Defeat would leave the loser facing an anxious wait with Ghana and Portugal both needing to overcome goal deficits to progress.
Scheduling has proved a touchy subject in recent days with Holland manager Louis Van Gaal criticising FIFA for having the Brazil vs. Cameroon game after their own clash with Chile and now USA boss Jurgen Klinsmann has waded in.
The former Spurs star claimed that the scheduling of the group phase gives the top teams an advantage.
“We have one day less to recover. They (Germany) played yesterday, we played today. We played in the Amazon and they played in the very kind of location where they don’t have to travel much,” the former German striker said.
“Everything was done for the big favorites to go and move on. We have to do it the tough way but we’re going to do it the tough way.”
German manager Joachim Low is set to make changes to his side after naming unchanged line-ups for the opening two games. Miroslav Klose and Bastian Schweinsteiger could come into the starting XI after their impressive cameos in the 2-2 draw against Ghana.
Klose equalled the World Cup goal scoring record of Ronaldo when he scored his country’s equaliser in the 71st minute while Schweinsteiger added energy and drive to a German side that looked fatigued.
Sami Khedira, largely ineffective against the Ghanaians and Mario Gotze are the likely players to make way.
While a draw would suit both sides, should such a result occur it would be the first time ever. In nine games to date, Germany has won six with the US winning three.
This will be third time meeting in a World Cup. The first met in 1998 when Klinsmann was amongst the scorers as Germany won 2-0 while four years later they met again with the European’s running out 1-0 winners.
The last time they met was in June 2013 when the US won 4-3, having let slip a 4-1 lead. Eight of the US team on that occasion should line up on Thursday.
