It was the day every U.S. Men’s National Team fan was waiting for — and it did not disappoint. The Americans came up with a huge win over Ghana to open the World Cup with three points. Goal-scorers John Brooks and Clint Dempsey will get the attention, but it was in large part thanks to the quiet leadership of Jermaine Jones, SBI’s Man of the Match.

Elsewhere in Group G — the so-called “Group of Death” — Germany destroyed Portugal, coming away with a whopping 4-0 win that puts Portugal in a precarious position as they face the USMNT on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Landon Donovan continued to poke fun at his very public and unceremonious dismissal from the USMNT before the World Cup with a new commercial for EA Sports.

Here is a rundown of all the stories featured on SBI today:
