The US likely won't get even a point with that draw. Maybe 1. MAYBE. They also have to travel about 9000 miles in the group stage. There is no group this difficult. The US won CONCACAF and is the 'tomato can' of the group. Needless to say, I'm not happy, but I'm eager to see how our boys do. I'd like some revenge vs Ghana.
The US won CONCACAF without the real offensive starting lineup playing together. Donovan, Altadore, Dempsey, and Bradley have yet to all play in the same game, once they are together and gelled they should be able to score against Ghana and Portugal. The real key will be beating Ghana 1-0 and then hopefully shutting Ronaldo down and winning that one 1-0 or maybe even 2-1. But yeah it's a long shot.
