One of the reasons Portugal scored against the USMNT was due to player mistakes. Sometimes Portugal was unable to capitalize on them, but Germany will not let them go so easily. Michael Bradley needs to make sure all his passes are complete and his shots are on goal.

It is no secret that the USMNT back line is not perfect. This is why Time Howard is so important to the team. He is one of the best goalkeepers in the World Cup, and if a shot can be saved, he will be there. He knows the importance of this match against Germany, and he will play his absolute best. Germany’s strikers will need to work harder than ever.

Having Jozy Altidore out on injury is not ideal, but it is not completely damaging to the team. The USMNT was able to draw against Portugal without him, and it will be able to play well against Germany without him too. It has plenty of good strikers and midfielders who can match Altidore’s powerful strikes and scores.

During the match against Portugal, Chris Wondolowski saw a few minutes for the team. Wondolowski is a good super-sub when it comes to the USMNT. He’s quick and is good at making goals. He is still fairly new to the international pitch, but it could be a victory for the USMNT and MLS if Wondolowski finds the net against Germany.

This statement seemed a lot less plausible a year ago, but based on how the USMNT is playing right now, it is not that ridiculous. The “I believe that we will win” chant is not a bunch of empty words or a huge leap of faith, it is something fans truly believe. This is because the USMNT has proven that it is possible.
