#WorldCupUSA - Holland fans in New Orleans, LA

You can find soccer fans everywhere in the USA, even deep in the south (and Saints country) in New Orleans, Louisiana.
A group of Dutch fans, made up of Holland expats, Dutch-Americans, friends and traveling Dutch tourists came together at the Rusty Nail in the warehouse district of New Orleans to watch the Netherlands-Costa Rica World Cup Quarterfinal match.
Most of the fans situated with buckets of beer in a little cabana in the back of the bar.
It was a tough game to watch for the Dutch fans, with several chances in regulation to win over Costa Rica.
But the fans held their "Oranje" pride high, and wore their clogs as the game went into extra time.
When the Dutch keeper saved a penalty kick it looked like it would be their day.
And when the second penalty kick was saved, the fans, including this Dutch family on a road trip in America, celebrated advancing to the Semi-finals.
It was a dream come true...
...and as they danced around singing "Hup, Holland" the Dutch fans were now only two games away from claiming their first World Cup trophy.
