No please don't. Have you all worked out your quips yet before I got here, Christian?
Ghana aren't sitting back for the defeat here, as Beto claims a cross from the right flank. It's an open game so far.
Chance for Germany! Lahm with a sneaky run to the edge of the box. He slips the ball wide right for Boateng, who was wide-open after DaMarcus Beasley lost track of him. Low cross is turned away though. Scrambled. Bundled.
Would be nice if Brad Davis remembered how to protect his left-back. Alas. Curious line-up choices, I thought. But no time for pre-game musing. Game's afoot. And Germany aren't playing for the draw.
Another gangly hack by Omar Gonzalez! And another successful one. Thomas Muller plays a one-two but Gonzalez lumbers over before the German can shoot, sliding across his path and whacking it clear.
joseph, hoisting the sailboat? Doing 'The Jose'? Correct Gillette Boot Room terminology, please!
Moments later another gallop to the touchline for Germany. Cut-back cross is walloped away by Jermaine Jones who had taken up a smart position on the penalty spot.
Nick, spoken like a true Arsenal fan.
I enjoy Geoff Cameron, JoJo.
16 minutes in and Ronaldo slips in the Ghana box going for a pass, and is helped to his feet. He's surely Portugal's best hope today, and he looks absolutely up for this game.
Another flowing move upfield by Germany but flagged for offside when the final through-ball was played. Howard was off his line sharply to collect anyway.
namo - Ronaldo is looking extremely sharp...
Fatawu Dauda has somehow kept out a Cristiano Ronaldo header from point-blank range, tipping it away!
Shot for the USA! But it's DaMarcus Beasley taking it, a man who hasn't scored for the national team in six years. He skids it gently to Neuer from 20 yards out. A sad effort. A tame effort. A limp effort.
A breathless minute here as Asamoah Gyan is now through, and his low volley from 19 yards out is really well stopped by Beto with his feet - superb stuff!
Ooh, Éder should do better as he completely misses a teasing cross from Miguel Veloso.
