SAU PAULO, BRAZIL (CNN) - It was an epic finish, but it's all over for Team USA.
The World Cup dream came to a crashing halt against Belgium, despite a record setting performance from goalie Tim Howard.

We were right in it, and we could be talking about a whole different scenario this morning, but it wasn't to be.”
