Well, the US is out of the World Cup. It was a disappointing loss to Belgium that went into extra time before the first goal was even scored, ending in 2-1 at the end of 120 minutes.
But despite the loss and the disappointing, I would like to talk about the USMNT highlights.
The man is a national treasure. 16 saves in a single game is the highest since 1966. We wouldn't have even had the chance for extra time if it weren't for this brick wall of a human being. He is, hands down, one of the top 5 goalkeepers in the world. God bless him.
He, a kid who turned 19 less than a month ago, got his first appearance tonight and was the one who made that goal for us. Huge shoutout for that goal and for making me feel like an utter failure at life.
He made the game-winning goal against Ghana as a substitute. The goal was a header off a corner kick from another substitute. Freaking awesome.
This would be the substitute who kicked to John. Also, HE'S SO PRETTY.
Two words: The hair.
Do I even need to say it? He's the captain. He's a badass. He scored a goal in 32 seconds. He shook off a bloody and broken nose like it was a hangnail. Sorry, Patrick, I have a new favorite Dempsey.
God bless America.
One nation, one team.
This is just the beginning for US Soccer. 2018. Russia, they're coming.
