- After, like, 10 close calls, USA players and fans are wishing that Earth would just speed up its rotation, thus increasing the rate at which seconds elapse. Tim Howard can only do so much.

-Ghana scores the equalizer on an Andre Arew in the 82nd minute. It was bound to happen with how much pressure Ghana had been applying in the second half. Clint Dempsey’s first-minute goal now seems like it occurred years ago.

- John Brooks takes the lead back in the 86th with an unbelievable header off the corner kick. Wow.
