Dolphins players react to USA's World Cup win

Laurence Griffiths

The 2014 FIFA World Cup is underway, with the United States pulling out a 2-1 win over Ghana yesterday. How did the Miami Dolphins react to the win? We take a look.

As much as the United States is a football and baseball country, every four years, soccer does infect the mainstream.  Suddenly, everyone is watching as the US Men's National Team heads into the FIFA World Cup.  Yesterday marked the team's debut in the 2014 edition of the largest sporting tournament in the world, and Team USA did not disappoint, grinding out a 2-1 win over Ghana.

Twitter exploded when Clint Dempsey scored in the first minute of play.  Ghana eventually tied the game in the 82nd minute, only to see 21-year-old John Brooks, in his World Cup debut, head home the winning goal off a corner kick in the 86th minute.  The celebration was on.

It was not all good news for the US, however, as Dempsey suffered a broken nose when he got kicked in the face and fellow forward Jozy Altidore strained his left hamstring.  How long Altidore will be away from the team is not yet known, but any lengthy absence will hurt the United States' chances throughout the tournament.

As the match was being played, fans everywhere were fully engaged on Twitter, reacting to every play.  Included in those fans were Miami Dolphins players, legends, and the team itself.
