HELP! I don't understand this World Cup scoring...

Okay, so as an American I am of course cheering for team USA. Even though we don't really stand a chance in hell, but you know, it's my country.

So, we lost rather patheically to Poland today. But I think I read online that we are still ranked second in the group. What do we need to advance? I don't understand these rules about how other teams have to win or lose to determine if your team goes on...

What's the deal? What does the US need to advance to the next round? I don't think we will, but I was curious.

its simple..

Korea won 2 ( port, pol) , drew 1(USA) and lost none
USA won 1 (port), drew 1(korea) and lost 1(pola)

portugal won 1 (poland) and lost 2 (USA,korea) each..
poland won 1( USA) and lost 2 (korea, portugal) each..


and 2 from this group of 4 is supposed to advance..so KOREA & USA advanced..

Yeah, I actually just read somewhere else that we had advanced. Now we play Mexico. But thank you for explaining the logistics of it.
