Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah believes his side's 2-2 draw with Germany was not a true reflection of proceedings in Fortaleza on Saturday night.
The ex-international saw his charges rally from a goal down to take a 2-1 lead but were pegged back by a Miroslav Klose close range effort.
The Black Stars were impressive on the counter attack and match Joachim Loewâ€™s side in every department.
According to Appiah, his side were a shade above the Germans in the strength-sapping encounter.
"It was a great game. Germany are a big team. Our boys did well matching them. We had a lot of chances but we didn't take advantage of them," Appiah told TV reporters.
"We fought until the end. It was unfortunate it ended this way but on the whole it was a very good game.
"I know Portugal are a very good team, the same as the U.S. [are a very good team] but we will wait and see how it goes [on Sunday]."
The Black Stars are now third on the Group G table with one point and will hope Portugal beat USA on Sunday to throw the pool wide open.
