Gotze: I want to score against Ghana

Germany's Mario Gotze is desperate to score his first World Cup goal when they face Ghana on Saturday.

The Bayern Munich player had a good chance in the early stages of his side's 4-0 thrashing of Portugal on Monday but was unable to convert.

He then watched on as Thomas Muller netted a hat-trick, while Mats Hummels also scored in their first game of the tournament.

Gotze is hungry to get off the mark against Ghana - who lost their opener 2-1 to the United States - but acknowledged they will be tough to beat given their predicament.

"I had one good chance to score a goal [against Portugal]," Gotze told Kicker.

"I want to score against Ghana now. It won't be easy because the Ghanaians are under pressure and need to win.

"It's already a playoff for them but we want the three points."
