What a determination, how much heart they put on this game... Coaster, you can be proud of your team.

Although Belgium totally deserved it. Can't wait for their game against Argentina.

Good game i would say a little to late for USA to press this game, end the end only 10 min of game pressing isnt good enough Brave from them. Belgium took the brake off, and they shouldnt

Couldn't they play like this from the beginning?! They had to make us sit through 90 minutes of boring football to finally show us some interesting football?!!

They couldnt as belgium where much fresh and There players would have done a lot of damage. THey could press this well because of Belgium was on brake and it was their biggest mistake

Guys all in all you did a great WC, that has to be said. Without Donovan, without any bigger names... Of course you're now disappointed but when this feeling leaves you, you will be proud of your boys, surely.

For the most part I am. Getting through a group where only 5 people on this forum "voted" for them to advance... and I wasn't one of them. Klinnsmann has his work cut out for him and I think the younger players up and coming will be well-prepared for the future.

Too bad for the USA but Belgium deserved it. If they only had Donovan things may had been different, that guy always appear when he's most needed.

It's obvious this was a young team unprepared for the big moment. Didn't help that Johnson went down, but Yedlin did fine offensively from what I saw.

It was a great game. The US will have some youth academies finally turn out products in the near future. Well played Belgium.

They played with heart in the entire game man, that was obvious... Belgium probably attacked more but USA defended very well and also has been impressive in overall in this World Cup and gotta give them credit about this. If only that guy would score that amazing chance in the late mins of the regular time... that's only IF... well hell fans of USA must be proud of their team!

If De Bruyne keeps developing like this, his shooting is still a bit off, he can be another Hazard for Belgium. Howard kept USA in the game, kudos to him.

So all the group winners progress?

We really need to get Kevin De Bruyne but i am sure of a lot of Top teams will get him

- - - Updated - - -

7-0 is a bit to much and now its 2-1 but lets see what happens

Too late for that mate, Wolfsburg ain't too shabby to let him go already, big mistake by Chelsea.

De Bruyne is already more decising then Hazard is for Belgium.


Either way, amazing win. Hard 120 mins, but what a game. Monstereous efforts and a godmode Howard. He saved 16 shots. Most on a WC since 50 years, kudos for his performance.

Courtois :Beast
Alderweireld :Amazing game, great defensive and a boss crosspass
Kompany :Superbeast
Van Buyten :Beast, amazing game
Vertonghen :From zero to hero. Amazing rushes, shots, offensive great, defensive great.
Witsel :Issues with Jones and Bradley, but nevertheless decent
Fellaini :Same as Witsel, could've done more offensive
De Bruyne : :fap:
Hazard :Good game, bit too selfish, but good regardless
Mertens :Offensive meh, defensive did his work, not good tho
Origi :What a boss, technique, stamina, speed, determination, amazing shot. Great player

Subs :

Mirallas : Should've scored at least twice. After those chances, he vanished and lost all balls
Lukaku :Give him space and he bombs it. Amazing sub and great goal
Chadli : /

Wilmots :Finally a team on the pitch. We played amazing, yet we need to be more efficient, nevertheless Howard really saved USA mostly.

We can beat Argentina with this attitude. Fuck Messi

Well USA could've won in the last 30 seconds of regular time when that absurd missed goal happened...
Then they went 2 goals under in extra and I thought they're done mentally and physically, but shit was I wrong! Belgium was only able to score because Lukaku was fresh against a very tired defense (played the full 90 under attack). I don't agree that most brush it off as a deserved win; that US team I saw, especially after going down 2-0, deserved to go to penalties.

I think in a couple days I'll look back and smile... it's just easy to look right now and know everyone gets to "laugh" at USA again like usual. :palm:

I think you'll look back and see that USA gained a lot of respect from this tournament. I know it's rough right now, it'll pass in a few days

Almost everyone here was rooting against USA when reading this thread. They all get to enjoy this result except me and a few others.
