USA falls to Germany, but advances

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

After a ferocious match at the World Cup, the USA fell to Germany in a 1-0 loss. However, they’ll still be advancing to the knockout rounds of the final 16, because Portugal’s 2-1 win over Ghana made the ranking math work in the USA’s favor. The only goal during the USA-Germany battle came from Thomas Mueller, who shot from 18 yards away in the 55th minute. Now, the USA can expect to take on Belgium’s stellar team, which means it’ll be a very tough game to win! I’m sure the players are hoping it won’t be as rainsoaked as Thursday’s fight against Germany was!
