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.

She is, however, pro-Jurgen Klinsmann.

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.

Rihanna loves the referee setting that nasty pick on Jermaine Jones.

Yes for Germany goals!

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.

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!

On the Twitters.
