This game hurt in the gut of Americans everywhere….. 😦
Going into the game needed at least a tie to further our chances of advancing out of the group, and to do it against a top 5 team in the world is a tall task. Looking that we were going to actually BEAT this team…. Ronaldo showed off his heroics once again and hit a beautiful cross for the game tying header. I was quiet, not believing my eyes for hours. I could not believe that just happened. I for sure thought we had it.
On to the next one though, we are going to have to show up against Germany and play well. The beauty of at least tying Portugal and beating Ghana is that with our goal differential even if we lose to Germany, we still have a good chance of making it through.
There is a good article by the New York Times covering the game.
