", #USA v #POR live with @KidWeil http://t.co/gNl3Fs7VyP (needs more of this, via @nick_pants) pic.twitter.com/k14UXSwtVf. Bradley finds his touch for the first time in this World Cup to float a perfect ball down the channel for Demspey to run onto, And the forward forces Beto into a save with his legs from a narrow angle. Clint Dempsey will be after suffering a broken nose last match. Or am I just biased because he looks like the awful kind of American who might play hackesack and listen to the Dave Matthews Band? See you next time. The Portuguese are hobbled, but they should be favorites if Cristiano Ronaldo is genuinely fit. Perhaps the most high-profile game in the opening days of the tournament is a rematch between 2010 finalists Spain and the Netherlands. 90 mins +4: More effective hold up play from Wondolowski and Yedlin. It’s definitely the sort of thing I’d drop in a DJ set – not the whole thing, just 30 seconds or so - because you feel it’s the music of the people. 58 mins: The USA are getting a lot of encouragement down the right flank with the runs of Johnson and a combination of Ronaldo's disinclination to defend and Veloso's lack of pace as makeshift full back. And it is Zusi who will help the U.S. combat the Portugal attack. The United States men’s soccer team tweeted out a photo of the team’s starting lineup for today’s match: #USMNT lineup: Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley; Beckerman, Jones; Bedoya, Bradley, Zusi; Dempsey (c) pic.twitter.com/Jm1BFMtIMw. It's not all bad for the United States, though. Meireles was definitely holding him down, and it looks like he may have just pushed his arm back as he attempted to get up.But it’s really one of those Rorschach test-type events. That's the latter's final action as he's subbed out for Varela. It's still deep in US territory though and Eder gets turned on the corner of the box and hits a low shot just wide of Howard's near post. @kidweil Rest assured every US football fan is heavy a mini heart attack every time Portugal gets the ball. Be sure to stay tuned to FanSided.com throughout the next few weeks for the latest news and results from the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. He pulls the ball across goal where the lurking Dempsey is there to improvise a move to bundle the ball into the net off his chest! They can't keep the ball right now. Jan. 31, 2014 vs. Canada at Frisco, Texas: 1-0 W Solo Krieger Sauerbrunn Engen (Rampone, 77) Cox O'Reilly Brian Holiday Rapinoe (Rodriguez, 88) Leroux-1 Wambach (c) (Press, 74) Feb. 8, 2014 vs. Russia The only downside is it's broadcasted in Spanish. I know exactly how hot the players must be because it's virtually the same temperature and dew point here in the middle of Illinois. #USAvsPOR pic.twitter.com/omTM4UDjde. Check our television listings guide here. Proof that you're better off with @GdnUSsports, no? I'm off for my mandatory water break. The fast but raw Seattle defender will combine with Johnson down that flank — may be an attacking as much as a defensive move, and indeed he tucks in in front of Johnson. USA in white about to kick off. But now he finds a lovely ball to the back post from wide right and the USA are relieved to see an offside flag as Meireles slides in. 18 mins: Better from the US. Not a highlight reel free kick. Many thanks to the millions of people who subsequently wrote in with barely suppressed giggles to explain what “La Petite Mort” was. Surprisingly, James isn't bothered by that possibility. USA resume in possession and are on the attack when a Beto punch catches out Beckerman and Portugal spring forward... @KidWeil I'm not sure I've ever seen a worse performance immediately after scoring than nani tonight. There's no way to describe what it was like in the stadium when Clint Dempsey scored giving the Americans a 2-1 lead. As it was he swung, the ball spun off his boot and dropped perfectly for Nani. On that note, an email from Adrian Fusell: "Checking in from a packed Banter bar in Williamsburg! Zusi nudges the ball to Dempsey and we're underway in Manaus. Even a win still leaves them with a resurgent Ghana to face in the final group game. It also gives the U.S. a greater chance at keeping possession – something it failed to do against Ghana. The USA could qualify for the knockout stages with a game to spare if they can defeat troubled Portugal in Manaus. At an estimated cost of a whopping USD 14 billion, the 2014 FIFA World Cup was by far the most expensive World Cup tournament ever. 14 mins: Dempsey takes the free kick, and it's a decent enough one — just over the bar though, and Beto looked like he had it covered. Is this fervour behind #usmnt a consequence of growing popularity of football or national desire for success? Your vote is your voice! For Portugal, Pepe is out with a red card and Fabio Coentrao, Hugo Almeida and Rui Patricio could all miss Sunday's match due to injuries. Zusi makes sense because the formation, tactics, and game plan for Ghana don’t apply to Portugal. @GdnUSsports @GuardianUS @KidWeil as tens and hundreds of Americans change the channel. Portugal deeply relieved of course, but Bento, on the sideline, barely broke a smile. Group C winner vs. Group D second place, 4 p.m. Group B winner vs. Group A second place, Noon. USA 1-1 Portugal. Golazo! Now they have the ball again and are trying to settle into possession and make the USA work to retrieve it in the heat. Portugal have a little possession now, and early on it looks as if Ronaldo is roaming around the middle to confound the US markers early on. replace Altidore with midfielder Graham Zusi. © 2020 Guardian News & Media Limited or its affiliated companies. The United States could seal an early qualification into the knockout stages of the World Cup if they can defeat Portugal. Now he's...is that a bandana? #worldcup #USA https://t.co/SOhF3VZ2CT. Meanwhile Ronaldo pops up in space again to try and find space behind the US defense on a through ball, but his timing's off and he's offside.
