How Ghana players performed in the Germany World Cup clash

Published on: 23 June 2010

Abhishek Mehrotra rates the performance of Ghana players in the Group D game between Germany and the Black Stars on Wednesday.

Ghana

Richard Kingson - 7.5

Was in splendid form after his fumbles in the previous game. Denied the Germans time and again. It was only a spectacular strike by Oezil that finally beat him.

John Pantsil - 6.5

Made some good runs on the right but was let down by Prine Tagoe up front.

John Mensah - 6

Steady performance. Kept Cacau quiet and closed down the German forwards very quickly.

Jonathan Mensah - 6.5

Kept Lukas Podolski on a tight leash throughout the game. The German tried cutting inside or moving to the byline - but Mensah was up to the task.

Hans Sarpei - 6

Did a very good job of keeping the dangerous Thomas Mueller quiet on the left. Played some lovely one-twos with Ayew up front and provided decent service on the flanks.

Kevin Prince Boateng - 6

Had a poor game for his adopted country against his home country. Lahm especially skipped past as if Boateng wasn't there.

Anthony Annan - 6.5

Protected his backline well and helped Ghana keep up with the Germans in midfield. Was instrumental in keeping Oezil quiet in the first half.

Kwadwo Asamoah - 6.5

Played just behind the Gyan and lent him good support. His movement on the edge of the box was excellent and he gave the German defence numerous headaches.

Prince Tagoe - 5.5

Had a very quiet game indeed. Never looked comfortable on the ball and let his team down with some pathetic control.

Dede Ayew - 7

Was the most energetic and dangerous of the Ghanian forwards. Was denied only by some stunning work from the German goalkeeper.

Asamoah Gyan - 6.5

Showed good awareness in the opposition penalty area and set up Ayew with some superb lay-offs.

Subs

Sully Muntari - 5

Came on with a big reputation but did not do anything to enhance it.

Dominic Adiyiah - n.a

Matthew Amoah - n.a
