Odds based on starting XI: Portugal: 43.6%, draw: 30.0%, Ghana: 26.4%

Germany vs Ghana 2:2

Germany and Ghana drew in an open Game with many chances on both sides. The high favorite Germany failed to dominate Ghana for most parts of the game. The German offensive was impressive, but Ghana hat many equally good chances, too, both from counter and open play. Germany could turn Ghana's lead into a draw by bringing on Schweinsteiger (182) and Klose (113) for Götze (147) and Khedira (139).

A sidenote: Goalimpact would select exactly the same stating XI for Germany, but Schweinsteiger over Khedira and Großkreutz over Höwedes.

Ghana vs USA: Match Preview

In this match Ghana is the favorite. Not only did they field the better starting XI, but they also have more quality to bring in from the bench. Afful might sound awful in English, but he can have high impact on a game. Same holds for Inkoom and, of course, Essien and Boateng. It is actually a bit strange to so much quality in the bench instead of the pitch.
