What a finish from Muller.

This boy will destroy the world cup goal scoring record.

Ghana ties it up. Portugal needs to score the next goal, if there is one.

Is USA still in a good position? Down by one goal, and Ghana-Portugal tied at 1-1.

If Ghana or Germany scores again the US is in big trouble. US needs to score, or Portugal needs to score to take the pressure off. If everything ends the way it is now though, the US advances.

If Ghana score again, they'll have to take something to ease their nerves a bit.

Bottom line is the US can just about assure their survival if they can put 1 in the net.

Cinderella stories don't win World Cups. Italy was an outstanding defensive team when they won in 2006.

The US team is a good story and played well in a death group but I have to see how the bracket plays out.

Freaking ball. Anyway, if the results hold up, USA should still advance. Portugal is up 2-1, which is good for us.

Congratulations guy.

I'll be honest with you, when the draw was first made, I thought Ghana would edge it between you, but it would've been tight, but I thought Portugal and Germany would both beat you with little fuss, but, you're there when some of world football's big names are heading to various airports.

Well done.

The likely opponent is Belgium. I'd argue they're a better side than Portugal right now Very tough test.

Belgium are probably in the top 3 sides in Europe right now, you're right, it's gonna be a tough ask.

Wasn't a very exciting game, but they're through and all that matters. Hopefully by the time they play Belgium they can get over the Amazon hangover and Michael Bradley can finally show the **** up. He's been terribad.

Indeed, but the US boys will still have to play the game of their lives to proceed.

A Portugal-esque performance will give them a fighting chance, but if the Belgians 'click', it's gonna be a long night for the US team.

The bars down here in the Wall St. area were all PACKED. I'm right next to Stout II and they stopped letting people in.

When the game ended, thousands of drunks just poured into the streets....horns honking, people screaming; pretty awesome.

We didn't look great but the quality of our opponents in the group stage will definitely help us going forward. Hopefully we get Altidore back for next game.
