USA were made to work overtime before earning a come-from-behind 1-1 draw against Ghana to ensure top spot in Group C of the ongoing Women World Cup. It was a hard-fought match with limited goal scoring opportunities at either end in a blustery Sir John Guise Stadium in Port Moresby. USA commenced the day in top spot and needed only a draw to guarantee progression, but a point would have left the door open for France or New Zealand to leapfrog them at the summit. As it panned out, France’s 2-0 win saw the pair level at the top on points and goals only for USA to finish as group-winners on  Fair Play criteria, having picked up one fewer yellow card. The goal scoring was compacted into two first-half minutes with Ghana breaking the deadlock on 20 minutes. Ernestina Abambila p
