    You have to click on the box at the top that says "Round of 16."

    30 minutes of overtime (no sudden death/"golden goal"). If still tied, penalty kicks.

    I think it is pretty impressive that the USA survived the " group of death". Is anyone expecting them to beat Belgium. I think they could if they played thrir best game yet but I don't think they will do that. Tiebreakers (the shoot out) suck, IMO.

    Well, when you have 8 groups and 3 teams from one group are ranked in the top 13 (Germany #2, Portugal #4, USA #13), that is a pretty tough group. Ghana was no slouch either.

    That's the scored I predicted. Wish I was wrong.

    Great effort from the USA. They represented our country well. I am very proud of this team.

    All of the group winners won their Round of 16 match. Rascoe and I both went 8-0 that round. I needed that correct score in the USA to edge ahead of him in the standings.

    Right now, I'm 455th in the world rankings out of more than 360,000 people. That puts me ahead of 99.9% of the people playing.

    Rascoe is in 1507th place, which puts him ahead of 99.6% of the world.
