Monday evening provided one of the top theatrical moments in sports this year. Just 29 seconds into the United States’ first World Cup match of the year, Clint Dempsey fired the opening salvo, putting the U.S. up 1-0 over Ghana. However, in the 82nd minute, Andre Ayew tied the game 1-1, leaving American soccer fans a nervous wreck. Four minutes later, former Maryland Terrapin Graham Zusi delivered a corner kick that was headed in by John Brooks and sent America into a frenzy.
Take a look at how Americans reacted to those goals.
