Fixing Damaged VE.Direct to USB Cable

I have a VE.Direct to USB adapter that unfortunately got caught in a cupboard door. The PCB inside looks ok and looks like you could solder back on the 4 USB connections. What I am wondering if anyone knows which one is which? I'll give it a try. What I think is (from left to right) is:

+5v

TX

RX

GND


Thanks for any help!

Just want to follow up on this incase anyone in the future is looking for the same answer. I can confirm it is as I suspected and to fix this I cut a USB cable ans soldered on the corresponding wires to the 4 points identified in the red box. Although it isnt pretty, it works and saved me buying another cable.
