Every knows that today is the day the USMNT could clinch its place in the knockout rounds. What we all forget is that the future World Cup Champions also play today. Belgium have a great chance to move forward as well with a result vs Russia. The third game is not meaningless. The winner can keep its hopes alive.
South Korea vs Algeria Algeria is one of the most World Cup experienced groups in the tournament. They put up an incredible fight against Belgium and I expect that effort to be on display again against a less than impressive South Korean side. Algeria is disciplined, hard-working and committed to its task. Add a little Tango Samba to the mix and that creativity could spring a few goals for the group. Enjoy the Tango Samba as you watch Algeria take care of business.
Belgium vs Russia Russia found a draw. Belgium went down early and recovered to take all three from a tactically sound Algerian side. This one has all the makings of another 2-1 result in Belgium’s favor. But maybe Belgium wants three goals and maybe you should watch this game drinking Chimay Triple. A triple for the Belgian side guarantees a win and a spot in the next round. USA vs Portugal
Now, a match-up that has the United States coming in with a bit more confidence than you would expect. Portugal lost its opening round game in a way no team wants to lose; a drubbing with red cards and injuries involved. The USMNT found a way to get a result against Ghana but also has its share of injuries to contend with. I know this is the late game but whoever wins could use a Morning Delight to continue his high from the night before. Enjoy the beer and expect a 2-1 win for the US.
