Happy America day, Americaland! Today, the United States takes on Portugal in their second World Cup game. With a win, they'll be through to the knockout stage. With a draw, they're still in good shape. With a loss? Well, we don't talk about losses.

Jurgen Klinsmann has made a change, introducing Graham Zusi over Jozy Altidore instead of making a like-for-like switch at striker. Portugal have made a lot of changes due to injury.

Here's the lineups.

United States lineup (4-2-3-1): Tim Howard; DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler, Geoff Cameron, Fabian Johnson; Kyle Beckerman, Jermaine Jones; Graham Zusi, Michael Bradley, Alejandro Bedoya; Clint Dempsey.
