Last night’s game between The United States and Belgium was a record breaking event. The twitterverse has been buzzing about the amazing performance of Tim Howard, the keeper for the USA team, who blocked a record-breaking 16 shots at the goal during the course of the game. The previous record was 13 saves made by Peru’s Ramon Quiroga back in 1978. However, Howard’s effort wasn’t enough and Belgium beat out the Americans 2-1 after going into extra time.

Mormons in the “twitterstake,” the online community of Mormons on Twitter, reacted to the game. See some of the top tweets below:

Good job Tim Howard and the rest of the USA team. And best of luck to the rest of the teams as they continue on in the tournament!
