    More than anything I just think he felt like he had to lie down before he passed out. As a defender, John Brooks doesn't score a ton of goals. In fact, that was just his 5th goal as a professional in any competition. And to have it come as a game winner with 4 minutes to play in a World Cup game? That's enough to make anyone collapse, especially a 21-year-old defender.

    It was so awesome and refreshing to see his reaction after the goal. It has been a LONG time since I've seen a professional player with that kind of humility.
