BATON ROUGE - Fans packed sports bars and other venues around Baton Rouge before lunch Thursday to watch the U. S. take on Germany in a key World Cup match.

People filled The Londoner in Baton Rouge nearly to capacity, draped in flags and covered in red-white-and-blue facepaint to cheer on the team.

Many people using social media also shared a note from U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann asking managers to excuse workers to watch the game for the good of the nation.

WBRZ News 2 will have more World Cup reactions and coverage starting at noon.
