Photos: U.S. Soccer Fans Stunned as 'Group Of Death Lives Up To Its Name'

The U.S. were just seconds away from becoming the first team from their group to advance to the Round of 16. However, with less than a minute left, Portuguese forward Silvestre Varela saved his team from elimination, heading in a beautifully crossed ball by the great Cristiano Ronaldo.

Pure joy quickly turned dramatically into broken American hearts. A tie is not supposed to feel like a loss, but being so close from escaping the toughest group in the tournament and confirming a spot in the next round, is truly a tough pill to swallow.

Don't put those heads down, though! The Yanks, whom are atop of Group G with Germany, are still in a good position to advance. Good things will come, America, if the belief stays alive!
