USA vs. GhanaWith a score of 2-1, the United States lost to Ghana in extra time and is out of the 2010 World Cup. 

Ghana scored early, within the first few minutes of the game. It wasn't until the second half that USA got a penalty kick, and Landon Donavan came through again and scored a goal tying it 1-1.

The game went into extra time, and Ghana scored another goal. While USA put up a good fight, they just couldn't manage to get to the net again.

Ghana took the game with a final score of 2-1.

Ghana will play Uruguay Friday in the quarterfinals; and the United States sadly heads home.

I was Team USA all the way, and it's too bad we didn't make it further. But now that we're out, I'm rooting for Ghana. They're a strong team and the only African team left in the World Cup. It would be nice to see them win on their home turf.

Will you continue to watch the World Cup now that the United States is out, and if so, who will you root for?
