Thousands Pack Fountain Square for World Cup Party

Thousands of soccer fans lined Market Street and Fountain Square Sunday for a World Cup viewing party hosted by D.C. United.

We were there — and so were many of you — to watch as the U.S. Men’s National team tied with Portugal from Manaus, Brazil. The U.S. was leading 2-1 in the 95th minute and a victory would have vaulted them into the Round of 16. But Portugal’s goal in the final seconds of stoppage time means everything is on the line in Thursday’s noon match against Germany.

Alas, no plans for a giant Reston gathering like this one.
