Check out World Cup TV listings for USA vs Germany and Portugal vs Ghana as well as confirmed line-ups for these games. Group G’s scenario is complex. Here’s a breakdown of it.
Portugal are without a win just as Ballon d’Or titleholder Cristiano Ronaldo is without a goal at the 2014 World Cup. After getting off to their worst start ever by losing 4-0 to Germany, the Seleccão also failed to complete their must-win task against the United States.
They managed to take a point though thanks to Varela’s miraculous 95th minute header which made justice... Read the rest of the article »

Following a 2-2 draw against Ghana, Germany go into the final match day of the group phase, not assured of a Round of 16 berth.
The Germans like to be entertained; they like drama. Very rarely does Germany ever go through a group stage campaign in a World Cup with minimum fuss. Take for example their encounter against Ghana yesterday. Joachim Löw put out the exact same lineup as the first match, one he should have known would struggle against the physical power of the opponents.
The first half gave signs that... Read the rest of the article »

Germany are contemplating victory to secure qualification into the Round of 16. Fresh from their epic 4-0 trouncing of Euro 2012 semi-finalists Portugal, the DFB Eleven's attention has turned to the game against the Black Stars.

The Germans were definitely impressive against Portugal; however, they will be asked one or two more questions by Ghana in their second match in Group G.
When Germany played Ghana in the World Cup in 2010, the scenario was completely different. Serbia had beaten Germany in the second round of group games; Ghana was the leader going into the final day. The game was not particularly exciting, especially in the absence of the suspended Miroslav Klose. Neither team seemed ready to break the deadlock.
And then, Mesut Özil... Read the rest of the article »
Germany is set to face a tough test against a physical but talented Ghana side.
Germany thrashed Portugal, 4-0, in a game in which Cristiano Ronaldo, albeit not fully fit, managed to do very little. The Germans, while highly effective, were not exceptional on the day. Thomas Muller scored three goals; however, Muller was allowed the time and space to do so. On previous occasions, for Bayern, the lanky attacker has often failed to find his range when faced with opposition... Read the rest of the article »
