Minute Commentary
90' PORTUGAL 2-2 USA
This is the World Cup that just keeps on giving isn't it? We were seconds away from having another team in the last-16 and another out the exit door, but a rare bit of quality from Portugal has opened Group G up again. Paulo Bento's side made the most of a slow start from their opponents as Geoff Cameron made a mess of a left wing cross, allowing Nani all the time in the world to pick his spot and fire home from the angle of the six-yard box. Jurgen Klinsmann's side responded brilliantly though, and put their opponents under pressure with their high pressing game for the remainder of the half without creating any real chances of note. The Portuguese could have made it two before the break, but Nani hit the post and Eder saw his follow up acrobatically saved by Tim Howard. Portugal started the second period in much the same manner as they did the first, as they dominated proceedings in the middle of the pitch, but it wasn't long before USA found their mojo again. Jermaine Jones was the man who got them back on level terms with a thunderbolt from the edge of the area, before Clint Dempsey squeezed home from a Fabian Johnson cross to give his side the lead. The men in red knocked on the door for the last quarter of an hour with little success, and it was down to the captain Cristiano Ronaldo to step up to the plate deep into injury time as he put in a delivery of the quality that was lacking from his teammates all night, with substitute Silvestre Varela meeting his fabulous cross with a thumping header that nearly took the net off. USA can still afford to lose against Germany and have Portugal win against Ghana, so long as they keep their superior goal difference over them. The last round of group games should be fascinating, and given the quality we have seen in this World Cup so far, you'd have to be a mad man to miss them.
90' PORTUGAL SNATCH A POINT IN MANAUS
That was virtually the last kick of the match! Portugal have denied USA group stage qualification from under their nose! This World Cup has delivered another cracker of a match!
90' PORTUGAL 2-2 USA
This point is still one that suits USA more than it does Portugal, but try telling Jurgen Klinsmann that! Agony for the Americans as Cristiano Ronaldo shows his class. Their captain is so often the scorer in these types of moments, but he's the provider here as he sprints down the right and delivers a peach of a cross to the back stick for substitute Silvestre Varela to power a header into the top corner of Tim Howard's net.
90' GOOOAAALLL!!!
What drama! Portugal still have a pulse in this World Cup as Silvestre Varela gets them a last minute leveller in Manaus!
90' HALF CHANCE
Portugal get the ball out wide, and Miguel Veloso puts in a cross that is headed wide from deep by Cristiano Ronaldo. USA creep ever closer to progression from Group G.....
90' KEEPING THE BALL
Three minutes remain, and the Americans are keeping the ball down the left wing and frustrating their opponents. Can they hang on?
90' GOOD TRY
Bruno Alves, who is almost playing as a forward for Portugal now, displays great athleticism to volley a deep cross towards goal, but his effort hits the side netting. We are into five minutes of injury time now, and Graham Zusi has just been replaced by Omar Gonzalez for USA.
88' GOALSCORER TAKEN OFF
Jurgen Klinsmann makes a change to waste a few valuable seconds, with Clint Demspey departing to vociferous support. Chris Wondolowski is his replacement.
86' HEARTS IN MOUTHS
Portugal have a free-kick cleared to the edge of the box, where a shot from Moutinho finds its way to Ronaldo six yards out. Tim Howard makes a fine save to deny him, but the offside flag was up anyway, as Ronaldo was at least five yards beyond the last defender. It hasn't been Portugal's, or Ronaldo's, tournament has it?
83' PORTUGAL 1-2 USA
This is a goal that has massive implications in Group G, as USA are currently making their way into the last-16, and Portugal are heading home. A cross from the right was mishit by Michael Bradley, but it fell to Fabian Johnson, who delivered a lovely ball in for Dempsey to chest into the back of the net, with replays showing he was just onside. Jurgen Klinsmann will be counting down the minutes now!
82' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Unbelievable! Clint Dempsey completes the turnaround for the USA! They lead with eight minutes left on the clock!
