Substitute Silvestre Varela headed home the very late leveller to secure a point for Portugal after the USA thought Clint Dempsey's effort in the 81st minute had secured victory.

The draw leaves the USA level with their final Group G opponents Germany on four points.

Ghana and Portugal, however, are both three points off the pace before facing one another.

That means a draw between Germany and the USA would send both nations through to the knockout stages.

Germany are Sky Bet's 1/100 favourites to make it out of Group G, while the USA are also expected to progress at 1/5.

Ghana can be backed at 6/1 for a place in the last 16 and Portugal are available at 8/1.

Sky Bet make Belgium 22/1 to win the World Cup after they beat Russia 1-0 to confirm their progress from Group H.

A first international goal from 19-year-old striker Divock Origi bagged three points for Belgium and now they look ahead to the last 16.

The outright market is still led by hosts Brazil at 100/30.

Germany follow at 7/2, Argentina are priced up at 4/1, while France and Holland can be backed at 8/1 and 10/1 respectively.

Algeria are the 8/11 favourites to join Belgium in making it out of Group H following an impressive 4-2 victory over South Korea.

Russia will make it through if they beat Algeria on Thursday and can be backed at 6/5 to qualify.

South Korea are the big outsiders at 20/1.
