Goooooal! And two of 'em!
The United States men's soccer team avenged its previous losses to Ghana in the past two World Cups today in Brazil, beating the African team 2-1 in their opening match and getting a necessary win under their belt.
And you can bet that Team USA's famous fans were super-psyched to see Clint Dempsey score the fastest-ever goal in America's World Cup history, only 30 seconds in, and then watch John Brooks put the match out of reach for Ghana in minute 86.
Here's just a sampling of the delighted response from the celebrity twitterverse:
Go USA! Fastest goal in U.S. World Cup history in the #USAvsGHANA game. 32 seconds! It took me longer to look up where Ghana is.? Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) June 16, 2014

No, it wasn't progressive or new. But I don't care. It was American. It was who we are. It was beautiful. #USMNT? Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) June 17, 2014
