World Cup: Portugal scores with seconds left; ties USA 2-2



Arena Amazonia, Manaus, Brazil (WGR-550) - Just as the United States was about to punch their ticket to the round of 16 in the 2014 World Cup, Varela Varela netted in injury time to keep Portugal's qualification hopes alive, as they were able to salvage 2-2 draw Sunday evening in Brazil.

Down 1-0 for nearly 60 minutes, the U.S. rallied in the second half, as Jermaine Jones connected from outside the box to the bottom right corner of the net following a corner kick. Clint Dempsey, playing with a broken nose, then notched a go-ahead goal in the 81st minute to give the U.S. a 2-1 lead.

Nani netted the other Portugal goal.

The United States next plays Thursday at noon against Germany. A United States win OR draw automatically puts them in the round of 16.

Question
Who was in goal? Was it Miller?
06/22/2014 9:05PM
It was Miller
He's looking for a big contract in Europe.

How does this soccer thing work?
Who manages the clock and why do they keep it secret? So the ref waits for the team he has money on to score and then he ends the game. Almost as bad as the NHL.

wait another week
Will we have to wait another week to see the USA play again? Long time in between games but I guess they need to recover from all of that flopping.

No way, team USA has simply been lucky
They will be back in SoCal eating tofu and bean sprouts in a week. Whats with the bozo white guy with dreads? It is hard to take this team seriously.

Flopping
The way these guys flop around on the field after sustaining an "injury" makes NBA players blush. The way they writhe in pain you would swear their nuts were in a vice.

Grab a Capri Sun!
Hey everyboby, come on by the station and grab yourself a nice cold Capri Sun--we have plenty left over in the minivan after watching yesterday's choke session

What a game!
The only reason i turned this game on is because I was done watching the paint on my fence dry. Boring with a capital O.

Team USA really takes itself too seriously
You would think these guys are the cream of the crop the way they carry themselves. Very arrogant team, turned me off early.Too many out for their own moment in the spotlight. Not an impressive bunch.

Fast Fact
World Cup Soccer and Sabres Hockey is like watching paint dry. There just has to be a way to open it up.

Trade the Pick!!
Here's hoping the Sabres trade down to get a few more picks. If Wong Choson-Dix, out of the Taiwan Elite Bantams, could be had at the mid-second round, it would be a steal. Mt NAME!! My NAME!!! Laff attack
