World Cup Draw Benefits U.S.
By Lauren Screeden | email@example.com
The U.S. caught a major break in the World Cup Saturday without even taking the field. Germany and Ghana drew 2-2 in a thrilling World Cup clash. Germany's Miroslav Klose scored his fifteenth World Cup goal to tie the game 2-2. Klose is now tied with Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo for the most goals scored in World Cup history. Since the game ended in a draw, the U.S. has even more incentive to play well Sunday. If the U.S. beats Portugal Sunday, they will automatically advance to the round of 16. Germany leads Group G with four points and the U.S. has three points. If the U.S. loses to Portugal, their fate will be determined Thursday in the U.S. vs. Germany matchup. The top two teams move on. Portugal has zero points after losing to Germany 0-4 earlier this week. The U.S. will look to shut down Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal Sunday at 5pm CT.
