    Football can be so cruel -- Portugal substitute Varela scores in the fifth minute of time added on to deny the U.S. a famous World Cup victory on Sunday.This time it was the United States that gave up the dramatic goal.

    The U.S. and Portugal are the final two of the 32 teams to play their second match. Portugal's Silvestre Varela scored on a strong headed goal deep, deep in stoppage time to give Portugal a desperate 2-2 draw with the United States in a key Group G World Cup match at Manaus, Brazil.
    Talk about down to the wire(直到最后一刻). Silvestre Varela of Portugal scores his team's second goal past United States goalkeeper Tim Howard during a World Cup game at Arena Amazonia in Manaus, Brazil, on Sunday, June 22. The goal, scored with less than one minute left to play, led to a 2-2 draw.
The goal, in the 95th minute, came off a cross from Cristiano Ronaldo, who showed no signs of a knee injury that was the subject of much media attention in the buildup to the contest.
Second half strikes by U.S. midfielder Jermaine Jones and striker Clint Dempsey had given the United States a 2-1 lead until Portugal rescued its World Cup chances.

    With a draw, the two teams are still in position to qualify for the knockout round, though the United States, with four points, is in much better shape than Portugal (one point), which must beat Ghana (one point) on Thursday and do so decisively.
Ghana could move on if it wins by several goals and either the United States or Germany loses.
The American goals made up for an early U.S. miscue that allowed Portugal to take a 1-0 lead when Nani scored after a U.S clearance attempt went awry(出差错).
U.S. defender Geoff Cameron tried to knock away a cross but the ball went to a wide-open Nani, who waited for U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard to go down, then slammed home a shot from 6 yards.
Dempsey scored when midfielder Graham Zusi sent a ball toward goal that the U.S. star redirected into the open net.

Portugal, the fourth-ranked team in the world and one of the pre-tournament favorites in Group G, had the possession edge but couldn't muster another shot after the goal until Ronaldo forced Howard to save his long-distance effort.
Ronaldo, who had a week filled with concerns over the tendinitis in his left knee, was quick and showed flashes of the brilliance(才华) that made him world player of the year in 2013. He had several good scoring chances himself but nothing that gave Howard, his former teammate when they played at Manchester United, much to worry over.
Howard had four saves, including an outstanding two-stop sequence on a Nani shot in the first half that he turned off the post and a rebound that he punched(用拳头击打) away while reaching over his head.
The Portuguese team was missing several key players Sunday. Portugal was missing defender Pepe through a red card suspension and striker Hugo Almeida and defender Fabio Coentrao, who were injured.
Dempsey was playing with a broken nose that he said made it hard to breathe in the Americans' 2-1 dramatic win over Ghana. After the match he said he made it through Sunday's contest without problems.
The game was played in the heat and humidity of the Amazon rainforest. The heat index was 93 degrees at kickoff and the weather seemed to have an effect on the pace of the game as the match moved into the second 45 minutes.
That half was played at a much more measured pace until after the U.S. goals, when Portugal needed a score to keep from being eliminated from the tournament.
Monday features four matches, two in Group A and two in Group B, as several teams battle for spots and seedings in the next round while others that have been eliminated let some reserves get in a World Cup match.

Despite the endless running and fighting, never-say-die South Korea had to accept the heavily failure or lost and let Algeria kept hopes of securing a spot in the last 16 alive and triggered celebrations across the Arab nation.
Algeria opened the goal scoring floodgates swamping South Korea 4-2 in a thrilling World Cup Group H clash on Sunday .

A late goal from teenage substitute Divock Origi gave Belgium a hard-fought Group H victory over Russia at a sun-kissed Marcana Stadium Sunday.
The 19-year-old striker pounced on Eden Hazard's cut-back to drive the ball high into the net past Igor Akinfeev, sending Marc Wilmots' team into the last 16 of the World Cup with a game to spare.
In what was largely a tepid and tame match, Belgium controlled much of the possession -- although it was Russia who had the better of the early play and chances.
