Apparently, these Brazilians have not heard the news that Neymar is out for the rest of the tournament with a back injury...
German fans far outnumber French at Maracana, and they were partying hours before the match!
Here is what French fans look like outside Maracana stadium in Rio before QF vs Germany...
USA: Howard; Johnson, Gonzalez, Besler, Beasley; Cameron, Bradley, Jones; Zusi, Dempsey (c), Bedoya.
Coach opts not to start Kyle Beckerman, going with Gonzalez and Cameron. Weston's Bedoya back in lineup.
BEL: Courtois; Alderweireld, Kompany, Van Buyten, Vertonghen; Fellaini, Witsel, De Bruyne; Mertens, Origi, Hazard.
Lukaku not starting.
It's a gorgeous sunny day in Salvador...2 hours before USA v BEL kickoff...wonderful, serene scene outside this stadium, where there is a lakeside park filled with friendly, tame American and Belgian fans. Not as noisy as Colombia-Uruguay crowd, but they're having fun! This will give you an idea...
Guess who this guy is rooting for??
These guys BELIEVE!
