Folks in The States may not typically be big on soccer, but nearly 20 million of us tuned in to see Team USA take on Germany last week.

This week, the USA entered the knock-out round and lost a hard-fought battle with those waffle eatin’ Belg’uns.

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

The Pre-Funking

The Game:

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

And Belgium scored 

There was a short-lived (but inspiring) comeback

But the US was eliminated after the final whistle blow 

Despite the loss, we think Team USA took everyone by surprise
