Natal: Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah denied his players' performance in a 2-1 defeat to Group G rivals the United States was caused by player unrest but admitted the Black Stars are still awaiting full payment of bonuses.

Ghana were stunned after just 30 seconds when Clint Dempsey finished off a great move down the left by weaving through the Africans' defence to beat Adam Kwarasey at the keeper's far post.

Andre Ayew struck an 82nd minute equaliser for the Black Stars but only four minutes later second-half substitute John Brooks headed a late corner through the defence and past Kwarasey to send the huge USA support at Estadio das Dunas wild.
