Egypt 1, Italy 0

So the Egyptian side has given the US some hope. With the win against Italy, Egypt sits in 2nd place alongside the Italians. This means that the United States could still potentially (and unbelievably) move on to the semifinals.

Group B
Team MP W D L GF GA Pts
Brazil 2 2 0 0 7 3 6
Italy 1 1 0 1 3 2 3
Egypt 1 1 0 1 4 4 3
USA 2 0 0 2 1 6 0

So, the United States needs to beat Egypt by 3 or more goals and hope for an Italy loss to Brazil – by 4 or more goals.

Ouch. We’ve got to score at least 3 and Brazil has to score at least 4? And both games have to be shutouts? Not bloody likely.
