It might be a die-hard soccer fan’s worst nightmare.
Thousands of fans flooded Soldier Field in Chicago to watch the big game between USA and Belgium this afternoon only to find out that the Jumbotron at the stadium had gone out.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel was spotted in the stadium as well. He was one of the thousands of people waiting for the large screen to get back up.

Some fan dressed up head to toe for the game. That's one way to entertain the disappointed crowd.
