Turns out, the third time was the charm for the United States.

John Anthony Brooks scored the game winning goal in the 86th minute as the U.S. defeated Ghana 2-1 in their Group G opener. Clint Dempsey gave the United States the lead just 34 seconds into the game before Andre Ayew equalized in the 82nd minute for the Black Stars before Brooks' dramatic winner for the USMNT.
