The US may face a barrage of attack from the Germans, who with their strike force could trouble any team in the competition. Primarily players such as Gotze, Ozil, Kroos are quality players, who can create havoc in the US defense if they get going, while the US could exploit the high defensive line of the Germans though the counter.
One would feel, it would be safe for the US' to go for a draw and qualify for the next stage, but Klinsmann has promised that his team is going for a win, not a draw. If this is the game-plan, it is the neutrals in Brazil, who would enjoy the game.
One cannot rule out US very easily, for they have some quality players, such as Fabian Johnson, Michael Bradley, Dempsey, Matt Besler etc who could help their team stun one of the favourites and reach the knock out stage.
