The 2014 FIFA World Cup is over for the United States as eight nations still believe their team will be named World Cup Champions on July 13. The United States lost to Belgium, 2-1, in extra time on Tuesday in the Knockout Round of 16.
While the end result of this final game for the Americans has been talked about continuously for the past two days one play seems to have been conveniently overlooked, especially by ESPN. Don’t get me wrong the worldwide leader has discussed this play from time to time, but it is even left out of Bob Ley’s tournament recap.
