United States coach Bob Bradley is bemoaning the fact that the Americans were unable to 'get the job done' against Ghana, eventually being bundled out of the tournament in extra-time.
Bradley identified Black Stars' strike Asamoah Gyan as the difference between the two sides.
"Gyan caused us trouble and got the winner," Bradley told Eurosport post-match. "Physically, he is a real handful, and at the end of the day, that's the area that took care of things.
"At the moment, it is a stinging, tough defeat."
Bradley added: "We knew that Ghana was a good team yet tonight, we didn't get the job done." he concluded.
Ghana advance to the quarter-finals, where they will take on Uruguay.
