SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Pop singer Jennifer Lopez may be thinking life is funny after a group of scientists named a water mite in her honor after discovering a new species near Puerto Rico.

With the U.Ssitting on four points in the group standings (three points for its win over Ghana and one for its tie against Portugal), it will come down to Thursday’s games to determine if the team will go on to the next round of the World Cup.
