Germany and Portugal are the favorites to get out of Group G, but if either loses Monday (12 p.m. ET, ESPN), they could face stiff competition from the United States or Ghana. A loss isn't a disaster for either team, but it'll make their lives very difficult.
Portugal are built around Cristiano Ronaldo, and they're hoping he'll be fully fit for the game. He's been suffering from tendinosis, but he played an hour in Portugal's last warm-up friendly and is expected to be fit enough to start this game.
Injuries have ravaged Germany and have them shuffling their lineup ahead of this game. There are reports circulating that Philipp Lahm will be moved into the midfield, while Mesut Özil and Mario Götze will be dropped in favor of more direct, athletic options.
