June 22, 2014 (San Diego) In what was a somewhat flat game, the two teams left the game with a point each. Nani scored for Portugal in minute five of the first half, and then started mostly playing a defensive game.
The US tied the game in Minute 64 with Germaine Jones. Then the game devolved into probes and counter probes until the United States scored on minute 81 with Dempsey. It looked like the US national team was about to take the win and the three points (and advancing to the next phase). At the last possible second Varela scored the equalizer.
The US and Germany are leading Group G at this point and will meet on Thursday. Mathematically every body is still alive. The game on Thursday will likely determine what happens with the American Squad. Regardless, this team is doing fairly well given the group they ended in
