The United States suffered a 1-0 loss to Germany in their final group stage game, but thanks to a 2-1 Portugal victory over Ghana, the Americans will advance to the knockout round.

Germany won Group G, and Portugal and Ghana were eliminated.

The U.S. next game will be on July 1, when they will likely face Belgium, who looks to win Group H later today.
