At least this US team seems to be much better than any other US team from the past four cups.
Just be glad your country actually qualifies for the World Cup, Americans and Australian. Group of Death > no group at all.
Yeah it's a rough group but this is a better squad than what we've had in a few years now. We eventually have to beat Ghana, so might as well be this time around. Portugal is a good team but we can beat them. They have Ronaldo but the rest of their team is pretty average.
I feel bad for the USA They won't even make it out of the group.. What a terrible draw for them haha.
Yeah, that is going to be a horrible one for you guys.
How do you even know?
.... and why do you keep up with it?
Personally, I think everyone is overreacting to this group.
Everyone hears the name "Germany" and freaks out, but Germany isn't the power they've been in the past. I'd much rather be in this group than any group with Spain or Brazil.
That #2 ranking looks great and intimidating on paper- but I don't give a sh** about Germany. Mostly because I think they beat Ghana and Portugal- so the game vs us won't mean much for them.
And Ronaldo has been my favorite player for years, but Portugal isn't a world-beater, either. If you can keep Ronaldo from scoring, you've got a solid chance of beating them.
Ghana isn't that good. Simply put. We should beat them game 1. If not- that's on us, but that should be a win.
The US has a history of playing better against better opponents. Combine that with how this team is better than any we've ever had, and I don't think our chances are so bad.
Try actually going to the caribbean....NICE. Planning a trip to St. Lucia now for spring break. Teaching is fun. LOL
Ghana is going to be a tougher opponent than Portugal. Portugal is overrated. Ronaldo is an arrogant "me-first" player thay can be made pretty much ineffctive during a game if you cover him tightly and tackle him hard. He is a *****.
A "me first" player that is arguably the best in the world.
Not exactly easy to shut down, considering no one can.
