Ozil puts Ger­mans top of the group

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

GHANA ................................................... 0 GER­MANY............................................... 1 GEr­ManY set up a mouth­wa­ter­ing last-16 clash with Eng­land as Me­sut ozil’s sec­ond­half strike proved the dif­fer­ence against Ghana at Soc­cer City.

The win for Joachim Low’s side took them to the top of Group d and means they will face Eng­land in Bloemfontein on Sun­day af­ter­noon, while Ghana en­sured african rep­re­sen­ta­tion in the knock­out phase by edg­ing out aus­tralia on goal dif­fer­ence. The Black Stars will now take on USa in rusten­burg.

The Ger­man con­tin­gent were jeer­ing any touch for Ber­lin-born kevin-Prince Boateng, whose tackle on Michael Bal­lack in the Fa Cup fi­nal last month ruled the Ger­many star out of the World Cup.

Thomas Muller found ozil in space out­side the area and he flashed a left-foot shot into the net on the hour mark.
