Americans Are Really, Really Excited About Their World Cup Win

Nobody was more shocked to see then US men's soccer team take a win against Ghana than, well, Americans. The sport — which is assumed to be largely ignored in the US until the World Cup rolls around — proved to be a highly-watched and action-packed event. 

After Clint Dempsey scored one of the fastest goals of all time (just 32 seconds into the match!) during the June 16 game, America went on to win 2-1 against Ghana. People from all over the country celebrated the victory: rowdy bar patrons, excited sports casters and even an eager pooch. 

Luckily, some people were wise enough to whip out their cell phone and capture video of these awesome victories and their even better reactions. Take a look at some of our favorite World Cup reactions below, and tell us which one is your favorite!
