FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group G

FIFA 2014 World Cup Rundown: Group G

Thomas Muller’s hat-trick stole the show from Cristiano Ronaldo and so is USA, which ended Ghana’s two (2) consecutive world cup victories against them.

 

Recap

Nobody expected Die Mannschaft to demolish A Selecção easily. Thomas Muller went on a scoring rage when he hat-trick Germany to victory. Mats Hummels also added more damage as he scored the squad’s second goal.

 

Unfortunately, Portugal had a difficult time reacting to Germany’s poacher. Unable to score and suffering from injury-related issues, Portugal has readily struggled in the competition.

 

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klinsmann’s rigid German discipline is already showing results when USA took the upper hand against their fierce World Cup rival, Ghana. Prior to the match, Ghana supporters asked for USA’s head. The Black Stars eliminated USA in their last two (2) world cup clashes. However, Clint Dempsey and John Anthony Brooks’ late goal tamed Ghana.

 

The scene-stealer

Obviously, this one goes to Muller and Brooks.

 

Muller scored the tournament’s first hat-trick and on his way of winning yet another Golden Boot award.

 

Brooks’ winning goal for USA is also hard to ignore. He entered into the pitch as a substitute and readily delivered.

 

The weakest link

It might be a surprise to see Portugal as the weakest link in the group. Indeed, they have the great Ronaldo in their line-up. Yet, football is not a one-man match. Putting all the weight to the talismanic striker may not deliver the desired results. Recently, it has been confirmed that Fabio Coentrao will not be able to continue his world cup campaign due to a thigh injury. Making matters worse is the red card that a short-tempered Pepe incurred during the clash against Germany. The current situation therefore leaves Portugal in a seemingly helpless case.

 

Which teams will advance?

Germany is a top pick of world cup betting tips to advance in the next stage. However, the next slot remains open for Portugal, USA and Ghana. It seems that the unfortunate events suffered by Portugal made the matches in Group G a lot more challenging and unpredictable.
