HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

What will it take to take the U.S. soccer team to the knockout stage?

According to ESPNFC, there are three potential outcomes that will allow the U.S. to qualify for the last 16: a win or a draw against Germany; a loss and a Portugal-Ghana draw, or a loss and win tiebreaker versus the winner of the Portugal-Ghana match.

If the U.S. and Germany draw on Thursday, both will advance to the knockout stage regardless of Ghana and Portugal's result.
