Clint Dempsey and John Brooks are the Most Valued Players for the US Soccer Team. Andre Ayew receives the same honor from TPLI for Ghana.

Ayew scored the equalizer that almost placed America in jeopardy. Dempsey scored the initial goal with a rapid electric power into the ball which seared towards the center of the net.

Brooks scored a header which guaranteed an American victory in Natal, Brazil. In spite of the celebration, America must tighten its belt in the offense, defense, and take a proactive part in the match since Jurgen Klinsmann left Landon Donovan off the squad.

This has to be done as soon as possible before the match against Portugal. The weakness inherent [including Pepe's absence secondary to his head butt of German player Hummels] in the Portuguese squad must be used to America's advantage.

Only then can we say that America has crossed the threshold.
