An incredible win for Team U.S.A.!
Fans across the nation and world were overjoyed as well as stunned with Team U.S.A's win over Ghana. The game started off with an epic goal in less than 30 seconds by U.S. player Clint Dempsey and continued to shock World Cup fans until the end. After the first goal, which was the fastest by an American in World Cup history, Ghana tried to bring themselves back in the lead.
Here's a visual recap of the goal.
Earlier, President Barack Obama had led the country in encouraging Team U.S.A to go all the way on the field.
The U.S. women's soccer team also chanted for the boys to become champs.
It was looking slim until the game was close to its end. Andre Ayew scored for Ghana. Team U.S.A was looking tired out. Kevin Prince Boateng and Michael Essien were off the field, on the bench. Then...John Brooks came up for a corner. With a move that brought people cheering, tweeting and posting like mad, he scored his first goal in international football at the U.S. open for the World Cup.
