The Germans, three-time World Cup champions, finished with seven points, while the U.S. had four after allowing a 95th-minute goal against Portugal on Sunday in a 2-2 draw. Portugal also had four, but the Americans advanced from a so-called "Group of Death" because their goal difference was even and the Portuguese were minus-3.
The U.S. will next play Belgium, who beat South Korea 1-0, Tuesday at 3 pm CT. Algeria, who tied Russia 1-1, will play Geramny on Monday at 3 pm CT. The U.S. is advancing to the knockout round at consecutive World Cups for the first time in the team's history.
