ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
President Barack Obama congratulated the U.S. soccer team on advancing to the next round in the World Cup on Thursday (June 26).
He watched the match against Germany aboard Air Force One on his way to Minnesota.
"They are defying the odds and earned a lot of believers in the process," President Obama told a town hall in Minneapolis.
Even though the U.S. team was defeated by Germany 1-0, but both teams will continue in the tournament.
