AL RAYYAN, Qatar (AP) — The United States soccer team captivated the nation with its brief World Cup run. That run ended Saturday with a 3-1 loss to the Netherlands in the round of 16.

The second-youngest team at the tournament played only four games but it was enough to thrill diehard supporters in Doha and briefly unite a fractured nation back home.

Fans gathered outside the stadium ahead of Saturday's match to bond over the American team before they marched in together as a collective fan club.

United States captain Tyler Adams says "the support has been amazing."
