  1. Poor start by the US so far, but Ghana doesn’t look much better against Portugal. Still 0-0 in both games.

  2. Portugal being up at the half is good news for USA & Germany in the event that one goes behind in their game (in terms of progressing from the group)

  3. We got lucky the first ten minutes. Men versus boys and they could have scored a couple. We played them pretty even for the rest of the half.

  4. Getting tense for USA players/supporters. If Ghana scores another goal & USA doesn’t score a goal, they would have gone from nearly progressing into RO16 to flying back home…

  5. Wow, despite a terrible first 15 mins, they really turned it around and played pretty well. So close at the end to get the equalizer! Oh well we are through, I am shocked! Really good job by Klinsmann and this team.

  6. “I believe that we can … lose but in a way, still win since we advance to the Round of 16”

    Not as catchy as the original line, but it accurately describes what happened today. Enjoy the moment USA supporters, you advanced further than England – that very sentence in football terms is strange to say!

  7. Gaffer, any idea if there’s an outside watching party of Tuesdays game in Denver? Maybe something with the Rapids?
