U.S. Falls to Germany 1-0 But Advances in World Cup

U.S. Falls to Germany 1-0 But Advances in World Cup

The U.S match against Germany went on despite the rain. 

The U.S. held Germany throughout the first half of the match. But early on in the second half Germany's Thomas Muller scored. The U.S. goalkeeper was able to deflect the first shot on goal, but with a second try, Germany was able to score. 

Going into the game, U.S. and Germany needed a tie to move on to the next round of play. 

The U.S. played tough through the end of the game, with a goal attempt in the last few minutes. 

Despite today's loss, Team USA is moving on in the World Cup. The U.S. earned their way out of the "Group of Death." Germany is also moving on to the next "knock out" round of play. 

The U.S. will face off against Belgium or Algeria in their next game. 

Thousands of eager Americans have set work aside today to watch the U.S. men's soccer team play.

Fans flocked to official watch parties in places like Chicago's Grant Park and Washington's Dupont Circle, and many more took part in boss-approved, morale-boosting breaks at the office.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation hosted a party for its staff of about 100 with a TV and food. Matt Rogers of the Washington-based Urban Institute, which held a party for its 400 employees, says the World Cup is a great way to build office relationships.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann even posted an online note for people to give to their bosses. It asked managers to excuse staff to watch the game for the good of the nation.
