Kick-Off: 20:30 Local (12:30 BST) Assistant referees: Philip Sharp (England) Ali Al Traifi (Saudi Arabia) Fourth official: Mark Shield (Australia) Man of the Match: Claudio Reyna (United States) Germany's progress through the World Cup continued with a fortunate win over a courageous USA team. The USA dominated large chunks of the first-half and Oliver Kahn pulled off a series of world-class saves to keep his team on level terms. Michael Ballack then scored the only goal of the game against the run of play late in the first half - and his team held on to secure their place in the last four. The USA had enjoyed a superb tournament and can go home proud of their achievements, even if their progress had gone largely unnoticed in the States.
