When you block 16 shots on goal during a World Cup match, you better believe the President of the United States wants to talk to you!
Barack Obama dialed up two members of the U.S. Men’s National team this week, goalkeeper Tim Howard and captain Clint Dempsey, to congratulate them for an INCREDIBLE game played against Belgium!
Our boys lost 2-1 but they captured America’s hearts like never before!
The prez told told Tim and Clint:
"You guys did us proud. To see the way you guys captured the hearts and the imaginations of the country is unbelievable.”
He then offered the unofficial Secretary of Defense some advice on how to keep a low profile when he gets back to America!
Obama said to Tim Howard:
"Tim, I don't know how you're going to survive the mobs when you get back home. You’re going to have to shave your beard so they don't know who you are.”
Press PLAY (above) and prepare to feel ALL of the feels for America!
