Finally, US Soccer tweeted out this info graphic of various "number ones" from the from the match against Ghana.

It was the most watched soccer match ever broadcast on ESPN, which shows how much the sport is growing as ESPN seems to break that record each time out. Clint Dempsey is the first player for the US to score in there World Cups, while John Brooks was the first sub to score for the US. As it was also the first time the United States managed to beat Ghana in three tries, one can say it was a match full of firsts.
