Sports fans were packed into bars all over Texoma to watch the United States face off with Germany in the World Cup. The game was being watched by Americans all across the country. Ed Carnahan was one of the many supporting the U.S. in their World Cup run.

"Last year my son-in-law got me into soccer I've become quiet the phanatic actually its kind of sad took me 44 years to get here," said Carnahan. "I don't know. I really can't explain it. It was just, I don't know, it was an injection shot I got I guess. I wouldn't miss this for the world."

There were others, like Chris Skinner, who actually skipped work just to watch the big game. Skinner said he has been a supporter of U.S. soccer since the 2006 World Cup.

"Boss doesn't really know I'm here. I should be at work, but it's a special occasion. To be in this passion, I mean that's huge. It has got to be the biggest moment in U.S. soccer history," said Skinner.

Even children were in on the action. Lexi Estrada and her father Guillermo did not take their eyes off the screen as the U.S. fought for a spot in the knockout round.

"I'm here to support the USA team you know I'm a big fan since I was little trying to get bring the little on here as well have a good time. You can see soccer is getting bigger and bigger in the U.S. it's the real deal," said Guillermo.

The U.S. ended up losing 1-0 but will advance on points and goals scored. They will play Belgium next Tuesday July 1st.