80' POOR ONCE MORE FROM NANI
Portugal spread the ball nicely as Nani pops up with the ball on the right flank. He cuts inside, but instead of crossing for his awaiting teammates, he swings his boot at a shot that flies well over Tim Howard's bar. I'd forgive him if he wasn't sporting a ridiculous haircut.
78' BEASLEY INJURED?
DaMarcus Beasley is down in a heap inside his own half after he overstretched while going in for a challenge. The stretcher comes on for him as the USA camp fear the worst, but Beasley refuses it and walks off instead - the ultimate sign of masculinity. It looks like he should be fine to continue.
76' JONES CAUTIONED
Jermaine Jones gets a little too close and personal with Joao Moutinho for the referee's liking as he hacks the Portugal midfielder down, and the USA's goalscorer picks up a yellow card for his troubles. Jurgen Klinsmann's side are sitting a lot deeper as we enter the last quarter of an hour in Manaus - are they happy with a point?
74' HOPEFUL APPEALS
Following a period of pressure from Portugal on the edge of the USA box, Nani tries to earn his side a penalty as he goes to ground under a challenge from DaMarcus Beasley. The referee says no dice though, and the Portuguese frustration intensifies.
71' USA MAKE A SUB
In response to that Portugal change, Jurgen Klinsmann makes a sub of his own, with Alejandro Bedoya making way for DeAndre Yedlin. Twenty minutes remain in Manaus - are we set for some late drama?
69' PORTUGUESE CHANGE
Paulo Bento decides to make another substitution, with Silvestre Varela coming on in place of Raul Meireles. A draw won't send them out tonight, but considering their poor goal difference, it's very hard to see them progressing with anything less than a win this evening.
67' PORTUGAL NEARLY TAKE THE LEAD
Portugal nearly muster up the perfect response, as Tim Howard can only punch a cross under pressure from Eder and Ronaldo, and Raul Meireles is on hand to volley the loose ball towards goal. The Everton stopper got down well to smother the effort, however. This is shaping up to be a great last 25 minutes.
65' PORTUGAL 1-1 USA
Pick. That. One. Out. Jermaine Jones picks up a cleared ball from a corner, dances past Nani and strikes the ball unerringly into the far corner of Beto's net from 25 yards out. The Portugal keeper didn't even move there! What a huge goal that could prove to be in Group G.
64' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Jermaine Jones levels things up in Manaus with an absolute screamer! We've got a real game on our hands now!
62' POOR FINISH FROM RONALDO
Portugal again threaten to punish USA on the break as Eder brings the ball out from his own area and gets the ball into Ronaldo's feet. The whole stadium holds its breath, but his finish is awful from the right-hand side of the area and his wait for a goal at this World Cup goes on. Jurgen Klinsmann will be very concerned with the way his men are being exposed on the counter here.
60' GREAT TACKLE
Paulo Bento's men again have the chance to get their opponents on the back foot on the counter-attack, and Ronaldo gets it started with a pass infield to Eder. The striker tries to turn, but he is brilliantly stopped by DaMarcus Beasley - top work there, because that looked very dangerous.
58' POOR PLAY FROM NANI
Cristiano Ronaldo is livid with Nani, and he has every right to be. The Real Madrid man made an intelligent run to draw the defenders away from Nani to allow him to have a shot from the edge of the area, but the Man Utd winger tried to do too much, and Matt Besler stole the ball off him.
55' SHOULD HAVE SCORED
All of a sudden USA crank up through the gears as Graham Zusi shows Miguel Veloso a clean pair of heels down the right-hand side. Zusi shows great awareness to pull the ball back for Bradley, with Beto nowhere to be seen, but Ricardo Costa heroically blocks the midfielder's shot on the line. How isn't it 1-1 in Manaus?!
54' PATIENT PLAY
Portugal are doing a very good job of dampening any momentum that their opponents were buliding as we went into half time. They are keeping the ball and spreading it around with confidence at the moment. Jurgen Klinsmann's side aren't pressing with the same intensity as they were in the first period.
