Read the context of the post. Of course I meant Portugal. And read my many posts in this thread. It's very clear how I feel about the US. I am one of the biggest soccer fans on this board.

The whole context of the paragraph was the hype about Portugal and how I am sick of them talking about this country (one I'm referring to in the previous sentences). There was absolutely zero mention of the US in my entire post. It doesn't even make sense to think I was talking about the US.

But yes, bring on Brazil and Croatia although I'm eager for 1 pm

Starting to get more optimistic as the day gets closer.

With the way Bradley is setting up people and the ability of Dempsey/Altidore/Johannsen to put the ball into the net, I think we got a chance.

US will be a surprise team in this tournament. With all the negativity about our team (many are hyping Ghana more than us - like we should just be happy to be there), we will shock some people in the soccer world.

I don't see us going beyond the quarters. However, if we get there, a lot of people would be amazed. I just have a good feeling about our team.

Yep, I got it all on my calendar. Taking off work a little early so I can see the first match!

The rest of our schedule looks like this:

6/22 Portugal 6 pm EST/3 PM PST
6/26 Germany 12 pm EST/9 AM PST

Last match of the group is an early one because all 4 teams in the group play at the same time. They do this so teams can't manipulate outcomes in their matches. Since it is likely the #2 and #3 (possibly even #1 and #4) will need points to advance, the teams will do their best since the other teams they are competing against will be playing at the same time.

Okay guys, I haven't been much of a soccer fan before, and I was traveling during most of the last World Cup. It really interests me, and I want to keep up with it more this time.

So it starts with group play that's basically a round-robin. The top 2 teams from each group advance to the tournament, which is single-elimination. Is there anything I'm missing, or something else I need to know?

Go USA!

Go USA!
4 teams in 8 groups.

Round robin. If you WIN the match you're awarded 3 points. If you draw (tie) both teams are awarded 1 point. If you lose the match you are awarded 0 points.

It is generally accepted that a minimum of 5 points must be earned in order to advance...I guess there might be some oddity to advance with 4...but again, likely scenario is 5 or more to advance.

USA is in the most difficult group with Germany (has some key players injured), Portugal (Ronaldo is a little dinged up) and Ghana (Knocked the US out of the last TWO World Cups)

Anything else just ask!

Absolutely ZERO respect for the United States. Out of 36 votes, exactly one picks the US to get out of the group. Even Ghana got more votes than us.

Honestly, I think they are idiots. I think the rest of the world is grossly underestimating this US team and will be proven wrong. I just can't believe the US is given no chance at all in this group.
