US Soccer Team Loses to Germany, Still Advances

The U.S. national team qualified for the last 16 of the 2014 World Cup despite losing 1-0 to Germany in Recife on Thursday.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s men completed a remarkable group stage campaign, as they finished runners up in Group G to Germany and qualified for the knockout rounds for the fifth-time in their history. The game-winning moment arrived in the 55th minute as Thomas Muller finished off a loose ball clinically but all eyes were on the other game in Group G, where Portugal beat Ghana 2-1 but that meant the U.S. had pulled off a huge shock to make the knockout round.

The USA will now play the winners of Group H, likely to be Belgium, on Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET in Salvador, as Klinmann’s men produced one of the best group stage displays in their World Cup history.