51' EDER SHOOTS WIDE
A lot of action going on down Portugal's left flank, where Ronaldo and Miguel Veloso (who is now playing at left-back) are posing a threat in the early stages of this half. Eder comes short on that side to pick up a throw-in, but he crashes a shot into the side netting. USA are barely getting a kick at the moment - half time came at the wrong time for them by the looks of things.
49' AMBITIOUS EFFORT
Portugal have come out of the traps in similar fashion to the first half, as they have started at breakneck speed since the break. Nani delivers a good ball in from the right, and Eder goes for an acrobatic scissor kick, but his attempt flies over the bar.
47' PORTUGAL SUB
Paulo Bento made a change at half time, with William Carvalho coming on in place of Andre Almeida. Portugal were definitely getting overrun in midfield, so Carvalho should add a bit of steel to the middle of the park and prevent USA from overpowering them.
46' BACK UNDERWAY
Portugal get the second half started, looking to protect the lead that would keep their World Cup hopes alive.
45' PORTUGAL 1-0 USA
In their first games of Group G, USA got off to the best possible start, while Portugal began in horrible fashion against Germany. However, in this clash the roles have been reversed as Paulo Bento's men lead thanks to a goal inside the first five minutes. The Portuguese started the match the better of the two, and got their reward when their opponents were caught cold from a left wing cross. Geoff Cameron made a hash of his attempted clearance, and Nani kept his composure to wait as long as possible before drilling the ball over Tim Howard and into the net. However, the Americans are nothing if not dogged, and they dug in to resist the early Portugal onslaught, and they dominated the rest of the half. Jurgen Klinsmann's side failed to create any golden opportunities, as they were restricted to long range shots from Michael Bradley, and attempts from difficult angles from Clint Dempsey, but they definitely had the Portugal midfield and defence worried as they pressed them into making mistakes. We have only had one real chance, and it has been taken - with this game nicely poised, hopefully the second half will bring us many more. Join us in a couple of moments for live coverage of the second 45 minutes in Manaus.
45' PORTUGAL LEAD AT THE INTERVAL
The half time whistle blows in Manaus after two uneventful additional minutes, and Portugal lead USA by a goal to nil as we head into the break.
45' OFF THE WOODWORK
Portugal are twice just a couple of inches from going two goals ahead! Nani, who looks like a man reborn in these first 45 minutes, rattles the post with a venomous drive, before Eder's follow-up is brilliantly tipped over by Tim Howard as he was falling to the floor. What a way to end the half that would have been!
42' PORTUGAL THREATEN ON THE BREAK
The Americans had better make sure they don't commit to may men forward too early, as their opponents have pace to burn on the break. Ronaldo shows that here as he sprints at the USA defence, drawing them all towards him, before giving the ball to Nani on the right. The scorer of the first goal hits it true, but Tim Howard was always behind that one. Seconds later Ronaldo blazes a free-kick miles over from 30 yards.
39' JONES IN A SPOT OF BOTHER
Jermaine Jones goes down to ground with no one around him in the middle of the park, and he will have to go off for some treatment. The rest of the players take this opportunity to get some fluids down them, or over them I should say, as they spray water in their faces. Five minutes until half time, and USA are pressing for an equaliser in Manaus.
36' SMART SAVE FROM BETO
Jurgen Klinsmann's side certainly aren't shy of having a dig from range are they? DaMarcus Beasley (great first name by the way) lets fly with a low shot, but Beto gets down quickly to smother the attempt. Down the other end Cristiano Ronaldo works himself a bit of room before stinging Tim Howard's palms with a fierce drive.
34' HITS THE SIDE NETTING
Fabian Johnson goes on an adventurous run from defence and decides to have a pop from outside the area. It isn't a bad hit, but the ball rattles the side netting. USA have been much the better team since going behind early on.
