The United States only tied England during the World Cup game Saturday, but for American fans it felt like a major win anyway.
For the Brits, the tie game felt more like a stinging defeat.
KnightNews.com got this YouReport video, submitted via our South Africa Bureau:
You can see most fans expected America to lose. Because the USA beat expectations, that’s why so many are calling this tie a win.
“Nobody gave USA a chance, and I’ll tell you right now it’s opening up a whole new spectrum,” one English fan told NY1 news.
At the University of Central Florida in Orlando, students were celebrating the win on Facebook.
Rachel Taback posted: “♥ Only in America, dream in red, white and blue ♥ GO USA!!”
Others showed their pride by posting expletives, including, “AMERICA F–K YEA!”
KnightNews.com will work to gather more video and post it here when we get it.
