One fan said the energy was electric at the bar near 10th and P Streets.

“You know, it’s electric,” Joe Cruz said. “It feels so good playing, I don’t even know the people sitting next to me but we’re high-fiving, we’re family now. They’re coming over for Thanksgiving next year.”

The U.S. is now set to face the Netherlands on Saturday at 9:00 a.m.
