SB Nation's 2014 World Cup Preview'

The United States take on Germany in final match of group play in the 2014 World Cup on Thursday afternoon at 12:00 p.m. ET.

Despite the strength of Germany, the U.S. are in a solid position to advance to the Round of 16. A win or a draw and the United States advance. Lose and it gets a little tricky.

Joe Nuxoll at Center Line Soccer created a really helpful infographic outlining every possible scenario coming out of both Group G matches this afternoon. Check it out.

In short, if we win, we take the group. If we draw, we're most likely in second. If we lose, we need Ghana or Portugal to draw or not win by much. Simple, right?
