World Cup Soccer – The United States Team Is Out

Posted on July 2, 2014 in Professional Sports News.

The United States’ World Cup journey came to a heartbreaking end after the Stars and Stripes dropped a 2-1 extra-time decision to Belgium in the Round of 16.

The two nations battled to a scoreless tie through regulation, but the Belgians scored in both the 93rd and 105th minutes to send the Americans home despite a sensational 16-save effort from goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Belgium will next face Argentina, who claimed a 1-0 win over upstart Switzerland in yesterday’s other match.
