Group D

United States vs Portugal
Two fairly lucky goals helped Portugal back into the game but Nuno Gomes was was brought on too late to make a difference; especially as America tried to drag the game out, deep in the Portugal half, with time-wasting tactics.

South Korea vs United States
The Koreans looked as though they wanted to win this game more than America and the United States can thank their heroic goalkeeper for the point.

Poland vs United States
Despite losing to Poland, American fans can thank South Korea for their place in the Second Round.
