Germany has beaten the United States at the World Cup, but the U.S. team is still advancing.
Thomas Mueller scored his fourth goal of the tournament to lead Germany to the 1-0 win. Still, the U.S. moves on to the knockout stage despite the loss, as Portugal beat Ghana, 2-1.
Both teams knew before kickoff that a draw would see them through, but neither held back.
