Could Hollywood have created a better script?
USA were seconds away from knocking out Portugal only for Portugal to snatch life from the jaws of death; they’re still in it. But their chances of progression remain slim.
The night began well for Portugal with Nani capitalizing on a USA mistake to give his side the lead; but a fightback in the second half looked like knocking out Cristiano Ronaldo and co.
In fact, goals from Jones and Dempsey got Twitter worked up; from Mike Tyson to Jim Ross, World Cup fever swept the USA in a blaze of national pride.
But then, right at the death, Varela snatches a draw. Incredible.
Bloody hell, this World Cup just entered warp drive
