Because this is 2014 and it’s hot outside, we’ve recapped the match for you in a series of Tweets. Experience the highs and the lows all over again here (in 20 seconds or less):
The Trash Talk
Tim Howard makes a World Cup record 16 saves
But there were a few missed opportunities…
The nerves hit when we went into extra time
