WWC: U.S. vs. Brazil instant analysis

This is the big one: which team can bear the pressure? The U.S. hadn't lost in 17 group games dating back to 1991 before the defeat to Sweden on Wednesday that set up this mouth-watering encounter with Brazil on Sunday.

Opinion about Pia Sundhage's USWNT has been swinging around like a weathervane in Kansas in the past year; a quarterfinal exit would be another unwelcome first. Having lost the last two Olympic finals to U.S. teams, the Brazilians would be more than happy to oblige. Both teams have tended to be better in the second half -- only scoring one goal each before half time in six group matches. Will this produce a slow burner, or will both coaches look to change that?
