America is catching soccer and World Cup fever and McMenamin's Theater was packed with USA fans watching the important game.
Though they would have liked a win, instead of the 1-nil result against Germany, soccer players with Bend FC Timbers are happy.
"I'm super stoked that they made it to the knock out round. If we can tie anytime then we're good out there. I'm really excited USA beat the group of death, which are really good teams. They played well and they just fought and fought. They made it through. It was a great game today even though Gemany got a goal. It was cool."
"We did really well. I'm stoked. But we needed better possession. We could have won if we had had better possession. I'm stoked. We have a great goal keeper and if it wasn't for his saves, we wouldn't be here."
"I think they can beat Belgium and go on to the quarter finals or semi finals. Go USA! USA fought to be there and they deserve to be there. Go USA! Go USA! America!"
USA will play Belgium Tueday afternoon in the next round.
