The focal point around the United States on Tuesday was built around the United States Men’s National Team playing in its Round of 16 match against Belgium. Despite taking the contest to extra time, the U.S. fell 2-1 to a stout Belgian attack.
As most Americans felt when Belgium took a 1-0, then a 2-0 lead, Marc Mariani described it perfectly:
Belgium just kicked me in the nuts!!!
