The Group of Death has not been particularly kind to Ghana or Portugal. The two teams came in with high hopes of advancement but are so far winless in their first two games. Now, they both will come in knowing they will probably need a multi-goal on Thursday in Brasilia in order to secure advancement.
Portugal's situation is particularly dire as they need to overturn a rather enormous goal-difference deficit. At -4 through their first two games, Portugal is basically five goals behind the United States. That means they probably need the United States to lose to Germany by a couple goals in order to really have hope and then blow out Ghana.

Ghana is falling apart
Chaos in the Ghana camp, which began with the team demanding unpaid wages, has culminated in two players being sent home - just hours before the Black Stars face off against Portugal.

Ghana only trails the United States two goals, but they'll need to do better than pulling even on goal-difference in order to move on. Due to losing their head-to-head match with the USA that means Ghana either need a multi-goal loss from the USA or a one-goal loss coupled with their own multi-goal win.
To put it another way, both teams are probably going to want to pile up goals. This could get fun.
