The Germans were tough team to -- won nothing and the USA from my perspective played a pretty tough sell off. Folks are taking that -- feeling pretty good about it and they're looking for more success out of this USA team. Great and you think the crowds will continue to build especially Tuesday with the US plays again. Blakey might it's a Tuesday so maybe you know people do have to work at least some of them I guess they USF soccer coasted. He did put out I guess an absentee letter to folks they could use an excuse note if they wanted to. To call in sick to work still have to see how many folks actually show for work for that game. That'll probably hold until Tuesday as well. Davies is just a lot of money -- -- even though we lost yeah exactly thank you so that's -- Gregory out of most of the region to had a good day of soccer thank you. Believe it or not appear heart can take it more games today -- important ones for the US pay attention at 4 o'clock Algeria and Russia. Algeria likely needing only a win to qualify for the knock out stage. And this one you want to watch Belgium and South Korea another 4 o'clock start.
