Ghana have had the best chances in the first half, as Germany are held to a goallessÂ draw at the break of their exciting World Cup match.
Thomas Muller was hoping to add to his hat-trick in the 4-0 mauling of Portugal and MatsÂ HummelsÂ shook off a thigh injury, butÂ BastianÂ SchweinsteigerÂ wasnâ€™t fit to start yet.
Ghana fell 2-1 to USA in the final minutes and were in dire need of a result.
Brothers Kevin Prince and JeromeÂ BoatengÂ faced off for different nations.
Ghana had a confident start, asÂ AsamoahÂ GyanÂ fired over from a ChristianÂ Atsucross, then the provider had his own shot to sting ManuelÂ Neuerâ€™sÂ gloves and Muller came sliding in on aÂ MesutÂ OzilÂ assist.
A long-range screamer from Milan midfielderÂ SulleyÂ MuntariÂ again forcedÂ Neuerinto a save and the goalkeeper sprinted off his line to put offÂ Gyan.
Muller rolled across the six-yard box, but MarioÂ GotzeÂ couldnâ€™t quite get there in time for the tap-in.
