COrrect, that was not an all inclusive list, just the one that came to my mind at the time of the post
Yeah, but not to worry, even if USA loses with Germany they still qualified to the next round. Portugal has -4 GD
Of course that would happen. Since they scored the second goal they played like they already won. Bit them in the ass too.

all the pieces are in USA favor
Still they let up and shouldn't have. Hopefully they both move on and this doesn't bite them and they learn from it too.
You're dismissing Ghana huh?
Takeaways from yesterday's 2-2 draw with Portugal.
The good: USMNT didn't panic after Portugal scored in the 5th minute. They continued to put together good short passes and retained possession, breaking down Portugal's defense on more than one occasion and taking advantage of their weakness at left back. Klinsmann has effectively trained the players in what makes a well-played offense. Bradley, Johnson, Jones and of course Dempsey are proven internationals.
The bad: Inexperience in the box resulted in a bad clearance. This comes from lack of confidence in foot skills--highly useful on offense but essential at the back. In the best leagues you see defenders routinely lofting long clearing balls after successful challenges; USMNT didn't do that. Lacking in skill or in coaching? I would propose the former.
Now: They've survived the encounter with The Best Player in the World. Now they have to mark tightly against Germany and play the possession game they showed they could play Sunday.
not dismissing it, but assuming USA losses by one goal Ghana has to score at least 4 to win. that is a though one

I'm going for Lionel Messi as the best. C. Ronaldo is interesting, to say the least. His assist in the last 30 seconds was a beautiful piece. Looking forward to Thursday!
That's off I think. Ghana's goal differential is -1 and USA is +1. So they'd have to win by two and USA lose by one.
It's Portugal that's way back.
That dumb Uruguay player should be suspended for the max 2 years. Three strikes you are out.
If it is determined that Suarez definitely bit, then yes, he should be gone for at least the rest of this tournament.
Prediction: They'll ask the referee, who didn't send off Suarez. They'll ask the victim, who claimed he was bitten by Suarez. But frankly, he needs to prove that it's a fresh bite mark. For all we know, it could have been delivered under, shall we say, other circumstances.
you are correct, I was referring to Portugal
But assuming USA ties the game, Ghana still has to win by 2. USA losing by one means that Ghana can win by one and make it to the next round. It will be an interesting group to keep an eye on
Saurez is suspended immediately from 9 official matches and four months from any soccer activity. So Suarez will be absent from Uruguay's next game against Colombia
Portugal scoring goal is helping the US. So far looks very promising for the US

Oh, man, that bites!
I just watched a slow motion replay of the bite and to me there is no question that it was intentional.
Kinda hard to see how one could unintentionally bite another! Except in a certain situation that often occurs in bedrooms.....
