  • We know you were aching for an absurdly in-depth tactical breakdown of the U.S. vs. Ghana. Blake Thomsen has got you covered.

  • Sunil Gulati shot down a report that FIFA had asked the U.S.S.F. to form an organizing committee to take over the 2022 World Cup if it’s taken away from Qatar. “They haven’t asked us, and I cannot imagine it happening anytime soon,” Gulati said.

  • “Before the players arrived, U.S. Soccer had already shipped 94 boxes and bags of food, trunks, duffel bags and technical equipment weighing 7,050 pounds. Among those supplies: breakfast cereals that are not available in Brazil; flaxmeal and vanilla whey protein; cooking supplies and condiments; almond butter.”

  • Timmy Chandler is expected to return to training today after dealing with a minor knee injury.

  • Javier Hernandez won’t be starting for Mexico today. It’s okay to laugh.

  • Manaus!

  • "The United States are a very, very good team," Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah said. "It's not going to be easy. We have to make sure our players are playing their roles well."

  • We want to know what your starting lineup would be for Monday's match.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo cut a training session short, leaving with an ice pack on his left knee. Doctors of the Internet, head to WebMD.
