Two terrific performances by the United States has left them one point from the last sixteen and three points from a Group win. The US were terrific against Portugal, outplaying out harassing their more talented counterparts. For most of the game the US defence handled Ronaldo well and tomorrow they will face a German offence that is just as potent but with just more good players. Portugal were limited by their lack of attacking threat outside of Nani and Ronaldo. Germany have Muller, Goetze, Ozil and Kroos to go along with Podolski and Klose. More options but the US will still fancy their chances of stifling the Germans.
At the other end the Germans defensively look like they have some flaws, Clint Dempsey may be asked to run that central role on his own again but against Hummels and Mertesacker I think the US will get some joy. Jermaine Jones scored a screamer against Portugal and that type of forward movement from midfield can definetly work against Germany as shown by Ghana in their 2-2 draw with Germans. But Germany have so much talent through the center of midfield and up front I am sure they will fancy their chances against the US as well.

But in round up surely Klinsmann and the US play for a draw. On the other side Germany know a draw takes them through as Group winners. Maybe I am just too cynical but when a draw benefits both teams why do we think that the result will be something different? At 5/2 the value is there and I for one am taking it.

On a seperate side not I really hope the US does go out and go for it, I think Germany are beatable and Ghana showed the deficiencies the Germans have in defence. Either way I shall be wearing my Team US top tomorrow and shouting for my adopted country to get the W as the US soccer fans say.
