    I can’t comment on the excitement of the game myself, as I failed to wake up to watch it 😛 lol. So thank you for an insight into the game. With the huge crowd attendance I can only imagine the atmosphere would have been buzzing. I will take a look at your link to the match. Who was in goal for USA by the way?
