  1. Christopher Harris says:

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

  2. hoosiergunner says:

    Better after the first 10 minutes…

    Made it to half!

  3. Jeff says:

    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)

  4. Chris says:

    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.

  5. Jeff says:

    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…

  6. Adam says:

    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.

  7. Brad says:

    I was hoping for a token appearance by Julian Green. Get the horse placenta for Jozy.

  8. Jeff says:

    “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!

  9. Bo says:

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