Portugal and the United States will face off late Sunday afternoon in their next battle to advance in the 2014 World Cup. Portugal will look to rebound after Germany dismantled them 4-0 in the first match. The United States will look to capitalize on the first round win over Ghana and beat Portugal for a second time in their World Cup history. It remains to be seen whether the injuries and suspensions, along with the brutal first round loss, will have Portugal showing the strength of a wounded animal who has nothing to lose. They may be more dangerous than before, as they have no choice but to win, or their World Cup hopes will be dashed.

When: Sunday, June 22
Where: Arena Amazônia, Manaus
Kickoff: 5:00 p.m. ET

Live Stream: Univision
TV: ESPN

Top Players to Look For:
Portugal - Cristiano Ronaldo - Conflicting reports are surfacing about a knee injury that may sideline Ronaldo. As one of the highest profile players in all of the World Cup, this could be a huge hit to Portugal. If Ronaldo makes it onto the pitch, he will be a huge threat. He is one of the most feared attacking players in the world, and possesses the ability to create individual chances for himself.

Heidr Postiga - Rumored to be Ronaldo's replacement if reports of the knee injury are true. He has recorded 29 goals and 69 appearances for Portugal.

Pepe - Portugal will be without one of their top defenders, as Pepe will be serving a suspension after being red-carded in the Germany match.

Portugal's Entire Back Line - With the potential injuries and suspensions, Portugal's entire back line could look suspect.

United States - Clint Dempsey - The United States captain, who became the first American player to score in three World Cups, will be looking to continue his goal-scoring ways against what could be a shaky Portugal defense.

Tim Howard - The goalkeeper, who will earn his 102nd cap, will look to organize the United States team's back line, regardless of who the four starters will be.

Jermaine Jones - Midfielder Jermaine Jones will look to duplicate an outstanding first match performance and allow Michael Bradley more attacking freedom against Portugal.

Jozy Altidore - With Jozy Altidore's hamstring injury lingering, Coach Jurgen Klinsmann is keeping the starting lineup hush-hush.
