      Not the same thing as San Zusi in Mexico. We EARNED our ticket. It was not a gift from CR7 or anyone else.

        We would have advanced with a tie in their game as well.

        I understand that, but 15 minutes of Ghana needing one to knock us out might have killed me, so I do thank Cristiano just in case.

    Actually Gyan’s goal tied Portugal and the US would have advanced with 4 points to ghana and portugal’s 2. Ghana would have had to win by 2 goals (if the use lost by 1) to beat the US on goal difference. I am not sure if the next tie-breaker is head-to-head or goals scored. If it is the former the US would have advanced if it is the latter, ghana would have, But ghana never led the US in the standings for even a second.

    I can already hear the nattering nabobs of negativity saying that we “needed help” to advance, and we only got through because of CR7 injury, etc. We are through. In a big tournament over several weeks, you do need some good fortune.
    Now ANYTHING can happen, and we are one of the crowd favorites. Great job USMNT and JK. Keep it up.

      It is no different then what happened in 2002. Hopefully we can keep going.

    As someone else from the US said,”It’s the group of death because we’re in it”.

    Portugal and CR7 still helped us out once Ghana got a goal. To all the trolls and haters… hahaha we’re through.

      It would have made for a scary ending without them, but by limiting damage from Germany, we didn’t need either of Portugal’s goals. If Ghana had won 1-0, we still would have taken 2nd.

      Regardless, the standings are the result of of all three matches. Our team got it done.

    Portugal out early again. Overrated, again. Crazy talent, just an average team tho imo

      Because they lack the “team” element.

      Out early again? Hmm, interesting: Last time they failed to make it out of the groups was 2002…Since then 2004- Final, 2006- Semifinals, 2008- Quarterfinals, 2010- rnd of 16 loss to eventual winners Spain on PK’s.
