The result left Ghana with two points after three games while the Americans went top of Group C with five points.
France joined the Americans in the next round after beating New Zealand 2-0 in the other group clash played concurrently.
While France play Germany in the quarter final on Friday, USA will play Mexico for a place in the semi-final.
