Group Match

Group G

Travel to USA USA vs Travel to Germany Germany in Recife.

Match Preview

In the final Group G matches, USA take on Germany in Recife while Portugal play Ghana in Brasilia.

Germany have beaten USA in Paris (2:0) at France 1998 and in the Ulsan quarter-final (1:0) at Korea-Japan 2002.

The Match

A draw would be enough for both teams to progress.

It's hard to say that either team would go into the game settling for a draw but at least there are no penalties at the end of it.

Substitution Nothing doing in the first half, so Miroslav Klose came on for Lukas Podolski after the break; with a chance to break the all-time World Cup Finals goalscoring record that he currently shares with Ronaldo.

Goalscorers 0:1
The deadlock was finally broken in the 55th minute, when Thomas Muller hammered the ball back past Tim Howard; after the American goalkeeper failed to hold the ball.

At times in the second-half, it seemed USA were happy to hold out for damage limitation.

When Cristiano Ronaldo made it advantage Portugal, with ten minutes still to play in Brasilia, USA looked in a comfortable position.

USA made a last-minute attack to excite the crowd; Philipp Lahm just getting back in time to make the block.
