In case you weren’t excited about the United States’ best international performance in..well, almost ever, then maybe this inspirational hype video will get you fired up. It’s not clear who is behind the video, but it’s the YouTube equivalent of Al Pacino’s speech in Any Given Sunday.

Here’s the hysterically long video that oughta get the blood flowin’:

It’s got the Sam Elliott-soundalike, the Explosions in the Sky/Friday Night Lights dramatic music, and “knockout round” in the title of the video. WHAT ARE YOU? MADE OF STONE?

The US faces a sneaky-good Belgium team in the round of sixteen, and, judging by the TV ratings, America’s never been more excited about their squad. Rihanna be damned.

So naturally, the American thing to do here is overload a video with eagles, soldiers, drama, and sunsets to really get the point across.

Sweet land of liiiiiiiiiberty…
