The United States could seal qualification today with victory over Portugal.

Robert Cianflone

Victory over Portugal could have many consequences for Real Madrid's Portuguese players, not least Cristiano Ronaldo with reports in Marca that the club want the player to return to Valdebebas as soon as the game is over should Portugal find themselves without a chance to qualify after this afternoon's game to tend to his knee.

He is not the only injured Portuguese-Madrid player. Coentrao is already home in Madrid and receiving treatment. Pepe will not play against the United States having been sent off for headbutting Thomas Mueller of Germany in the opening game of Group G.

In the opening match of the day, Russia and Belgium will play to see who can top Group H. South Korea and Algeria also play today.
