LATEST GOAL IN WORLD CUP HISTORY PROVIDES HEARTBREAKING ENDING FOR US FANS

This is what the World Cup is all about! Down 1-0 after a goal from Nani in the 5th minute it looked weak for the US, the Stars and Stripes seemingly couldn’t get any attacks in in the first half, but the 2nd half was a different story. Just 19 minutes after the restart Jermaine Jones buried an equaliser for the US and then captain Clint Dempsy used his stomach to direct a cross from Zusi into the back of the net  for the  lead, with the win the US would clinch a spot in the knockout stage but when the worlds best player is on the field a 1-goal lead is never safe, and Ronaldo proved that as he made a great pass into the box and with just 20 seconds left in stoppage time Silvestre Varela headed Ronaldo’s cross past US keeper Tim Howard for the latest goal in world cup history, breaking the hearts of every american watching  “He made a great cross,” said Howard “Football’s cruel sometimes.” With the goal the game ended in a tie and sets up a tough test for the US with coach Jurgen Klinsmann having to take on his home country, Germany. “Now we have to go out and beat Germany, that’s what we have to do,”Klinsmann said. “We have to play Germany, we have one less day to recover, we played in the Amazon, they played on a place with less travel. We have to do it the tough way.”

“Obviously we’re disappointed, but at the end of the day you’ve got to look at the positives, we got a point,” said United States captain Clint Dempsey, who scored to give the Americans a 2-1 lead in the 81st. “It’s going down to the last game and hopefully we get the job done.”

It was a thriller,” Klinsmann said. “Everybody who had a chance to be today in Manaus will talk about this game for a long time.”
