US Has a Legitimate Shot at Passing Group Stage
LeBron James recently said that winning a championship two out of four times isn’t bad. For the US Mens National Team, they have a nearly two in three chance of advancing in the World Cup.
Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight breaks it down:
he United States may or may not have played the better football in Monday’s match against Ghana. But it came away with three huge points. That, coupled with Germany’s 4-0 thrashing of Portugal, makes the U.S. slight favorites to advance to the knockout stage. FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup predictions now give the United States a 63 percent chance of advancing, up from 33 percent on Monday morning.
