The U.S. came really, really close to beating Portugal but settled for a 2-2 draw after a 95th-minute goal by Silvestre Varela. SI’s Grant Wahl has a recap of the game and look ahead to Thursday’s match against Germany. The above photo summed up the reaction of every American fan (a group that now includes Piers Morgan!) watching the game. Cristiano Ronaldo (and his zig-zag hair) were held in check most of the game until he set up the tying goal. Both his girlfriend (Irina Shayk) and stalker were likely impressed with his never-give-up attitude (as was potential NBA lottery pick Joel Embiid). The U.S. attempts to qualify for the next round on Thursday, which should give Samsung enough time to realize Landon Donovan isn’t on the team.

Padres reliever Alex Torres became the first pitcher to wear a protective cap in a major league game. It’s big and extremely awkward, but safety is always the first priority.
