The USMNT has done the impossible, they survived the group of death. Normally a 1-0 loss would be a bad thing, but thanks to Portugal's win over Ghana, the US advances to the knockout stage (you can send your thank you letters to Ronaldo). There's still no known cure for World Cup fever, so in case you missed it, here were some of the reactions from the USMNT's match against Germany.
Redskins Tyler Polumbus takes patriotism very seriously.
I can only assume you hate America if you tweet something that doesn't have to do with the game right now— Tyler Polumbus (@Tyler_Polumbus) June 26, 2014
The German head coach kinda looks like a bond Villain— Chris Chester (@chesterchris66) June 26, 2014

After the match, some of the USMNT members celebrated their win via social media.
Unreal support from every corner of our country. YOU are what pushes us on. Truly feel the weight of the best fans in the world behind us— Graham Zusi (@gzusi) June 26, 2014
Back in Sao Paulo and our home away from home. Proud to be through Group of Death, but we aren't done yet !! #1N1T— Jürgen Klinsmann (@J_Klinsmann) June 27, 2014
The World Cup is on a brief hiatus on Friday and will resume play on Saturday. The US faces Berlin on July 1st, so fans have time to catch their breath, refresh their face paint, and pray to the soccer gods before the red white and blue take on the round of 16.
