US loses to Germany, both advance
(RECIFE, BRAZIL) - The United States reached the knockout stage of consecutive World Cups for the first time, just not the way the Americans wanted. Germany beat the U.S. 1-0 on Thursday in soggy conditions on Thomas Muller's 55th-minute goal to win Group G, but the Americans advanced as runners-up when Portugal defeated Ghana 2-1 in a game played simultaneously in Brasilia. The Germans, three-time World Cup champions, finished with seven points, while the U.S. had four after allowing a 95th-minute goal against Portugal on Sunday in a 2-2 draw. Portugal also had four, but the Americans advanced from a so-called "Group of Death" because their goal difference was even and the Portuguese were minus-3. In the round of 16, the U.S. will face Belgium at 4 P.M. on Tuesday. Germany controlled much of the game, deservedly taking the three points to top Group G with two wins and a draw.
