On Wednesday afternoon, U.S. President Barack Obama started off a town hall meeting in Minneapolis by congratulating the U.S. men's national soccer team for advancing to the knockout round of the World Cup on Wednesday during a town hall meeting in Minneapolis.
"I have to begin by congratulating our U.S. soccer team - Team USA - for advancing to the next round of the World Cup...We were in what's called the 'Group of Death' and even though we didn't win today, we were in the toughest grouping, and...we got through, so we still got a chance to win the World Cup! We could not be prouder of them. They are defying the odds and earned a lot of believers in the process and I want everybody on the team to know that all of us back home are really proud of them."H/T 101gg.
