Tuesday night's Nigeria-Greece game at PPL Park was worth attending in its own right, but it carried extra significance for U.S. men's national team fans. The Super Eagles will be the final opponent for Jurgen Klinsmann's squad before it heads to Brazil for the World Cup.

Tuesday night's Nigeria-Greece game at PPL Park was worth attending in its own right, but it carried extra significance for U.S. men's national team fans. The Super Eagles will be the final opponent for Jurgen Klinsmann's squad before it heads to Brazil for the World Cup.

So after the scoreless draw in Chester, what should you expect to see on Saturday in Jacksonville? I got together with Eli Pearlman-Storch of The Philly Soccer Page to answer that question, and to discuss Greece and Nigeria's World Cup prospects.
