USA vs. Germany, Ghana In Chaos, Suárez Gets Four-Month Ban

Today's Schedule

We're freaking out! It all goes down today for the USA as they face Germany and attempt to advance beyond the Group Stage. And deal with a lot of rain. Can't watch the match? Come on, The Diving German took the time to write you an excuse!

Meanwhile, Ghana are in chaos after Sulley and Prince were sent home for getting really angry, apparently. The question begs, did they get any of the cash before they left Brazil?

Before we delve further into today's menu, let's review yesterday's events. France won Group E and Switzerland finished second. Argentina won Group F and Nigeria finished second. Here's your lot:

Argentina 3 - 2 Nigeria

Bosnia 3 - 1 Iran

France 0 - 0 Ecuador

Switzerland 3 - 0 Honduras

Amy Lawrence is wondering if Nigeria will be the only African team to advance. Let's hope not!

Luis Suárez: the brainwashing, the buck-passing, the deception. Daniel Taylor is in Rio an on the case as things continue to confound.

And...he's banned for four months. Good.

Michael Cox loves to write about tactics. Which is good for us, because we enjoy reading about tactics. Here's what he's got today: From Costa Rica to Holland, five World Cup teams with element of surprise.

USA vs. Germany
Marcus Christenson: Klinsmann and Löw face off
Roger Bennett: Judgement Day

Portugal vs. Ghana

South Korea vs. Belgium

Algeria vs. Russia

Oh, dear. We've gotta run. Here: The Mill. Plus One.
