Videos: A capacity crowd at Power & Light erupts during U.S. draw with Portugal
06/22/2014 11:58 PM
A crowd of more than 13,000 people crammed into the Power & Light District on Sunday to watch the United States men's national team take on Portugal in the World Cup. Security offers were forced to turn away thousands more after the area reached capacity.
The U.S. and Portugal battled to a 2-2 draw.
Clint Dempsey gave the Americans a 2-1 lead in the 81st minute on a goal assisted by Sporting Kansas City's Graham Zusi. That led to this eruption from the crowd at Power & Light:
Anticipating a victory, the Kansas City fans broke out their "I Believe" chant usually reserved for Sporting Park. It was, well, loud.
Portugal's Silvestre Varela scored in the final minute to tie the match.
The U.S. will take on Germany at 11 a.m. Thursday.
