Ronaldo's goal, which made it 2-1, sealed Ghana's elimination from the tournament - the only team that had a realistic chance of taking the Yanks' spot in the Round of 16. Maybe that was Ronaldo's way of saying, "Sorry, U.S., I'll make it up to you." American fans, some of whom dislike Ronaldo, sure do love him now.

Group G winners are finally set: Germany and U.S. advance, while Ghana and Portugal leave the tournament.

Team USA conquers the "Group of Death!" As Kevin Garnett would say, "Anything is possible!"
