Of course, there's no surprise that the World Cup is slightly tilted towards the 8 seeded teams, who are supposed to be the best in the tournament. But that's not stopping Klinsmann from expecting a victory against Germany and a Group Stage championship for the Americans.
A draw would work nicely for both the Americans and the Germans, since it would move them both to the next round. That's exactly what Germany has been expecting the entire time as the group favorites, and it's exactly what the Americans have been hoping for since day 1.
It was thought to be nearly impossible for the United States to advance from group play, but they've put themselves in the driver's seat with the win over Ghana and draw against Portugal, whom they were expected to struggle against before the tournament began.
This should be a great test for the United States. We'll see if they can take advantage of this opportunity.
