25661 punters turned up at Ernst Kuzorra Arena, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. Dao Bao Gia was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Davut Yulak and Uzmir Mghrawi. U-20 Deutschland decided to use a 5-2-3 set up. Starters: Kaderabek - Tessin, Görlitz, Jablowski-Hasenfuss, Daimer, Kiefinger - Vollert, Sachsen-Paule - Abraham, Bruckböck, Jungreithmayer.

U-20 Ghana had chosen a strategic 5-2-3 formation. The following players took the field: Siaw - Bobie, Osei, Manu, Addo, Acquaye - Yamoah, Adomako - Tano, Arko, Karikari.

U-20 Deutschland showed off their creative tactics. U-20 Ghana were relying on their magnificent ability to counter-attack. 7 minutes into the game, U-20 Deutschland seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to solid. 19 minutes into the game, U-20 Ghana seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a passable level of organisation. After 24 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as U-20 Deutschland found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to inadequate. After 28 minutes, Ferdinand Jungreithmayer sprinted between the opposing defenders and squared the ball, but the keeper deflected Berald Abraham's shot. U-20 Deutschland's Hans-Dieter Vollert tried to break through in the middle repeatedly, but couldn't get past the visitors' defenders. With 35 minutes played, the visitors broke through on the right after some poor defending. Ata Arko put the ball away for 0 - 1. 38 minutes into the game, U-20 Deutschland had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to weak. 39 minutes in, U-20 Ghana appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only passable. A well placed corner kick from Gabriel Bobie was followed by Louis Yamoah's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for U-20 Ghana, the score now 0 - 2. Given a free kick close to the byline, U-20 Deutschland tried a move that loyal fans may recognise from training. A pass to the side pulled the defence out of position which let Wolfgang Görlitz slip through on goal. He didn't have to break his stride, and slipped the ball past the keeper to make it 1 - 2, 43 minutes into the game. 1 - 2 was the score after the first half. U-20 Deutschland enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

Despite his frustration resulting in the smashing of a few teacups, the coach of U-20 Deutschland was able to get his message across, and raised U-20 Deutschland's organisation to passable. The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that U-20 Ghana had solid organisation. The U-20 Ghana players could smell victory in the air. Edward Tano wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Papa Boakye after 46 minutes. Ata Arko wanted to play on, but the U-20 Ghana coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 46 minutes into the game by Abdul Karim Ntim. 68 minutes in, U-20 Ghana appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only inadequate. U-20 Ghana's Minkah Adomako was shown a yellow card after 79 minutes for slicing down an opponent. The coach of U-20 Ghana was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 89 minutes, Mawuli Anokye came on for Ebo Manu. With 89 minutes played, the U-20 Deutschland coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Joakim Töpfer came on, Ferdinand Jungreithmayer had to leave the fray. The bench was restless, and with 89 minutes passed U-20 Deutschland's coach gave Augustin Offenthal the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Wolfgang Görlitz reluctantly left the field. The match ends 1 - 2. U-20 Ghana had most of the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

U-20 Deutschland's best player was Jörg Kaderabek. Ludwig Jablowski-Hasenfuss was a disappointment, however. The most dominating U-20 Ghana player was without a doubt Minkah Adomako. However, Alhassan Addo made a disastrous appearance.