31' RONALDO BROUGHT DOWN
After an American attack breaks down, Portugal work the ball to Cristiano Ronaldo, who is barged to the floor immediately by Kyle Beckerman. Ronaldo is the out ball for Paulo Bento's men at the moment, as he is relieving the pressure on his side by escaping down the flank or drawing a free-kick.
29' DRAGGED WIDE
A lack of pressure from the Portugal midfield allows Michael Bradley to set his sights from 30 yards, but he can't connect with his left-footed daisycutter properly and the ball trickles past the far post. Fifteen minutes remain until the break.
28' GOOD BLOCK
Jurgen Klinsmann's men continue to knock on the door as Zusi feeds Dempsey on the edge of the box. The midfielder's clever first touch takes him away from Raul Meireles, but his eventual shot from the angle is blocked by Andre Almeida. Portugal are under the cosh here.
26' PRESSING HIGH
Despite the soaring temperatures, USA are maintaining a high tempo in midfield and are forcing their opponents into uncharacteristic errors. Nani gives the ball away under pressure in his own half here, but Graham Zusi's first touch is poor, and the Portuguese backline has time to reorganise and shut him out. There are definitely more goals in this one yet.
23' SLOPPY PLAY
Both teams are making plenty of errors as we enter the halfway stage of this first 45 minutes. Ronaldo intercepts a poor pass from Kyle Beckerman, before he makes amends by latching onto an even worse ball out of the defence from Bruno Alves. The ball then falls for Michael Bradley, who lashes a fierce effort a yard or two over the bar.
20' CROWDED OUT
It's been one-way traffic for the last ten minutes or so, but Portugal have an opportunity to threaten on the counter. However, Matt Besler nicks the ball off Ronaldo's toes as the Real Madrid flyer tried to turn. Well played that man, although he may have to do some more of that in the next 70 minutes or so.
18' FULL OF RUNNING
Michael Bradley gets his head up from the centre of the field and dinks a ball over the top for Dempsey to chase. The former Fulham and Tottenham man gets there before Ricardo Costa, and tests Beto with a low shot that the Portugal keeper puts behind for a corner. Dempsey gets on the end of the delivery, but his attempted lob is too high, and the ball sails behind for a goal kick.
16' EDER ON FOR POSTIGA
Is there a football god up in the skies that has it in for Portuguese strikers or something? Hugo Almeida went off with an injury in the first half against Germany, and now Helder Postiga is crumpled on the deck. He will have to come off, with Eder coming on to replace him.
14' NOT A BAD EFFORT
This is a chance for Clint Dempsey to chance his arm from range as USA have a free-kick 25 yards out, just right of centre. Dempsey gets it up and over the wall, but the ball flies an inch or two over the crossbar, with Beto nervously trying to get a hand to it. This has been a terrific response from the Americans.
12' NEED TO GET ON THE FRONT FOOT
It's never ideal going a goal down inside five minutes, but it is less so for USA, as the heat in Manaus is far worse than it was during England's loss to Italy last Saturday. They will need to stop Portugal spreading the ball around and sitting on their goal lead, because in these temperatures the last thing you want to be doing is chasing the ball down for minutes on end.
10' BETTER FROM USA
This is more like it from the men in white, as Alejandro Bedoya chases down a long ball down the right flank. He does well to keep it in play, before cutting inside and releasing a shot that is blocked behind for a corner by Bruno Alves. Jurgen Klinsmann's men have seemingly woken up from their early slumber.
9' PORTUGAL ON TOP
We are just under ten minutes into this Group G clash, and it's been all Portugal so far. Ronaldo and Nani are heavily involved early doors, with the two wide players displaying flicks and tricks aplenty. USA need to see this period of dominance out without conceding another goal here.
6' PORTUGAL 1-0 USA
USA had a dream start in their first game against Ghana, but they have gifted their opponents the lead here. A cross comes in from the left, with Geoff Cameron completely slicing the ball, and it ends up at the feet of Nani on the far side of the box. The Man Utd winger takes his time, waits for Tim Howard to make his move, and fires the ball into the roof of the net. Just the start Portugal needed, but Jurgen Klinsmann will be furious with his side's defending there.
