They say a tie is like kissing your sister — so how do you describe Thursday’s U.S. World Cup match where they lost … but still advanced to the next round? NBA star Dirk Nowitzki called the situation “perfect” while out in New York City after the match went down. For Dirk — who is German, but clearly has some love for the U.S. — it really could not have gone down any better. If they meet up again in the knockout round, don’t expect Dirk’s allegiance to waffle quite as much.

“Dirk Nowitzki — U.S. Vs. Germany … Everybody Wins!” is categorized as “world”. This video was licensed from Grab Networks. For additional video content, click the “video” tab at the top of this page.
