has been given his marching orders
...
88' USA win a free-kick near their own box and they will be in no hurry to take it
...
87' 3 minutes left, can ECU score a dramatic late equaliser or will USA hold on to their lead?
...
86' ECU have monopolised possession and it is backs to the wall job here for USA
...
...
84' Brad Guzan now gets a yellow card for some time wasting
...
83' Montero is causing plenty of problems on the left hand side and the final whistle can't come early enough for USA
...
80' Bedoya comes off to be replaced by Zusi
...
78' CLOSE! Ayovi sends in an absolute thunderbolt from 35 yards out which flies narrowly above Brad Guzan's goal. ECU are certainly piling on the pressure
...
...
76' CLOSE! It should have been 2-2! Montero sends in a lovely ball and Valencia rises unmarked but inexplicably sends his header wide
...
75' Clint Dempsey comes off to be replaced by Kyle Beckerman. Defensive move by Klinsmann here
...
USA 2-1 ECU
...
74' GOOOOOOOOAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Arroyo scores for ECU! Ayovi pulls back the free kick to the edge of the box and Arroyo sends in a magnificent low strike to give Ecuador a lifeline
...
72' Bedoya goes into the book now for a cynical foul on Paredes, free- kick near the byline for Ecuador
...
...
68' Ecuador are now throwing plenty of bodies up front but the USA defence is holding strong
...
...
It is a long way back for Ecuador now
...
USA 2-0 Ecuador
...
65' GOOOOOOOOAAAALLLLLLL! Zardes scores for USA! The move started with John Brooks sending in a wonderful ball from the heart of the defence. Bedoya sent in an inviting cross from the right hand side and Dempsey's scuffed shot made its way to Zardes who tapped it into an empty net
...
63' Paredes now goes into the book for a foul on Bobby Wood! Phew what a first 20 minutes it has been in the second half
...
61' SHOT! Some brilliant work by Montero and Enner Valencia sets up Arroyo just outside the box, but his shot goes high and wide
...
59' SHOT! Dempsey looks very threatening today and he creates some space for the shot brilliantly but it goes just above the bar.
...
...
56' Booby Wood gets booked as well for a fracas involving himself and Ayovi. The booking means Wood will miss the next match if USA go through to the semi-finals
...
52' The game finally gets underway with both sides down to 10 men! It will be very interesting to see how both the teams will adjust to this
...
50' RED CARD! Jermain Jones gets a straight red card as well for an innocuous tap on Paredes' face ! Pretty harsh if you ask me. Both ECU and USA are down to 10 men now. Jones and Paredes clashed after Valencia's foul and Klinsmann is absolutely livid with the referee
...
50' RED CARD! Antonio Valencia is sent off for a horrible stamp on Bedoya. Very poor by the Manchester United man, not at all in the right spirit
...
48' CLOSE! Ayovi sends in a wonderful ball and Antonio Valencia's flicked header almost finds Enner Valencia who is just inches away from tapping it into an empty net! ECU have started off the second half very well
