So close ... USA

Julian Green's goal sailing past the Belgium goalkeeper.
The USA 2014 World Cup squad came so close.  It was a motley crew easy to root for. They were plucky, resilient and dogged. Nothing to be ashamed of here. None of our guys spit on or bit anybody, and our team showed it can compete with the better squads in the world. They came up just short, and we're gonna miss 'em.  It would have been fun to see them continue. We're looking forward to 2018.

We'll see how the rest of the World Cup tournament plays out.  It's still fun, interesting and compelling viewing -- Costa Rica, anyone? -- but very soon futbol will take a back seat to football.
