Jermaine Jones added his name to the list of heroes that have emerged for U.S. Soccer at the 2014 World Cup.

With the United States trailing Portugal in the second half, Jones produced the equalizer with a stunning right-footed shot from outside the penalty area. The shot, coming after a U.S. corner kick, froze Portugal goalkeeper Beto as it blazed into the net at the far post in the 64th minute.
