United States: Jurgen Klinsmann’s men qualified for the tournament as CONCACAF toppers but it would still need a miracle of sorts for them to qualify from their group. They have to beat the Ghanians if they are to have any chance of qualifying. They have a very good coach in Jurgen Klinsman and their squad has a mixture of youth and experience. For the Yanks this tournament is all about redefining the US soccer dream.
Portugal: World number 4 Portugal depends a lot on their talismanic captain Christiano Ronaldo to guide them through the group stages. He single-handedly brought them to the World Cup and his fitness will decide their progress in the tournament. That said, Portugal are known for their unity and perform above expectation at major finals.
