Howard, post-game: "“It’s heartbreaking. I don’t think we could have given any more. We were beaten by a really good team. It hurts. It’s my job, that’s what I sign up to do. Hats off to Belgium, but we gave a valiant effort.”
We have the power, Czuch!

Here's the run-down for the final eight...
What a day. Another superb game in what's been the best World Cup for quite some time.
U.S. deserved to lose, on balance, but Tim Howard and Julian Green offered plenty of hope. Belgium's class showed in the end, when it mattered most.
