USA Celebrates Despite World Cup Loss, Reaches Knockout Round (Photos)

fansIt wasn’t pretty, but the United States is moving on to the knockout round of the 2014 World Cup despite losing to Germany 1-0 on Thursday afternoon.

Thomas Muller scored his fourth goal of the World Cup in the 55th minute to propel the Germans to victory, taking Group G in the process.

Heavy rainfall created quite the scene in Recife, Brazil, making things interesting until the final whistle. The U.S. had its chances, including two at the end of stoppage-time, but couldn’t break through and was held scoreless for the first time in this year’s tournament.
