Local fans celebrate, agonize over USA World Cup match

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - Soccer fans all across the state rooted Team USA on against Portugal at the World Cup, especially the American Outlaws at the Bourbon House in Salt Lake City.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - As the U.S. Men's National Team took to the pitch against Portugal Sunday afternoon, there were no doubt hundreds of watch parties all across Utah.

But perhaps no party was crazier than the one hosted by the American Outlaws, the largest group of U.S. supporters, at the Bourbon House in Salt Lake City.

Hundreds of fans packed the downtown bar to watch USA play Portugal to a thrilling 2-2 draw.

After falling behind 1-0 at the half, the U.S. rallied to take a 2-1 lead behind goals from Jermaine Jones and Clint Dempsey.

But on the final play of the match, Portugal leveled the match on a header by Varela.

The U.S. could have clinched a spot in the Round of 16 with a win, but can still advance to the knockout round with a win or a tie against Germany on Thursday.

Good 4 Utah's Dana Greene ventured into the madness at the Bourbon House for a World Cup experience he won't soon forget.
