The United States has been taken over by World Cup fever on Tuesday as Team USA plays Belgium in the round of 16.

Fans in Chicago went to Soldier Field to watch the match on the big screen. When the gates opened, they stormed onto the field for prime spots. However, at some point after the national anthems were played, the stadium's video boards stopped working. 

Just how many fans were there?

Yikes. That's a lot of unhappy people.
