Team USA's Exit From the Round of 16, Told Through Tweets


The United States' Men's Soccer Team made history in their game against Belgium, resulting in their elimination from the Round of 16 of the World Cup. They ended the 90th minute with no goals scored for both sides. But football is known for its unpredictability, and true to form, all goals were scored in added time.

The second half of added time showed the world the best football ever played by the Americans. All thanks to their coach, Jürgen Klinsmann.

And then I read the tweets about him. And the tweets about US Soccer. Which made for a great morning read yesterday.

So the final score is 2-1. The Belgians won. The Americans lost.

Wait, scratch that. The Americans lost the game.  But the American public won the Internet. And to celebrate that victory, here are some of my favourite tweets from the American netizens on Twitter.

This is a tweet from the President himself.

This is one of my personal favourites. Buried somewhere under the horrendous spelling is gold. I love this.

There are also tweets from celebrities, of course.

You are no longer relevant, former child star.

But the best tweets come from the regular folk.

Everyone in America loves Tim Howard. Or rather, the whole Internet does.

And finally, a beautiful farewell tweet.
