The Americans’ run at the World Cup is over, thanks a 2-1 loss to Belgium. World Cup fever had been spreading over the past couple of weeks, and so the United States’ elimination is a real bummer for die-hards and the bandwagon fans alike. For fans of the Belgian team, though, today’s game was a classic one: Despite an awesome performance by U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard, they saw their team score twice to advance to the quarterfinals, where Argentina awaits. Daily Intelligencer sent photographers to DUMBO (where U.S. fans watched under the Manhattan Bridge) and to BXL Zoute (where Belgium fans gathered for the match). See the agony and the ecstasy from those spots below.
