This isn't a preview post, but instead an offer to (1) give thoughts about how this game looks on paper and (2) answer this question:
If Germany and the U.S. both advance with a draw (which is the case), what incentive is there for either side to be aggressive. Can we expect very conservative play since Germany is guaranteed the top spot if they simply don't make mistakes?
I don't know how Germany usually plays, but it seems like there would be every incentive in this game to just putt the ball around for 90 minutes. I mean, god forbid they try to advance it and we score and end up taking first place from them. Right?
