The U.S. doesn't kick-off for a few more hours, but they just got some good news: Their opponent for Sunday (Portugal) will be Pepe-less as the defender lost his cool and headbutted Germany's Thomas Muller as he was already sitting on the ground. The pointless act followed what appears to be a flop (so part most of us is totally cool with this move). The shot was met with an automatic red card, a subsequent ejection, and (as we just mentioned) he'll also miss Sunday's game against the States.

Even though they haven't taken the field yet, the U.S. already gets a lucky break. Now they only need about 250 more for a championship to be a realistic possibility!
