The United States may have been eliminated from the World Cup after losing to Belgium, but that isn't stopping our favorite celebrities from sharing their support of the brilliant effort given by the athletes on the team.
We'll start with Tom Hanks, who posted a photo on WhoSay of his family getting anxious for the game. "Oh yes. We are watching! US of A! Go! Hanx's," he captioned the shot, which includes sons Colin and Chet and wife Rita Wilson. Hanks also wrote, "Tim Howard remains a god."
After the team lost 2-1 in extra time, tons of celebrities congratulated them for their run in the world tournament. Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul wrote on Twitter, "Yes, It was a loss but USA you f---ing killed it just now. Thought I would remind you of that. #WorldCup."
