USA Advance from Group of Death

Standard

Coach Jurgen Klinsmann Acknowledges Fans After Leading the US into the Round of 16

The US completed a remarkable achievement by advancing from the “Group of Death” at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.  A narrow 1-0 loss to Germany was enough to see the US through, since Portugal defeated Ghana 2-1.  The US and Portugal, who tied 2-2 several days ago, both finished on 4 points, but the US’s goal difference was far superior and put them into the Round of 16.

Next up for the Americans is a match against Group H winners Belgium, a popular “dark horse” pick for the tournament who have scored all their goals after the 70th minute but managed to win all three of their group stage matches.  If the US pull off the upset, they would likely face Argentina in the quarterfinals, if the favorites can see off the Swiss as expected.
