    Both through as Germans edge US

    Germany beat USA 1-0 on a rain-soaked day in Recife, a result that takes both sides through from a highly competitive Group G at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. A 2-1 win for Portugal over Ghana in the section’s other game was enough to push both the Americans and Germans through on four and seven points respectively. The final whistle brought a joint celebration from the teams on the pitch at the Arena Pernambuco.

    The Germans dominated the opening quarter-hour. The European giants pressed forward with power and speed, perhaps eager to squash suspicion that both sides would play for a mutually-beneficial draw. Jerome Boateng flew up the right side and the early plan of attack become clear for the Mannschaft: isolate US left-back DaMarcus Beasley. The only remaining USA veteran of the famous quarter-final game in Ulsan at Korea/Japan 2002, the one-time flying winger is now a defender and one-on-one defending is not his strong suit. A number of dangerous crosses came from Beasley’s side in the early going before he came to grips with the game.

    USA had very little possession of the ball in the first-half and they were clearly set up to break on the counter-attack. Their best chance came in the 22nd minute. Brad Davis, the MLS set-piece specialist with Houston Dynamo, was playing in his first-ever World Cup game and he rewarded the faith Jurgen Klinsmann showed in him when he raced across the pitch from right to left and fed the ball to Graham Zusi. The pony-tailed winger’s wicked curling shot from the edge of the area stretched Manuel Neuer but kept rising over the bar.

    USA coach Klinsmann is not afraid to shake things up. He’s chopped and changed his side in every game here in Brazil and the man who won the World Cup as a player with Germany in 1990 and coached them in 2006, turned to a new centre-back for this crucial fixture. Omar Gonzalez had played only one minute in the Stars and Stripes’ two games, but he started this one. His headed intervention early in the second-half denied a clear scoring chance for substitute Miroslav Klose at the back post.

    But Gonzalez, despite being a full stretch, could do nothing about the German goal in the 55th minute. US keeper Tim Howard denied a header from Benedikt Howedes, but his punch found the feet of Thomas Muller who curled his effort home for his fourth goal of the finals.

    USA finish second in the group and will now meet the winner of Group H, likely to be Belgium at this point, in the Round of 16. The group-winning Germans take on the second-place finisher from that same section.

    USA-Germany: Quotes

    Joachim Low, Germany coach
    We were well organised today and dominated the match. We didn’t let USA have a chance on our goal right up to the final whistle. We were strong in midfield and that’s where we put them under pressure. Bastian Schweinsteiger was excellent until he ran out of steam. It was a good opportunity to give Sami Khedira a rest. Even during our preparations Thomas Muller was in great shape both physically and mentally. He’s a very intelligent player and it’s very difficult to defend against him. He makes everything look so easy and he’s very valuable for us. Now we’re in the Round of 16 and it’s a different kind of situation. It’s all or nothing and that brings with it a completely different dynamic and a different kind of tension.

    Thomas Muller, Germany forward and Budweiser Man of the Match

    We started strongly and showed who was boss straight away. Four goals in three games? It feels good because it means you can rely on your own ability. I’m enjoying it a lot. I hope I can contribute to us going as far as possible and maybe even going all the way.

    Jurgen Klinsmann, USA coach

    It’s a great achievement to get out of this group and into the knockout rounds. It was a difficult game, both physically and mentally, because the knowledge that a draw would be enough was always at the back of our minds. We were a bit too nervous and showed them too much respect at the start but we calmed down as the match wore on. We’ve got a great team and we put in a superb performance. We could have created a few more chances but overall I’m satisfied. It was one of the most difficult groups at the tournament. Ghana and Portugal are good teams and Germany are one of the favourites to win the title. We’re still learning and growing as a team. Now everything starts from scratch again because the knockout rounds are very different.
