Goooooal! And two of 'em!
The United States men's soccer team avenged its previous losses to Ghana in the past two World Cups Monday in Brazil, beating the African team 2-1 in their opening match and getting a necessary win under their belt.
And you can bet that Team USA's famous fans were super-psyched to see Clint Dempsey score the fastest-ever goal in America's World Cup history, only 30 seconds in, and then watch John Brooks put the match out of reach for Ghana in minute 86.
U.S. & World

Here's just a sampling of the delighted response from the celebrity twitterverse:
