The US vs. Portugal soccer game on Sunday made some grumpy and others glad. Twitter revealed that you don’t have to be a soccer fan to support the teams playing at the 2014 Fifa World Cup. 

The score was 2 to 1 in favor of the USA, but 10 seconds before the end of the game, Portuguese winger Silvestre Varela evened out the score with a goal. 

Soon after the match, celebrities took to Twitter to express their support and encouragement for the US team. 

Justin Timberlake tweeted: “What a match. 30 seconds away from advancing! Still, we control our own destiny… #IBelieve” 

“One Tree Hill” actress Sophia Bush simply said “Damn,” and Sarah Hyland from “Modern Family” tweeted “We didn’t lose. A point’s a point. So proud of our team.” 



Rihanna, however, was supporting the Portuegese team. She tweeted: “Thank you Ronaldo for that sweet setup!!! And thank YOU Valera for your timely execution!!”

The US will next play Germany on Thursday, June 26, at 12 p.m.. The game will be broadcasted live on ESPN.
