Germany beat Ghana 1-0 after a second-half goal from Mesut Oezil to win Group D and set up a second-round World Cup clash with traditional rival England.

Ghana also advanced despite Wednesday's loss at Soccer City and became the first African team to make the round of 16 at the first World Cup held on the continent.

Germany won the group with six points and Ghana was second with four, going through on goal difference thanks to Australia's 2-1 victory over Serbia in the other match.
