Jermaine Jones: 'We Always Trust in Ourselves'

Did you know the name  Jermaine Jones before Sunday's Team USA vs. Portugal World Cup match?

Jones is the U.S. men's player that thumped in an amazing long-range shot to score the first goal for America.

He brought the score to 1-1.

The game eventually ended with a final score tied at 2-2, and although the team was upset at the draw, they're concentrating on their next match.

"Mistakes happen and we have to learn that we step on and we have still everything in our own hands,"  Jones said.

Team USA faces Germany in the final group game on Thursday.

Jones is confident: "We 100% believe that we can make it to the next round.”
