How can the US advance to the World Cup Final Round of 16?
There are a few scenarios which could propel the US team into the Round of 16 at this year’s World Cup. The easiest of course being a win or a draw against GER today.
Short of that, team USA would also advance to the finals, for the first time since 1930, with a loss against Germany, provided that Portugal and Ghana tie today. That game also plays out at noon today.
The other option, with a loss today, would be a win by the US over the winner of the Portugal-Ghana match.
