Why is the Latino board so whack?
The US isn't in a terrible position at this point. Obivously the game against Ghana is must-win. If the US beats Ghana, we can advance if:
1) Italy beats the Czech Republic
2) The Czech Republic and the US win big (such that the US goal differential is superior to the Italians OR equal to the Italians with a higher number of goals scored. Currently US GD is -3, Italy is +2. A US victory by three goals and Czech victory by two goals (or vice versa) would result in a tie between the US and the Italians in both points and goal differential, with goals scored becoming the next tiebreaker.
3) Italy and the Czech Republic tie AND the US beats Ghana by at least four goals.
Obivously, its easiest if the Italians just beat the damn Czechs, but if the Czechs jumpt to an early two goal lead, you should cheer for them to score more.
And, can anybody tell me with certainty what time both games will be broadcast? The official website has them listed as the same time, but I hope that's not the case.
