Yesterday in one sentence: Germany and Ghana played to a thrilling 2-2 draw, leading me and many others to wonder whether this means the U.S., which played poorly and still beat Ghana 2-1, is better than I thought, or whether Portugal, who was smoked 4-0 by Germany, is just really bad. What's on tap: Belgium vs. Russia, 12 p.m., ABC; South Korea vs. Algeria, 3 p.m., ABC; United States vs. Portugal, 6 p.m, ESPN. What you'll see: You may understand why I'm particularly concerned with results that directly affect the U.S., which controls its own destiny in the Group of Death.

Yesterday in one sentence: Neither had it as easy as they might have hoped, but Germany and France set up a showdown in the quarterfinal with wins over Algeria and Nigeria. What's on tap: Argentina vs. Switzerland, noon, ESPN; Belgium vs. United States, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: In short, you'll see a lot of white-knuckle Americans. People like me who, despite my momentary lapse in confidence after Portugal, have been beating the U.S. drum for well over a year want so desperately to be proven right and have this team join soccer's elite.

Belmonte, Portugal -- Rabbi Shlomo Sabag walks through the ancient Jewish quarter of Belmonte, pointing out where Jewish houses once stood."Every Jewish house was 'Christianized,' " symbolized by a cross carved on the door jamb, Rabbi Sabag says.Nearly five centuries ago, in 1496, Portugal ordered all Jews -- an estimated 80,000 people -- to convert to Roman Catholicism or leave. A fraction fled. But many of the thousands who stayed and were forcibly converted continued to practice their religion in secret.

Almost from the outset, it was Germany, not Portugal, that showed flair. It was the Germans, a group runner-up, who dominated the Portuguese, a group winner. Bastian Schweinsteiger, coming off a suspension, scored one goal and set up two more last night in Basel, Switzerland, leading Germany over Portugal, 3-2, and into the European Championship semifinals. It was the first time Germany moved into the final four since it won Euros in 1996, and the first time Portugal failed to make the semifinals in the past three major international tournaments.

In Portugal, melancholy is a pastime. Whatever the weather or the unemployment rate, the Portuguese can be found reveling in the most lugubrious musical tradition in Europe. Where else on this continent do you see casas de fado?A dictionary definition of fado reads like a list of the bees in Portugal's bonnet: "fate, lot, destiny, doom." Fado is also the name given to folkloric songs that celebrate the misery of urban life. They are robust, wistful, poignant and melodramatic. In Lisbon, they are sung by anyone with the courage to stand up in a bar. In Coimbra, only university students sing fados.

Portugal put on the most dominant performance of the World Cup, routing North Korea 7-0 on Monday in Cape Town. Simao Sabrosa, Hugo Almeida and Tiago scored over an eight-minute span in the second half, after Raul Meireles' 29th-minute goal gave Portugal the lead. Liedson added another in the 81st. Cristiano Ronaldo ended his goalless streak in the 87th minute, and Tiago added his second goal two minutes later. Ronaldo had not scored for his nation in a non-friendly match since the 2008 European Championship.

SUWON, South Korea - Apparently, there isn't much to this World Cup business. Just throw a bunch of guys together - almost any 11 will do - take on a pedigreed European power and walk off the field with a victory. That - implausibly, improbably, impressively - was exactly what the United States did here yesterday, gunning down Portugal with a three-goal barrage in the first half and then hanging on to win, 3-2, in front of a disbelieving crowd of 37,306. The unexpected result drew immediate comparisons with two other American World Cup upsets: the 1-0 victory over England in Brazil in 1950 and the 2-1 victory over Colombia at California's Rose Bowl in 1994.

Adam Gershowitz, 25, stood inside a bar at Power Plant Live! a half hour before the United States was set to take on Germany on Thursday. He was decked out in American gear, highlighted by a pair of red, white and blue suspenders he got as a birthday gift. “Our destiny is in our own hands,” Gershowitz said. The grounds weren't too packed to begin with, but as the game approached fans started to trickle into the outdoor area. They watched on a 20-foot projection screen as the United States lost 1-0 . Fans moaned when Germany scored, cheered whenever the U.S. got near the goal and breathed a sigh of relief when the Americans were able to advance into the knockout round despite the defeat.

WASHINGTON -- The United States maintained its men's soccer perfection in the Olympic Games last night.Eleven appearances, 11 exits after the first round.As coach Bruce Arena said afterward, they went down fighting, but a 1-1 tie in a must-win situation against Portugal wasn't enough to lift the U.S. team out of Group A. The visitors needed only the draw to advance, and they were more conservative than Rush Limbaugh. The U.S. team had a 21-10 advantage in shots and a 16-6 bulge in corner kicks.

PATRAS, Greece - It was just a soccer game, and they can't send all that electricity generated by 1,000 Iraqi fans here last night to Baghdad, but Iraq's 4-2 upset victory over Portugal in the Olympic soccer tournament was a lot more than could fit on a bumper sticker. It was a surprising result: Portugal entered the Games a gold-medal contender; Iraq was an Olympic qualifier for the first time in 16 years. And, of course, it was a celebratory moment for a nation in need of a reason to party.

From: Portugal Price: $12 Serve with: Light seafood, by itself It's rare to find a vinho verde - the famously light and refreshing "green" white wine of Portugal - that isn't delightful, but this is one of the best of the breed. And there's no better time to quaff these wines than in the spring and summer. This version is lightly effervescent, with a lively acidity that wakes up the palate. It combines lime and peach flavors with a whiff of sea breeze. Somehow it manages to be both ethereal and penetrating.
