WATCH John Brooks’ Late Goal To Help USA Defeat Ghana [VIDEO]
USMNT defender John Brooks scored a goal late in the second half to help the USA beat Ghana 2-1 in the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
“It’s John Brooks! It’s John Brooks for the USA! Have they stolen it???” announced ESPN commentator Ian Darke after the ball went into the back of the net from a corner that was headed in by Brooks.
The Berlin-born defender is one of five German-American players that are on Klinsmann’s 23-man US squad. He signed for Hertha, his hometown club as a teenager and reached the reserve team in 2011 before getting being promoted to the first team a year later.
Among the clubs said to be vying for Brooks services are Aston Villa, Stoke City, Everton, West Ham and Newcastle. According to the Sky Sports report the American International is also being chased by multiple Bundesliga and Ligue Un clubs.
