    5 at the back for Germany?

  2. LaticsFan says:

    Germany just doesn’t look right in white shorts.

  3. Grayson says:

    2-0! Keep em pouring in Germany! USA needs all the goal diff help we can get

  4. Grayson says:

    Bye PEPE! Almost would have preferred that he’d be able to play against the US, because he can be error prone.

  5. Bruce Gottesman says:

    This is embarrassing…

  6. hoosiergunner says:

    Germans look solid… smart, controlled soccer. Fun game to watch so far.

  7. R.O says:

    Wonder if 2nd will be a slower paced game? Germany up 3-0, heat and humidity. Germany may pace the game, pick opportunities, otherwise play a possession game and make Portugal chase the game.

  8. francis says:

    Group of death suddenly not looking so deadly for USA

  9. EDub says:

    Iberiana peninsula is not having a good world cup.

  10. Grayson says:

    Now Coentrao injured, no longer rooting for bad things to happen to Portugal. Just feel bad for them now. What a nightmare start to the World Cup.

  11. Brian says:

    Portugal’s injuries and red card helps US tremendously. Portugal’s next game is the US. If the US wins today they could be in the driver’s seat.

  12. R.O says:

    Hope Hummels injury isn’t serious. As a BVB fan, don’t want to lose him. Reus already out for 3 months.

  13. Smokey Bacon says:

    Massive opportunity for USA after this result. Go go USA!
