    If USA beats Germany, Portugal beat USA and Ghana, Germany will be out of the tournament.

    Am I underestimating the German national team or it is football and it could very much happen?

    Well atleast the Dutch team made it through to the elimination round.

    Doesn't seem very likely for Germany to lose against the USA, but of course anything can happen.

    Yes, I was surprised. When I first started watching it on the Univision feed, Portugal seemed much more in control of the situation. I also saw a guy in the stands dressed as Teddy Roosevelt for some reason.

    I didn't realize these things could end in ties. American sports usually just go into overtime, or can even last forever.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I was impressed. I went into the game ready to support Portugal, but the positive attitude of the USA team made me a fan. I liked how they turned around from that rather unfortunate first goal. Most sides would let their heads drop with something like that and would sulk through the next 30 minutes.

    I've been impressed overall with some of the enthusiasm the 'lesser' football nations have shown in their play. They've made some of the top sides look like lazy, arrogant prima donnas ripe for the picking.

    World Cup has two stages:
    - Group Stage
    - Knockout stage

    These were not the knockout stage, but the group stage, so it results in only determining points. Win = 3 pts, tie = 1 pt, and loss = 0 pt. So, ties are accepted. Now, the knockout stage will start - June 28th. Here, ties are not accepted. If ties happen, they will go into overtime, and even if that fails to break a tie, then there's shootouts.
