The Americans started off with a win in their opener after taking the lead after just 30 seconds. Ghana did hit back in the 82nd minute, but the Americans then scored the winner just minutes later. It was an important match for the Americans because of several reasons. Ghana is the team who eliminated them at the last World Cup so it was very important in psychological terms to get even. However, that win came at a price.

Skybet Betting BonusWhile defender Matt Besler is expected to return without difficulty, there remains plenty for Klinsmann to contemplate heading into his side’s second game of the World Cup. The USA are without Sunderland striker Jozy Altidore with a hamstring strain while Clint Dempsey will channel his inner hockey player and play with a broken nose.

Portugal suffered a heavy defeat in their first game, losing 4-0 to group leaders Germany and now they badly needs a win to keep their chances of making the last 16 of the World Cup in their own hands. They showed lot of nervousness in the first match and the injuries will be their biggest problem.

Not only did the Portuguese lose central defender Pepe for a senseless red card, they also lost striker Hugo Almeida and defender Fabio Coentrao to apparent muscle injuries. Bento will likely go with 26-year old Eder to start in place of Almeida. Fears remain over Cristiano Ronaldo's knee, but he will be determined to keep his country in the competition. Ricardo Costa and André Almeida will come into the starting backline.

USA have a good recent form having won 7 of their last 8 matches. The only previous meeting between the U.S. and Portugal at a World Cup came in 2002, when the U.S. prevailed 3-2.


USA (4-4-1-1): Howard; Johnson, Brooks, Cameron, Beasley; Beckerman, Bradley, Jones, Bedoya; Dempsey; Johansson.
