    Hundreds of people gathered in Dupont Circle Thursday to watch the U.S. take on Germany at the World Cup.

    The German embassy is hosted the outdoor watch party, featuring two giant screens. That plus security and permints came in at a whopping $30,000, News4's Molette Green reported.

    The embassy picked up the tab.

    Germany defeated the U.S. 1-0 to win Group G, but the Americans also advanced to the knockout stage of the World Cup.

    With two wins and a draw, Germany topped the group with seven points, while the U.S. progressed with four. Portugal beat Ghana 2-1 but both were eliminated.

    Mueller scored in the 55th minute with a side-footed shot from the edge of the area as tropical downpours drenched the Arena Pernambuco.

    Both teams knew before kickoff that a draw would see them through, but neither held back. The game pitted Germany coach Joachim Loew against his good friend and predecessor Juergen Klinsmann, now in charge of the U.S. team.
