FIFA World Cup: USA 2, Portugal 2

Varela rescued Portugal from World Cup elimination with a last-gasp header to force a 2-2 draw with the United States at the FIFA World Cup on Sunday. 

Clint Dempsey looked like he had the winner when he scored in the 81st minute to put the U.S. up 2-1. 

The draw means Portugal is still alive with one match left to play, while the Americans will have to tie Germany in their next match to progress.
