FITCHBURG (WKOW) -- Soccer fans packed the Break Away Sports Center in Fitchburg Tuesday to watch team USA's world cup match-up against Belgium.

While it was a heartbreaking loss for team USA in extra time,the manager of Break Away says it was still a great opportunity for young players to see some of the best players compete on the biggest stage the sport has to offer.

Matt Lombardino says,"This is a good way for them to see what that level of play is and to gain that passion and to go out to MLS games or us national games."

It was also quite the scene at the Memorial Union Terrace as hundreds gathered to watch the game on a jumbotron.
