Team USA fans saddened as Belgium pulls through

Email
Belgium and USA soccer fans watched a dramatic World Cup game at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, as Belgium clung on to defeat the United States in another heart-stopping period of extra time on Tuesday (July 1). Belgium dominated normal time and were frustrated by an inspired Tim Howard in the U.S. goal but struck early in extra-time when De Bruyne collected the ball before turning and firing home an angled shot from seven meters. Substitute striker Lukaku powered home a second on 105 minutes after a clever De Bruyne pass before Green's volley at the start of the second period set up a pulsating finale in which Clint Dempsey almost sneaked an equalizer. Belgium took a 2-0 extra-time lead but they had to survive an extraordinary end-to-end finale as the U.S. threatened an equalizer before winning 2-1.
