Ghana took over the Group D lead with a 1-1 draw against ten-man Australia at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenberg. Brett Holman scored first for the Aussies, pouncing on a Richard Kingson error to give the Socceroos hope. But Harry Kewell, finally fit, was sent off for a handball on the line later in the half, allowing Asamoah Gyan to score from the spot for the second time in this tournament. The rest of the game was a series of missed chances for both sides with Australia coming closest late in the second half. Kingson made up for his mistake with a double save as Ghana move to four points and the top spot in the group. Eking out a draw keeps Australia alive and the final round of games will determine every single position in Group D.
