USA v Japan Gave These American Fans All The Feels

With a final score of 5-2, the American team sealed a third World Cup victory and shut down Japan's quest to be the second country in history to achieve a second consecutive win. And if it felt to you like the entire world was glued to their seats on Sunday night to watch the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team beat Japan in the 2015 FIFA World Cup, it's because the whole world was indeed watching. The United States may be arriving late to the worldwide love affair with soccer, but the 2015 Women's National Soccer Team has captivated American fans and given us all a heady dose of World Cup Fever.

Forget fireworks and hamburgers: If I need to feel warm and tingly about the U.S. of A., just give me a major, international sporting event. The potent combination of a U.S. team stacked with champions, a history of dominance to defend, and a focus on empowering young women and girls is exactly what keeps American fans glued to their seats. If the Independence Day holiday wasn't enough to get your patriotic juices flowing, watching the 2015 FIFA World Cup — and a quick search on Twitter or Instagram — would certainly do the trick.

World Cup Fever is real. If you don't believe me, just take a look at these 15 photos of American fans losing their minds during the 2015 FIFA World Cup match between the U.S. and Japan.
