    Actually the us is in great shape to advance, even with a loss. They just can't afford to get blown out.

      Here's another analogy. Playing complete defense to protect a 1 goal lead in soccer is like playing prevent defense at the end of an NFL game. There already have been a handful of comeback wins in this tournament. Mexico got their goal and kept pouring it on Croatia, easily winning the game and advancing. David Diehl is probably on suicide watch now. lol

        Wouldn't call playing Germany "great shape". Germany is looking to win that game and Ghana is playing injury plagued team on an extra day of rest. Don't let the hype fool you, this isn't great shape at all. That last min header could have sealed their fate.

                    Yes I made mention of the NFL prevent defense earlier in this thread. It only prevents winning. Same as using a slow down tactic in basketball trying to use the whole shot clock to run time down. Usually results in turnovers and the other team getting back in the game. Also mentioned how the rangers played different with the two goal leads against the kings trying to kill clock and keep dumping the puck all the way down the ice instead of being aggressive and trying to get more goals. USA fell prey to this same fate. In this case all they had to do was play kept away for just a little while and they would of won
                    Football has been very, very good to us.
                    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                    4-New York Giants!!!
                    5-NE
                    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                        Everyone is talking about it now, although it's too late for Italy unfortunately.
                        Suarez will likely get a hefty suspension and a fine.
                        I honestly think he should be suspended for the rest of the world cup.
