This is the first time in World Cup history that the USA has reached the Knockout round in consecutive tournaments.
"It feels awesome," says Michelle Militello. She was watching the game at Boomer's Sports Bar off Riverside in Rockford. "The last couple minutes were really intense. We were hoping for a goal, but hey we're still qualified, so we're moving on."
"The USA probably going to be in the last four. Not champion, but we gonna be in a nice place," says soccer fan Raul Martin who was also at Boomer's.
The USA will play Belgium on Tuesday, July 1st.
