Group G always has been one to watch, full of upsets and mounting anticipation, it’s no wonder why it’s been named the “Group of Death.”

Reversing roles, the odds are in favor of the US, despite the injuries the two strikers suffered in the first game, as they take on Portugal.(If you missed last night’s game, Clint Dempsey suffered a broken nose but should be okay to play round two, but the return of of Jozy Altidore is grim after pulling his left hamstring.)
