Group G is the “Group of Death” in this year’s World Cup. With an average FIFA World Ranking of 13.5 (Germany 2nd, Portugal 4th, USA 13th, and Ghana 37th), it is the toughest group by that measure alone. The USA has a tough road ahead if it’s going to get out of the Group stage, where only the top two teams in the group advance to the knockout round. But stranger things have happened.
In honor of the magnitude of Group G play today, I’ll be doing play-by-play in RealExciting fashion and will post them later today. If you’re unable to watch the matches live, watch this space and synch up your DVR to watch the match with RealExciting play-by-play.
