The only scenario most people knew going into USA’s match against Portugal was if USA won, they were in, and Portugal would be packing it up.
Up until about the last five seconds of the match, it looked as though USA was going to be in the round of 16 and Portugal was heading to the airport. Unfortunately, Portugal had different plans as Varela headed in the equalizer from Ronaldo in the 95th minute.
Now a lot of people are scratching their heads, asking what the USMNT needs to do to advance. Well…here are the scenarios.
#USMNT advances with: – Win/draw vs Germany OR – Loss & POR-GHA draw OR – Loss & win tiebreaker vs POR-GHA winner
