USA will win today's match; it's the only one they have a good shot at winning, and no way does Klinsmann not have them prepared for the most important game of their tournament. Lose today and they can damn well pack up and go home. Win, and anything can happen. Maybe Ghana will stun someone else in the group. Maybe the Germany-Portugal matchup will weaken one of the two heavyweights. Either way, a win means the pressure is off and the US can play loose the rest of the tournament.

I'm gonna go 7-7-7 with my predictions today. Germany, Nigeria, America. I'll be at school for the first two, don't know if I'll actually be able to watch, but plan on sitting at home with some booze for the USA game.
 
2014-06-16 07:49:11 AM  
Hoping for good results tonight as well. May be the US game I will get to watch. Will be on the road Sunday when we play Portugal, and Germany is middle of day just after I have gotten back from the business trip. There will probably be too much work on the plate to even be able to take a couple hours to watch that game.

Still trying to figure out who to root for over the rest of the tournament. Maybe I will just hope the host team can take it home for once.

Well, if Bosnia can win....
 
2014-06-16 08:07:23 AM  
I don't believe you can win.
 
2014-06-16 08:56:01 AM  
Germany 1-1 Portugal
Iran 0-3 Nigeria
Ghana 1-2 USA
 
2014-06-16 09:08:47 AM  
Germany 2-1 Portugal
Iran 1-2 Nigeria
Ghana 0-1 USA (the sole goal will be made in the last minute of play)

HaywoodJablonski: Germany 1-1 Portugal
Iran 0-3 Nigeria
Ghana 1-2 USA


Only difference I have is 3-1 Germany
 
2014-06-16 09:53:44 AM  
I think we can, I think we can, I think we can, I think we can.

My prediction for how the US gets out of Group play:

US beats Ghana, ties Germany and Portugal
Germany ties Portugal, beats Ghana
Portugal ties Ghana.

/and the Jaguars are making the playoffs this year.

Family birthday during the USA game so I'm going to be sneaking looks on the phone all day today but might not be in the thread.
I'm torn on the game. This is one of the best conditiioned US teams and I really like the moves that Klinsmann has made. That said, we are due for a bad ref decision and the US has a big block against playing Ghana.

I think the US needs a win to move on but I"m worried they might draw 1-1. I just keep hedging on win/draw with a fear of a loss.

Sadly, the privacy of the pantsless pool party at their Praia do Forte base was compromised by two Croatian photographers, who hid in the bushes and took pictures that were published online.

Since they won me a bet last time they beat the US, I'm rooting for Ghana again here.

2014-06-16 11:04:52 AM  
I don't see how a draw with Germany is out of the question. If they have the Group locked up, maybe they would rather "allow" the US through as opposed to Portugal or Ghana possibly playing spoiler, if they were to reach the final.
 
2014-06-16 11:05:07 AM  
Ger 2 - Port 2
Iran 0 - Nigeria 4
Ghana 2 - USA 3

Would love to see germany over portugal 3-0 with lots of cards handed out. I'll take a 1-0 win for the US in the slop.

Talked to a girlfriend this morning who says the US game is in danger of being rained out?! Is this true?
 
2014-06-16 11:08:41 AM  
My predictions for today:

GER 3-1 POR
IRN 0-1 NIG
USA 2-2 GHA (you're damn right I insured this one)

I heard there was heavy rain in the area. If the ball is floating around on the pitch, it'll get cancelled.

Pretty much this, as long as most of the cards are against Portugal.

So ready for Group G play! Group of Death!!! The only thing that makes the day better, after a surprising US 2-1 win over Ghana, is that The Anteater is playing! VIVA El Anteater!

And in more Arsenal transfer news, Vermaelen is about to join United it seems. When people told Wenger they wanted to see transfer moves, I bet they didn't expect them to be sales.
 
2014-06-16 11:12:29 AM  
I'm the only one in my office wearing a US jersey.  What's wrong with these people?

Germany - Portugal: 1-1
Iran - Nigeria: 0-1
Ghana - USA: 0-1

If I wanted to see people spending 90 minutes struggling to score I'd take my single friends out to a bar.

Oh yes, and a few days ago I brought up an idea to subject all 31 non-host World Cup spots to intercontinental playoffs.

Last night I fleshed it out, figured out the teams that would be in that playoff this time out and held a draw and everything.

I wound up drawing the United States against South Korea, if you're interested. I wasn't happy about it.

You know what would be a good idea? Playing soccer in an open air stadium in the frwakkng rainforest!

Ugh the US deserves to lose every match 5-0 because of that.

"Who will the U.S. play today?"
"Ghana."

I'm predicting a US win if anyone cares. And I think they will get out of the group - in 2nd.

Aw man.....per Twitter, Padres icon and HOFer Tony Gwynn passed away.

Glad I'm off today;  can't wait to see us drop 4 on Ghana.
 
2014-06-16 11:28:50 AM  
Germany 2 - 1 Portugal

Ghana 3 - 1 USA

Nigeria is taking the second game, but I don't remember what score I predicted, so I shall not say here :P