5' GOOOAAALLL!!!
Nani gives Portugal the lead inside five minutes in Manaus! What a start!
2' DODGY START
In the second minute of "Cristiano Ronaldo watch" we see the Portuguese superstar pick the ball up on the right wing and over-hit a pass straight out of play. Best player in the world? If these opening two minutes are anything to go by, he wouldn't get into my local five-a-side.
1' KICK OFF
USA get us under way in Manaus, in a game that could see Portugal on the next plane home if they lose. A huge 90 minutes coming up in Group G.
0' RONALDO STARTS, BROOKS ON THE BENCH
Unsurprisingly, Cristiano Ronaldo starts for Portugal in Manaus, despite growing concerns about the captain's fitness, as his knee was heavily taped during recent training sessions. Meanwhile USA's hero in the last game against Ghana can't find a place in the starting line-up, as defender John Brooks is on the bench for Jurgen Klinsmann's side.

0' WIN OR BUST
When the draw was made for this World Cup a lot of people said that Group G was the one to look out for. Four teams who have experience of going far in World Cup tournaments have been facing off against each other, and we're slowly approaching the stage where Brazil will have to wave goodbye to two of them. This match between Portugal and USA could either all but confirm the exit of one team – as if Portugal lose they are out, and if they draw it still looks very difficult for them to progress given their negative goal difference – or make things as tight as possible – as if Portugal win then any two of the four teams from the group could qualify. We will have live text commentary of this intriguing clash coming up in a few hours.
0' BENTO'S BOYS ON THE BRINK
Portugal have a history of going far in World Cup competitions, as they have reached two semi-finals in the last two decades, but their recent record makes for grim reading for their fans. They have won just one of their last eight fixtures in the tournament (a 7-0 thrashing of North Korea in 2010), and were demolished by Germany in the first games of the group stage to immediately put them on the back foot. Throw in the fact that they are without defender Pepe after he got sent off against the Germans, and the fact that their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is barely half fit and you would forgive manager Paulo Bento for thinking that everything is going against his side at the moment. Their mission tonight is simple – they must win at all costs, with or without their key players.
0' CAN USA KEEP PORTUGAL AT BAY?
As far as opening games at World Cups go, things couldn't have gone much better for USA against Ghana. They scored within the first 31 seconds to start their tournament with a bang, and they got a late winner to send their fans into a euphoric state. So far so good then, but Jurgen Klinsmann is expecting a very tough task for his players tonight, as he thinks that Portugal will be hurting from their humbling at the hands of Germany and will play with the bit between their teeth in this clash. However, if there is one thing that the American team doesn't lack, it is fighting spirit, so they will leave everything out on the field tonight, safe in the knowledge that a win will see them through to the next stage of the competition.
0' REF WATCH
Argentina's Nestor Pitana will be the man in the middle for this crucial Group G clash, as he takes charge of his second game of the tournament. His previous match was the 1-1 draw between Russia and South Korea, where Pitana brandished four yellow cards, which if my maths is correct means he has a card average of four per game at this World Cup. The 39-year old will be assisted by fellow Argentine's Hernan Maidana and Juan Pablo Belatti, while Guatemala's Walter Lopez will be our fourth official in Manaus.
0' EARLY TEAM NEWS
Cristiano Ronaldo is likely to start for Portugal despite having his knee heavily taped up in training and only appearing to be half fit, but Fabio Coentrao will miss the rest of the competition after injuring himself in the game against Germany. Bruno Alves is a massive doubt for Paulo Bento's men meanwhile, and fellow defender Pepe is suspended. USA boss Jurgen Klinsmann only has one injury concern ahead of this clash, as Jozy Altidore is injured and will be replaced by Aaron Johannsson up top, while Clint Dempsey has recovered from a broken nose in time for this match. Defender Matt Besler has also been ruled fit for the game in Manaus.
