1. Clint Dempsey (Deuce) got things started early with a brilliant goal just 30 seconds in. Pure class.
2. American nemesis Asamoah Gyan played a nifty back heel to Andre Ayew, who drilled it with the outside of his left foot in the 82nd minute to tie things up.
3. Substitute defender and unexpected glory-taker John Brooks (just 21 years young) had a perfectly timed header off a corner from Graham Zusi to give the US the win in the 86th minute and became the first sub to ever score a goal in the World Cup for America.
