With the win, the US has now won three World Cup titles — in 1991, 1999 and 2015 — under its belt.
As previously discussed on The Herd Report; I got to experience the atmosphere in NYC and around the world first hand during the World Cup. When Landon Donovan lead the American Outlaws on their 2010 run in the World Cup people were paying attention but it was mainly just soccer enthusiasts watching. The USA-Portugal match during the 2014 World Cup registered 18.2 million viewers on ESPN, with the USA Belgium match surpassing 20 million.
We learned that Goalkeeper Tim Howard is The Man and according to twitter that we want him to run for president in 2016.
But that President Obama called Tim Howard to tell him to shave his beard and that the position of secretary of defense has already been filled, even if he had a record setting 16 saves against Belgium. We also learned that Clint Dempsey is unstoppable on the pitch (President Obama called him too).
The United States also advanced farther in the tournament than England after coming out of the challenging group of death; reminding all American's just in time for Independence day whose still in charge 238 years later. Coach Klinsmann showed us that while he initially annoyed America by not giving Landon Donovan a roster slot, publicly denounced the teams ability to win the whole tournament, and is not a big fan of MLS players; that he actually knows what he is doing.
Most importantly we learned that if the 2010 World Cup run set the stage for this much excitement in 2014, The United States is well on its way to becoming a soccer nation in the coming years.
Back home, America was paying attention - just as it was last year and despite the rest of the Olympic events. The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline.

AP PhotoUnited States players warm up during a training session in preparation for the final match against Japan for the Women's Soccer World Cup Final in Frankfurt, Germany, Saturday, July 16, 2011.
Japan is playing in the first final of a major tournament after stunning two-time defending World Cup champion Germany, the pre-tournament favorite, in extra time in the quarterfinals.
The Nadeshiko have never beaten the Americans, with draws in 2000, 2003 and 2004 the best they've been able to manage in 25 games. AP PhotoUnited States head coach Pia Sundhage talks to the media during a training session in preparation for Sunday's final match against Japan of the Women's Soccer World Cup in Frankfurt, Germany, Saturday, July 16, 2011. The Americans will have a significant height advantage on Japan, with five of the expected starters taller than the 1.71-meter Saki Kumagai, Japan's tallest player.
Japan's ball-handling skills are exquisite, drawing comparisons to Barcelona for its lightning quick passes and slick combination play. Sundhage has tried to implement a more possession-oriented style with the Americans, wanting plays to develop through the midfield rather than simply sending long balls up to the forwards.
AP PhotoThe World Cup trophy for the Women's Soccer World Cup 2011 is exhibited at a press conference in Frankfurt Saturday July 16, 2011. Japan is clearly driven by a greater purpose, hoping its success at the World Cup can provide some emotional relief for a nation still reeling from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. Japan has drawn comparisons to Barcelona for its lightning quick passes and slick combination play, and they often look as if they're playing a game of keepaway, holding onto the ball for long stretches of time. Playing in her fifth World Cup, the 32-year-old Sawa has looked ageless, scoring four goals to share the lead in the tournament with Marta. Abby Wambach is one of the best players in the world in the air, and she's scored two goals off headers in the past two games. It was electric like I have never seen it before, especially coming from a bunch of Yanks watching soccer. It appears now though, that the excitement of the 2010 World Cup set the framework for soccer to grow over the last four years. This surpasses the viewership numbers of other events such as MLB's World Series, the NBA Finals, and the NHL Finals.
Dempsey showed that he won't back down even if he gets kicked in the face and breaks his nose.
He brought together a US Men's team that could compete on the global stage and gain the attention of the world.

But the Japanese had no problems challenging bigger and stronger Germany, getting whistled for four yellow cards — the only yellows they've received this tournament.
The final between USA and Japan is scheduled for Sunday.The move gave the Americans more flow and creativity, perfectly illustrated by their third goal, when Rapinoe found a streaking Alex Morgan with a cross that was placed perfectly behind the defense. It's just not the kind of soccer we want to play," said Abby Wambach, who has scored on headers in each of the United States' last two games. They display a banner reading "To our Friends Around the World — Thank You for Your Support," after every game, and Sasaki inspired his players before the quarterfinal by showing them pictures of the devastation. A surprise starter in the semifinal after playing a total of just 29 minutes in the first four games, she scored twice, including a gorgeous lob over Hedvig Lindahl from about 35 yards out. This is a tremendous accomplishment considering the global opinion is normally that American Soccer cant complete with other countries on the pitch. Abby Wambach ran to join the fun in a celebration that unleashed a year of bottled-up frustration.Carli Lloyd scored early in both halves, Solo leaped and dived to make saves, and the entire roster found the redemption it had been seeking since that penalty kick shootout loss in Germany last summer.

Two months later, the teams will play again on Sunday — in the Women's World Cup final. ESPN has said recently that "overall viewership for the World Cup is up 44 percent over 2010. It got bogged down in the midfield against France until Sundhage brought Megan Rapinoe on, putting her on the left flank and moving Lauren Cheney inside. And that's what we did and that's something to be proud of and that's what we take away from it.
The World Cup brought back to America a sense of nationalism I haven't felt in several years. During all this shared excitement between almost everyone I think it is safe to say that the US Men's team taught America a few lessons.
