Photos: Reaction Shots of U.S. and German Soccer Fans Watching the World Cup Game

Fans of both the U.S. and Germany could cheer this afternoon’s World Cup results. The powerhouse German squad beat the Americans 1-0 to win Group G and advance to the knockout stage. And despite the loss, the Americans advanced out of the Group of Death, too, thanks to a superior goal differential over Portugal. Daily Intelligencer sent photographers to German beer garden Zum Schneider and to Nike’s “Hall of Phenomenal” pop-up to capture the reactions of German and American supporters.
