Pfffff. I thought you were excellent. It's a team of very limited ability up against a very good Belgian side. Belgium might not have been slamming goals in but they've been very, solid extremely hard to score against and winning, just like they did in qualifying.

The organisation and exceptional work rate of the players and the Secretary of Defence kept you in the game, and you had chances to take it to penalties at the end.

Getting out of that group and being in the game against Belgium on 120 mins is better than anyone in the world expected before the tournament. You guys should be proud of the team.

The pundits on our TV were gushing about the US team, not for the quality of play, but the determination, teamwork, never say die attitude. Extra time was probably the most entertaining 30 mins of the tournament.
