PRINCETON, N.J. -- The United States men’s soccer national team took to the pitch to take on Ghana in their first game of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and Ivies everywhere took to twitter to comment on the Americans’ exciting 2-1 victory.
Clint Dempsey opened the scoring with a goal 30
seconds into the game, and then the US held Ghana off until the
82nd minute, when Andre Ayew netted the equalizer.
But four minutes later, the Americans were back on top thanks to a
John Brooks header off a corner kick, and the USA
squad held on for the 2-1 victory.

If the USA wins the #WorldCup the rest of the world should have to call it 'soccer' for the next 4 years.— Kyle Merber (@TheRealMerb) June 16, 2014
