Europe will attempt to ride the wave of momentum created via their fourballs comeback when the 41st Ryder Cup gets back underway at Hazeltine. The United States completed a whitewash in the morning foursomes, but inspired by Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke's team reduced the deficit to 5-3 to set up a potentially pivotal second day in Chaska.

McIlroy symbolised everything good about the holders' revival on the first afternoon, with his approach to the 16th and match-winning eagle putt followed by an uncharacteristic roar which could be heard all around Minnesota. The battle cry came at the end of a session where Team USA had been nullified; in stark contrast to their dominance at the start of the day.

The FedEx Cup champion will again be paired with Belgian Thomas Pieters in the top match on Saturday morning, facing Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson. The American pair beat McIlroy in their first foursomes match but were fortunate to escape with a point after trailing for long periods before a spate of birdies.

Henrik Stenson also helped mastermind Europe's comeback but he is faced with the only victorious US pair from Friday afternoon in Brandt Snedeker and debutant Brooks Koepka. England's Matthew Fitzpatrick will make his Ryder Cup bow alongside The Open champion in the second match.

Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson won five holes in a row to win their foursomes match in convincing style - and they will be hoping for a similar outcome against the Olympic champion Justin Rose and the final rookie in the European team, Chris Wood. Rose helped reverse his defeat in the foursomes with victory in the fourballs, but he is yet to produce his best golf this week.

Finally, the foursomes will be brought to a close by the stand-out matchup of the morning. Patrick Reed and Jordan Spieth were mesmeric in the morning but subdued in the afternoon on Friday, and they face the all-Spanish pair of Sergio Garcia and Rafa Cabrera-Bello - who impressed on debut in the fourballs.

The USA have never failed to win the Ryder Cup after winning all four matches in the first session. The last time they did it came under the captaincy of Arnold Palmer, whose passing supporters and players have being paying tribute to this week.

What the captains said:

Davis Love III: I like being ahead. You know, there's no two ways about it. Being ahead's great. Keep telling our guys, there's eight points a day and then there's 12 points on Sunday. It's a long -- there's a lot of points out there still. Even after two days, the Sunday is very, very important.

"We have to set a goal and we have to pace ourselves and we have to be rested. Some guys are going to have to rest in the morning that played very well today. But I need them to be ready for tomorrow afternoon and we need them to be ready for Sunday. You just can't forget about Sunday and getting enough rest and being prepared for that.

"Both sides have seen that; that you can't just focus on the first two days. You have to focus on the third day, and 12 points on Sunday is a big day, as well. So we are trying to rest some guys up and mix it up a little bit. I think we've done that so far."

Darren Clarke: As I'm sitting in my seat right now, in the position we were in at lunchtime, I would definitely say it's better to have a small deficit with some momentum. Because we didn't have much at lunchtime. But that's golf. That's match play; that's professional match play golf. Certainly we managed to wrestle some of that back to the European side this afternoon.

"Teams don't always go the way they want, and especially in our sport and this format. Things change. But the guys, you know, they were disappointed. Of course they were disappointed at lunch time. But were they disappointed to the fact that they were down in the dumps? No. They still believe in what we are doing and they couldn't wait to get back out on the golf course again. That's how good the team were at lunchtime. And in very trying and difficult circumstances, as you could imagine."
