Video: Americans Go Wild Over John Brooks Game-Winning Goal

Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock for the last 20 hours, you’re probably aware that the U.S. pulled off a thrilling 2-1 win in their World Cup opener against Ghana yesterday.

Clint Dempsey got the party started with a nifty goal just 30 seconds into the game, making it the fifth-quickest opening score in World Cup history. As awesome as that goal was, the real party for the USMNT and Americans everywhere wouldn’t get started until about 86 minutes later.

It was then that, just minutes after Ghana’s Andre Ayew equalized Dempsey’s goal, 21-year-old John Brooks knocked an eight yard header from Graham Zusi’s corner kick into the net.

As anyone who watched the game from a sports bar or public place can attest, America lost its collective mind when Brooks scored. Want to see what a nation completely united in celebration looks like? Check out this awesome video produced by YouTube user Polymerizations:
