The ball, the referee, bad luck? No, none of these reasons. Today, the US were outplayed after letting themselves down with conceding yet another early goal.
I'm still impressed by their spirit, their determination, their passion and indeed, their skill, but Ghana deserved the win.
Okay, I sincerely hope England win tomorrow against arch rivals of many World Cups, Germany. How can I not hope that?
I'm still tipping Spain to lift the title, but England's other arch rivals, Argentina, look good to me.
