Germany vs Portugal for 3rd place.

I'm not a fan of the 3rd place game, as most of these players already start thinking about their club season.

These games usually have more goals scored, so if you like offensive soccer, then it might be worth the time. Also younger players get playing time, so for Portugal, it might be a preview of what they have to come in terms of talent as they are one of the older teams in this WC.



3rd place game is pretty strange for us... and there is no "bronze medal" so very little to play for....
I wonder how much it means to Germany and Portugal?.. probably not much.... just to get to the Semi's and not the finals has got to be the focus... a win or a loss in the 3rd place game???? who cares....

Bruce Arena's contract with the U.S. Soccer team will not be renewed. He spent 8 years as manager of the U.S. squad.
