USA have made every single game entertaining gotta give them that, they are playing awesome this year.

They could actually go to the semi finals this year if not the finals. Who knows? They might even win ;)

Denmark - Japan, Denmark has to win while Japan can live with a draw. Its going to be all or nothing.

Is there a table or the likes showing how the winners of the respective quarters play ?

USA have as much chance at winning the World Cup, as Wales do at winning the World Series of Baseball.

Entertaining is very different to skill level

And National teams are very different from club teams. The US are one of the teams who have made most goals so far and thats a fact. Why would they have less chance at winning this than Italy, Germany or any other big football nation?

Who said anything about Club teams? And just trust me on this one, USA are entertaining to watch but they havent shown the skill level which can match that of Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Argentina. All of these teams have picked there game up and are all looking like World Beaters. Im afraid the US isnt a world beater, although they are definetly entertaining.

Edit: And most goals? they have scored 4 goals in the entire tournament so far, Portugal almost doubled that against Greece.

Edit 2: Did you seriously say Italy might win this year? Ill be surprised if they get out of the group stages.

It all varies from match to match, who would have thought that Switzerland would win against Spain?

The fact is that in the elimination stage the US will meet Ghana. If they manage to win, they will meet Uruguay or South Korea.

After that is the Semi Finals and it takes one moment to turn everything around with an unexpected goal.

So from my viewpoint, seeing the US play in a Semi-Final or Finals is definitely possible :-P

Yeah, they might beat Ghana, but Ghana play some very, very fast football and looked like scoring a good few times against Germany last night. In fact Germany were quite lucky that Ghana just couldnt get one in.
