US Report - USA denied by Portugal and Melo opts out in New York

Published Add your comment

GiveMeSport brings you the latest from the world of US sport.

We begin with the World Cup and the US Men’s national team last night came within seconds of securing their qualification to the knockout phases with a game to spare.

After falling behind early, second-half goals from Jermaine Jones and Clint Dempsey had given USA the lead. But a header from Portugal’s Silvestre Valera five minutes into injury time meant the game finished 2-2.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s men face Germany in their final group game knowing a point is enough to qualify.

In the NBA meanwhile reports suggest Carmelo Anthony has chosen to opt out of his contract with the New York Knicks and become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The seven-time all-star will have no shortage of suitors but it seems that the Chicago Bulls are the early favourites to secure his signature.

And finally in baseball, the Milwaukee Brewers picked up their fourth straight win last night as they overcame the struggling Colorado Rockies 6-5.
