    We need Portugal and Ghana to tie Thursday. I don't think we can pull off a win against Germany.


    Great game. Super disappointing but excellent play.

    Actually, if the USA can manage a tie with germany, they are good to go...and it could easily happen. I didnt think they had any chance against Portugal and they proved me wrong. But worst case, if they lose to germany and no tie happens between ghana and portugal, USA still has hope if the winner of ghana and portugal dont score many goals - Ideally if portugal wins 1-0 only....

    Even if usa does loose to germany, lets hope it will be a 1-0 or a 2-1... USA is still sitting pretty.

    Go germany :)

    Suarez has had game bans before. It hasn't worked. They need to ban him longer. Like forever.

    good job germany. USA sigh...you played as expected.,.,.boring and getting dominated. USA needs to step it up if they want to win against Belgium. Im very disappointed with their performance but not surprised.

    Let's take a second to recognize that ref. He was incredible.

    And US played about as well as I expected them to play without Altidore. There was never a replacement for him on the roster, so basically playing with one of our first choice forwards and then filler, I'd say we played very well. Defense was incredible, Howard was a BEAST. Germany just kept them on their toes the whole game and it flustered them. I'm impressed with the way they played and by no means disappointed.

    they had maybe 2 or 3 attacks all of 2nd half...germany has a weak defense, they usually send everyone forward and USA couldnt even counter,...germany kept the ball in USAs half almost all game, when u are down, u need to attack and not just focus on defense...u wont win a game just defending...usa is lucky to advance imo.

    We played well against Portugal and Ghana. Our defense was strong. I realize that the midfield (Bradley, who has been off all cup) and the forwards haven't been amazing, but Germany is basically playing entirely with fullbacks (which is why no one is center when there's a cross and the defense is kind of meh). IMO, the only reason we didn't score this game was because we didn't try until the last four minutes. Had they come out of the gate that strong it would've been an entirely different game.

    Let's just say that I was a little saddened in my fellow Americans for not having faith in the team..... And if we make it to the finals and maybe the semis I might dye my goatee like this. merica.jpg
