s visit Memphis on Tuesday night. The 6-foot-11

NATAL, Brazil -- Clint Dempsey scored in the first minute and rookie substitute John Brooks scored a late game winner as the U. Nike Air Vapormax Comme Des Garçons.S. defeated Ghana 2-1 Monday in the World Cup opener for both. The victory gave the Americans a measure of revenge against the tiny West African county that knocked them out of the previous two World Cups and put the U.S. and Germany on top of the Group G, with Ghana and Portugal at the bottom. Dempseys goal came on a low shot just 32 seconds into the match. Ghana dominated much the rest of the game, and Andre Ayew levelled in the 82nd minute. Just four minutes later, Brooks -- a 21-year-old who came on at halftime because Matt Besler was injured -- scored off a corner from Graham Zusi. It was the first time an American sub had ever scored in the World Cup. Dempseys goal made him the first U.S. player to score in three different World Cups and was the fastest ever scored by an American in the tournament. Dempseys goal showed the kind of technical flair seldom seen from a squad that typically scores through set pieces. Brooks game winner came in the waning minutes as the Americans were desperately trying to survive waves of attacks from Ghana. DaMarcus Beasley, who became the first American to play in four World Cups, started the buildup to Dempseys goal with a pass to Jermaine Jones, who fed it to Dempsey inside the penalty area. With a nifty move to split defenders John Boye and Sulley Muntari, Dempsey sent the left-footed shot past goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey, where the ball bounced off the post and in. Already ahead after the game had barely started, the Americans looked well on their way to erasing eight years of frustration caused by Ghana. Ghana regrouped at halftime and the U.S. looked punchless on the attack after losing striker Jozy Altidore to an apparent hamstring injury in the 21st minute. Ghana applied relentless pressure on U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard and finally drew even when captain Asamoah Gyan flicked a backheel pass to Ayew, who used the outside of his left foot for a powerful shot. Ghana was still pressing for a winner Brooks delivered the header. He appeared shocked to have scored, raising his hands to his head before falling to the ground to be mobbed by his teammates. Air Max 2017 For Sale .
