RIO DE JANEIRO -- It was a tough loss to swallow for the U.S. In the 93rd minute of the game, Belgium's Kevin De Bruyne managed to edge the ball past U.S. Men's National Team goalie Tim Howard.

From then on out, it seemed the U.S.'s fate was sealed; before that, the game had been a unrelenting volley of failed attempts to get in the net.

Despite 30-minutes of extra time, the U.S. couldn't recover, and lost 2-1 to Belguim on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at the FIFA World Cup.
