Along with the rest of the country, celebrities took time out Thursday to wish Team USA well in their battle against Germany in the World Cup.
Though the U.S. were defeated (Germany 1: USA 0), they will advance into the final 16 knockout round with Portugal’s win over Ghana in the other Group G game. The U.S. next plays Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.

Ashton Kutcher went so far as to get a note from Jurgen Klinsmann, head coach of Team USA, excusing him from having to attend work during the highly-anticipated match.
Even President Obama tuned in to watch the game while traveling aboard Air Force One.
