The most entertaining World Cup in years continued today with a 95 minute adrenalin rush between USA and Portugal. On a night where Cristiano Renaldo played like it was his first time on a soccer field the Portuguese still found a way to tie the match late.

After letting up the first goal to Nani of Portugal, the Americans attacked for the rest of he game right until Jermaine Jones scored an incredible goal in the second half to tie it up. That was then followed up by USA’s captain Clint Dempsey who scored again to take the lead later in the second half.

Then in the in final seconds of the extra minutes in the game Renaldo made a beautiful cross pass that lead to a goal for Varela. The collective faces of everyone rooting for the USA dropped.

USA as a whole played a very good game, the few mistakes that they made though lead t big time plays for Portugal.

With this tie the USA needs to either tie or beat Germany in order to advance to the round of 16. Also Portugal must not win by more than 5 goals.
