Nearly 5,000 fans gathered in Grant Park Monday afternoon to watch Team USA defeat Ghana in the team’s first game of the World Cup

With only minutes left in the game, John Brooks came off the bench and scored – the first substitute to ever score for the U.S. in 30 World Cup games. His amazing goal clinched a US victory.

The crowd at Grant Park was electric and energized by a US team that looked like champions.
