WASHINGTON (WNEW) — U.S. fans were chanting loud and proud in a D.C. bar after the soccer team beat Ghana 2-1 in their World Cup opener.

“We’re not ‘Ghana’ take it” accompanied the typical U.S.A. chant Sunday night at the Biergarten Haus on H Street, NE.

WNEW’s Violet Ikonomova watched the game with hundreds of fans, who said it was obvious the U.S. was ready to defeat it’s rival after Clint Dempsey scored a goal in the first minute of the match.

Many of the fans there also said they think the U.S. has a chance to beat it’s next opponent Portugal on June 22, after the team lost a key player and lost 4-0 to Germany.
