Silvestre Varela 95th Minute Goal Earns Portugal 2-2 Draw vs. United States


Cristiano Ronaldo found Silvestre Varela with a superb cross in the 95th minute. Portugal equalized 2-2 and saved their World Cup. Tough break for the United States, who would have been through the perceived “Group of Death” with a win. A draw is still a good result, but it was so, so close to being a great one.


Eder, who some thought was useless for most of the match, made a crucial play to knock Michael Bradley off the ball and start Portugal’s counter attack.
