Something beautiful happened online last night: America started to care about a soccer. Putting aside their obsession with ‘handegg’ and Donald Sterling-ball, the U.S. community on Twitter all rooted for Team USA as they valiantly fought against Portugal.

While the end result was a draw, the U.S. fans clearly won out. With costumes including a fan dressing up as former President Teddy Roosevelt.

Others to simply went mad with joy at a goal.

While the fans at the stadium went literally wild, Twitter was also abuzz with America’s new-found interest in the beautiful game and tried to understand it.

When the going got tough, and Portugal equalised in the very last few seconds of injury time, however, the mood turned ugly.

Some were just confused.

But at least Buzzfeed was on side to console the upset American fans.
