    Yup, I'm rolling with Brazil, Argy or Uruguay on this one.

    Yes. Group B with Spain, Netherlands, Chile, and Australia is also considered a group of death. I believe that the US group is tougher because all 4 teams have a chance at making the last 16. In Group B, only Spain, Netherlands, and Chile have a legitimate chance at the last 16, in my opinion.

    How do you guys believe the Americans will fare in the "group of death?" Any chance we can win a match?

    They could win, at the most, two matches, but I think the most realistic expectation would be a win, a draw and a loss, meaning 4 points total. Which may be enough to advance. But we always have trouble with Ghana, who is the weakest team we will face. Portugal is a highly rated team with the best player in the world and Germany is one of the three best teams in the tournament. It's going to be hard.

    Nice analysis; agree about Ghana. IIRC, in the 2010 World Cup the US played Ghana in the match following pool play and lost, no? I think finally beating them is a must to advance. Portugal will probably kick our butts. I'd like to say we have a shot against Germany, but we'll see. I think the US defeated them this year? But several of their star players were hurt, I believe. I guess you never know... anything could happen.

    As time goes on, I like our chances to advance a lit bit better.

    Ghana is aging a bit and several of their best players will be 30+ when the tournament begins. I also think Essien is not nearly the same player he was in 2010. Gyan seems to have lost something as well.

    Portugal seems very much a one man team. Granted, their one player is the best player in the world, but Portugal also have a reputation for flopping when the eyes of the world are upon them.

    I harbor no illusion about Die Mannschaft. If we need a result in the final group stage match, forget it.
