Adam Kwarasey 5 - The goalkeeper looked nervous when tested and didn't get near John Brooks winning header which was fired straight down his throat.
Daniel Opare 6 - Offered plenty of support down the right side but his final delivery was not good enough and he could have been more assured defensively.
John Boye 6 - Was relatively quiet as the Ghana defence looked comfortable for much of the game but didn't defend Dempsey's early goal with any conviction.
John Mensah 6 - As with Boye, didn't have too much work to do but when called upon failed to look comfortable. A vulnerable defensive partnership for upcoming games against Germany and Portugal.
Kwadwo Asamoah 7 - One of the better performers for Ghana. Looked comfortable at the back and was a real threat going forward, and started the move that led to the goal.
Mohammed Rabiu 6 - Didn't do much wrong but could have influenced the game more from the middle of the park before being substituted.
Sulley Muntari 7 - Covered plenty of ground and made more tackles than anyone on the pitch, though made the wrong decision on a few occassions.
Andre Ayew 7 - Provided a spark from midfield and tried to create opportunities. Took his goal well with the outside of the boot after some good link-up play with Asamoah Gyan.
Jordan Ayew 6 - Didn't make enough of an impact on the game and was taken off just before the hour mark.
Christian Atsu 7 - A bright spark but went for goal more often than not when he had teammates in space. Excellent until the final third of the pitch.
Asamoah Gyan 7 - Didn't lead the line as effectively as he did four years ago but made the goal and fired more shots than anyone else.
Kevin-Prince Boateng 7 - Made an instant impact and it's a surprise he didn't start the game. Ghana looked much more threatening following his arrival to the action.
Michael Essien 5 - The former Chelsea man struggled when he came on and didn't offer his side anything in attack, whilst failing to perform well enough defensively. Not good enough from the 31-year-old.
Albert Adomah 5 - Brought on to offer Ghana a spark in attack but only had a handful of touches and couldn't get into the game.
