World Cup highlights and match report: Germany 2-2 Ghana
Ghana kept their World Cup hopes alive by denying Germany in Fortaleza in a 2-2 draw that saw Miroslav Klose become the joint leading World Cup goalscorer.
When Mario Gotze put Germany in front early in the second half, it looked like Joachim Low's men were set for a second straight win after defeating Portugal 4-0 in their opening fixture, but Ghana responded bravely.
Andre Ayew headed them level before Asamoah Gyan completed a sensational turnaround.
It was Germany's turn to respond, and they did so impressively, Klose netting his 15th goal in World Cup finals with his first touch of the tournament. The historic goal proved enough to earn Germany a point.
Germany face the USA in their final group game still needing a positive result to reach the last 16, while Ghana need to beat Portugal to make it through.
Knowing their World Cup future depended on it, they attacked Germany and succeeded in levelling the match after just three minutes.
A sweeping cross from the right was met by the committed Ayew, who beat German substitute Shkodran Mustafi in the air and guided the ball beyond the reach of Neuer.
Ghana continued to push men forwards, catching Germany somewhat by surprise, and took a deserved lead in the 63rd minute.
AC Milan midfielder Muntari bisected the Germany defence with a killer pass into the path of Gyan, who raced through and provided a composed finish into the far corner of Neuer's goal.
Germany were forced to chase the game, and sent on Klose to do so. The effect was immediate: in the 71st minute, the front man stretched to ensure Benedikt Howedes' goalbound header found the back of the net.
It was the 15th World Cup goal for Klose, taking him level with Brazil's Ronaldo in the all-time World Cup scoring charts and giving him a record-breaking 70th strike for his country.
It was also enough to earn Germany a point, despite some near misses at both ends late on.
