Quite possibly the best voice you will hear all day, that’s because when you hear Chris Malone weekdays from 3pm to 7pm, your workday should be about done.  Chris keeps your favorite music going strong as you head down the home stretch.  Keep 98.5 KTK with you in the car, as hitting the rush hour adds stress; Chris keeps you cool with an hour of commercial-free music starting just before 5pm!

USA vs Germany Soccer Scenarios For The World Cup

What a game Sunday night!  A win would have been awesome!  However a tie is better than loss as the US is still in the hunt for the World Cup.  Thanks to MLS (Major League Soccer) for the scenario information on what happens on the outcome of Thursday's game against Germany:

So if the US beat Germany, they will have 7 points, which would put them at the top of Group G and would pit them against the second-place finisher out of Group H. 

If the US tie Germany, they would also advance to the knockout round. This time, they would come in second and face the first-place finisher out of Group H, most likely Belgium.

If the US lose to Germany, they will need to rely on what happens in the Portugal-Ghana game, which is also on Thursday, concurrently with the US-Germany game (noon ET, ESPN2):

  • If Portugal and Ghana draw, they will each have two points and the USA will be through to the Round of 16 in second place.
  • If Portugal win, things look still quite sunny for the US. The Portuguese would need to make up five goals on the US, no easy feat.
  • If Ghana win, things get a bit hairier for USA. The Black Stars would need to make up just two goals against the US, which would happen if they win 1-0 and the US lose 1-0. But If that scenario does happen, the US would still advance. The two teams would be tied on goal differential and goals scored so it would go to the head-to-head result. The US beat Ghana on Monday night.
  • In any other scenario in which the US lose and Ghana win, Ghana would advance.
