One more game. That’s all that is standing between the U.S. Men’s National Team and a berth into the World Cup’s Round of 16. They will face Germany Thursday for the final Group G match and, for the USMNT’s large German-American continent, it will be a special one, SBI’s Franco Panizo reported from Brazil. Though a draw will be enough for the USMNT to advance, the whole squad is out to win and believe they can top the group.

For star striker Luis Suarez, his Uruguay team is already qualified for the Round of 16 — but he may not be going with him. FIFA formally charged Suarez with biting Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini during their final group match and a decision should come soon from FIFA’s disciplinary panel on whether he is guilty of the act. He faces a two-game minimum ban, but it could be as much as two years.

In World Cup results, Lionel Messi continues to carry Argentina on his back and his side finally enjoyed an attacking win during this World Cup, pushing past Nigeria, 3-2. Messi is on a goal-scoring spree and with Argentina advancing, he may have more to show. Meanwhile, Ecuador fell short of advancing and Bosnia & Herzegovina were knocked out too, but found their first-ever win in a World Cup match.
