Soccer fans in the United States were ready to celebrate as Team USA's match against Portugal on Sunday entered stoppage time. After all, the team's final match of group play against Germany wouldn't mean as much if the United States held on to beat Cristiano Ronaldo and company.

However, a shocking goal by Paulo Bento's team in the final minute of added time changed everything.

The United States control their own destiny. A draw against Germany would send Team USA on to the knockout stage, and a victory would win Group G. A United States loss, on the other hand, would mean the result of Portugal-Ghana would determine who moves on.

United States fans are hoping that their squad can move past a disappointing draw and come out ready to play against Germany. If you weren't hyped up for Thursday's game already, the video above should do the trick.
