2014 FIFA World Cup June 16 Open Thread

It's the group that everyone here cares about! Also, Iran and Nigeria or something.

The excitement hasn't died so far this World Cup. If you've missed any of the games, you've missed some must-see soccer. And we haven't even gotten to the group that most of us care about yet! It's finally here; Group G matches kick off today, along with the second appearance of Group F. Let's get to the USA match already!

Germany vs. Portugal - 10 a.m.

So far, there has not been a single draw in this World Cup. If there was ever a time for one, I think the other fans of Group G would agree, this is it! Or maybe just a big Germany win with a little Cristiano Ronaldo injury? Just throwing stones, here.

Iran vs. Nigeria - 1 p.m.

There are two teams that aren't going to win the World Cup right here, and they aren't even favored to get out of their group. Let's just move on.

USA vs. Ghana - 4 p.m.

U! S! A! U! S! A!

...This is what I call 'mailing in the daily preview'. Let's go Yanks and stuff.
