World Cup: Germany 1, Ghana 0

Germany 1, Ghana 0

JOHANNESBURG — Germany won. Ghana lost, then won.

Mesut Oezil scored on a left-footed blast from outside the area in the 60th minute Wednesday to give Germany the victory and first place in Group D. Still, Ghana had reason to party.

Moments after the game was over, Ghana learned that Australia had defeated Serbia 2-1, which meant Ghana took second place in the group and moved on to the round of 16.

The Germans had been heavily favored to take the group, but an upset loss to Serbia left them needing a victory to be assured of advancing.

"It was a tense game. We could have made more out of our opportunities," Germany coach Joachim Loew said. "But I can't blame my young players. There was a lot of pressure."
