    Sad to see the last seconds goal by Portugal.
    At least I was the only contender who picked a tie.

    Rascoe is making a move in the standings. LOL at Rascoe picking every game to end up 1-0.

    The key word there was "contender."

    I didn't know who that was. I figured it was Drath. Interesting strategy. Kinda like never picking ties.

    I'm surprised Canada is still undefeated.

    It figures on that last second goal against USA.

    They need to hope Portugal edges or ties Ghana because I believe it's doubtful the USA will tie or beat powerful Germany. If they get in all the power to them but if they miss out they've only themselves to blame.

    If we play the way we did against Portugal, then I like our chances for the win.
    If we play the way we did against Ghana...then we need some help to get in...

    The problem with the Portugal game, even though the USA played better, was that the Portuguese weren't at full strength and we still couldn't get them.

    Time for a prediction for USA -vs- Germany

    1. The Germans have an extra day of rest.
    2. The US played their last location in a hotter, more humid locale than did Germany.
    3. The US had to travel much farther to meet the Germans in this final group match.
    4. Germany loves to run their opponents to the point of exhaustion.
    5. The US coach will start the same crew as last game...even though fresh legs may serve him better.
    6. The German crew are perennial winners, and this is their best team in a long time.

    GERMANY 3 - USA 2

    Sounds like you have been reading the Klinsmann whining about preferential treatment to Germany...

    2-0 Germany. :crying:

    Our hope is Portugal. Just a few damned seconds and we had it.

    Portugal won't make up that -4 differential even if they win. :cheerleader:
    But if we lose to Germany by more than one goal and if Ghana wins even by one then we go home. :angrysoapbox:

    I just have a really bad feeling on this. :help2:
