Today the United States plays against Portugal in the FIFA World Cup 2014.
The US team had an awesome start into the World Cup 2014 with a win against Ghana. Clint Dempsey scored the first goal just after 30 seconds. Germany failed against Ghana yesterday only reaching a 2:2. Germany won against Portugal. Can the US team do the same thing? Can they stop Cristiano Ronaldo?
Cristiano Ronaldo seems to have recovered from the loss against Germany. He posted a Tweet yesterday showing him next to a carved melon in Manaus. See the Tweet below.
In an interview with FIFA, Clint Dempsey said that they do not specifically focus on Ronaldo and see Portugal as a whole team they have to prepare against. So the US is not worried that Cristiano Ronaldo will have a reason to take his shirt of today.
