While most of the world focuses on the make or break game between the United States and Germany, Portugal will be in another stadium in Brazil, facing the team from Ghana in their latest matchup at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Both teams are gearing up for a fight, but who will prevail? 

When: Thursday, June 26

Where: Estádio Nacional de Brasilia, Brasília 

Start Time: 9 a.m. PT

Schedule: ESPN2

Live Stream: ESPN

What to Watch For: 

Neither team has control over their fate, even with the outcome of the match. A win for Portugal will not be enough to secure their spot in the round of 16. They will have to annihilate the competition and score four goals on Ghana to counter the four they let through from Germany in their previous game.

Things aren't much brighter for Ghana, either. They tied against Germany in the opener, which means that a secure spot to advance will be difficult to come by. It will be a rough go for either team, with little chance to advance. This means that both teams will come out fighting for what is their last chance at the World Cup, should they not play impeccably in this match. 

With Portugal's injuries running rampant -- Fabio Coentrao, Helder Postiga, and Hugo Almeida are all out this game with injuries -- Ronaldo and Eder have a lot to shoulder during the matchup against Ghana. 

Ghana is not facing nearly as many injuries, but Sully Muntari will be benched after already receiving two yellow cards. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Portugal - (4-3-3) Beto, Almeida, Costa, Alves, Pereia, Meireles, Carvalho, Moutinho, Varela. Ronaldo, Nani

Ghana - (4-2-3-1) Dauda, Afful, Mensah, Boye, Asamoah, Rabiu, Badu; Atsu, J. Ayew, A. Ayew, Gyan
