Despite losing to Germany 1-0, the United States did what everyone said they couldn’t do and advanced out of the Group of Death. Against all odds, the combination of beating Ghana, tying(and almost beating) Portugal, Germany spanking Portugal 5-0 to give a massive goal differential, and Portugal holding off Ghana from dethroning USA from that 2 spot got America through. It was definitely a handful of things to happen, but all that matters is we are moving to the next stage regardless of how we got there.
Next up is Belgium, a top 10 ranked team in the World, made up mostly of young studs with a lot of pace. It will be a tough match but as all Americans say…. I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!!! I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!!! For a preview, check out the CBS news website. Kickoff is at 3 pm on ESPN.
