    I’m glad we advanced, but I hate backing into the next round. A brutal tie against Portugal and being utterly dominated by Germany is very disconcerting.

      I don’t see it that way at all. We absolutely had to win against Ghana, and we did. The tie against Portugal was an unfortunate result – we clearly outplayed them. Against Germany, we were coming out of Manaus on three days’ rest, and our goal was to keep the game close. We did that. We made it out of the toughest group in the tournament. Doesn’t matter how.

        good points, I think many felt FIFA had it in for us when we saw what our grouping was, definitely was a group of death. We advanced which is all that matters.
