Instead, it was far from glorious–but to be fair it didn’t suck either.

Having already beaten Ghana in their first match of the World Cup the USMNT could lock up a spot in the next round with a win over Portugal. With a hobbled Cristiano Ronaldo hopes were high even though the team was without Jozy Altidore.

Even though Portugal was up early thanks to a goal by Nani that was made easy when U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard slipped the team did not lose hope. The score was finally tied up in the second half thanks to Jermain Jones (64′) whose goal was followed up shortly after with another by Clint Dempsey (81′).

So with time running out it looked like the U.S. was going to do it. After regulation ended and injury time began fans across the nation began to celebrate in anticipation of what they though was inevitable.

But than Cristiano Ronaldo happened:

With one assist Portugal’s star slipped a dagger not necessarily in to the hearts of U.S. fans everywhere, but he certainly caused them some pain and anguish.

After hearing Jurgen Klinsmann say the team didn’t have a shot before the Worlld Cup started the nation was a bit overjoyed that it had the opportunity to lock up a spot in the next round. There is no reason for the the enthusiasm to dampen just yet.

The U.S. still controls its own destiny:

So basically it is still win and the U.S. is in.
