    USA v Portugal LIVE!

    Probable Lineups…

    USA  (4-4-2) : Howard; Beasley, Brooks, Cameron, Johnson; Beckerman, Bradley, Jones, Bedoya; Dempsey, Johannsson

    Having beaten Ghana 2-1 in their opening fixture thanks to a late winner from John Brooks, USA will go into tonight’s match full of confidence. They will however be missing target man Jozy Altidore up front after a hamstring injury puts him out of action. This opens the door for Aron Johannsson up front, alongside Clint Dempsey.

    Portugal (4-3-2-1): Patricio; Almeida, Costa, Alves, Pereira; Carvalho, Moutinho, Meireles; Ronaldo, Nani; Eder

    Portugal were drummed by Germany 4-0 in their opening match, a game in which they were totally outclassed. However, despite being on the end of their worst defeat in World Cup history, Portugal will fancy themselves to beat USA with the likes of Ronaldo expected to finally step up to the international stage.

    What the fans are saying…


    Remember this?

    Of course you do….


    Stats to get your head around…

    The overall record between the USA and Portugal is perfectly balanced with two wins each, one draw and five goals each.

    The USA have won their last two games against Portugal, including their encounter during the group stages of the 2002 World Cup (3-2). It’s their only meeting at the World Cup.

    Current Portugal head-coach Paulo Bento came on as a substitute in that game.

    There were two own goals during the USA’s 3-2 win against Portugal at the 2002 World Cup – it had never happened before or since in the competition.

    Jürgen Klinsmann beat Portugal as head-coach of Germany at the 2006 World Cup. It was in the third place final (3-1).

    Portugal have only won one of their last eight games at the World Cup (7-0 v North Korea in 2010), drawing three and losing four.

    Cristiano Ronaldo has scored two goals from a total of 55 shots at the World Cup.

    The USA have only kept two clean sheets in their last 24 games at the World Cup.

    The 4-0 defeat against Germany was Portugal’s heaviest World Cup defeat ever, and also the first time they conceded four goals in this competition.

    The USA have scored in seven successive World Cup games and could now equal their association record (8, 1930 – 1990).
