Last second goal salvages a tie for Portugal against US

Seconds away from a huge victory taking then into the next round, the US came within moments from a huge comeback victory in the second half against Portugal.

At full gallop from the Pilsner Haus in Hoboken.

Minus three hours...


Tonight at 6:00 the US Men's National Team will take on Portugal in a key World Cup match.
A victory will advance the US out of the Group of Death but a loss would send them up against highly favored Germany in their third round robin match.

Portugal is dangerous coming off a disastrous loss against Germany. Some of their players are banged up including top international Cristiano Ronaldo. If suited, he can change a match in one second but he appears to be suffering with some damaged wheels.

US Captain Clint Dempsey who suffered a broken nose in the last match is expected to play and will lead the team with New Brunswick native and Premier League Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard.

So the US, a young but talented team will attempt to take down a European power featuring one of the best players in the world.
