Question: How will the U.S. do in group play; can they advance?
Chris: If they can get solid defensive performances, along with an offensive line spearheaded by Bradley, Dempsey and Altidore, then I think we can advance. A win against Ghana is crucial, and something I think we are capable of. We have some history against Portugal, but it won’t be an easy task. Germany is the biggest question mark given their overall quality. The USMNT can advance. I think a win over Ghana puts a lot of nerves to bed (and vanquishes the ghosts of World Cup pasts); we’ve had some success against Portugal and Germany. Though the road may seem weary, I think the USMNT will advance to the knockout round.
Question: Who is going to lift the World Cup trophy on July 13?
Chris: Between Germany, Spain, and Brazil, I think Germany lift the World Cup in Rio on July 13.
In the days leading up to the World Cup, though, I think what if … what if we make a run, a bit of luck on our side, how great it would be to see the USMNT … well, I’m not gonna say it!
Thanks Chris, great work!
