UPDATE: Tuesday, July 1 at 4:54 EST
As per standard operating procedure, Rihanna is cheering against the USMNT in the U.S.-Belgium game.
I need a goal in the first half , thank you Belgium!!!!— Rihanna (@rihanna) July 1, 2014
She is, however, pro-Jurgen Klinsmann.
Even though I love me some Jurgen Klinsmann— Rihanna (@rihanna) July 1, 2014
I consider this a wash, but if she tweets a picture drinking Belgian beer, well, that's crossing the line. And delicious.

Cheering against the U.S.—so hot right now.
Ever the trendsetter, recording artist Rihanna continues her dogged allegiance to any team playing against the U.S. men's national soccer team in the World Cup.
Like a high schooler donning a Che Guevara shirt, the Barbadian singer has once again strapped on her "anybody but America" boots in honor of Thursday's group play match between the U.S. and Germany.
Germany come onnn!!!— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 26, 2014
Rihanna loves the referee setting that nasty pick on Jermaine Jones.

Yes for Germany goals!
Yes Germany— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 26, 2014
Hey, it's her prerogative, right? Rihanna isn't from the U.S.; she can root for whoever she likes.
With that being said, as I mentioned earlier, there seems to be a common theme with her tweets during U.S. World Cup games.
Thank you Ronaldo for that sweet setup!!! And thank YOU Valera for your timely execution!!— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 23, 2014
Da Bae doe! I might have to be team Ghana on this one idc idc idc pic.twitter.com/3GDQPU5KGe— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 16, 2014
In fairness to Rihanna, she seems to have some close ties with at least Germany.
She also respects the disrespectfully skillful U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard.
We'll call this a draw, Rihanna. You root for whomever you want, but USMNT fans reserve the right to go America all over your timeline if the U.S. pulls this one out.
Now let's win this one for Teddy Goalsevelt!
