The US team were already the most traveled team at this World Cup clocking up more than 10,000 miles, but now the journey they really didn't want to make. They are going back home, but they overachieved. They qualified from this World Cup for the seventh successive time, they got through the so called group of death - they overachieved and they did themselves pride against Belgium, but it was not to be.
