BOISE -- More than 1,000 people gathered in a downtown Boise plaza to watch the US take on Belgium in the World Cup.

Fans across the country Tuesday gathered in public spaces, bars and sports stadiums to watch the U.S. try to move deeper into the tournament.

Boise's crowd showed their patriotic spirit, either with painted faces, flag-themed clothing or wrapped in oversized American flags at the Grove Plaza, braving 90-degree temperatures as they watched the U.S.'s fourth game in Brazil.

The game went to extra time after each team failed to score in regulation. Belgium scored 2 goals in the extra time, while the Americans got a goal from Julian Green in the 107th minute, but the Americans couldn't muster another to send the match to a penalty shootout.
