SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

Sports bars were packed once again to see their favorite countries compete.

After Mexico's win over Croatia revelers took to the streets in Los Angeles and had to be ordered back to the sidewalks.

At bars in Santa Barbara, Oxnard and Santa Maria fans enjoyed the games.  One fan said he cheers for North America, South America and Central America.  Another fan said he wasn't a big fan until World Cup began in Brazil.

Many people wore their teams jerseys.

Sports bars plan to open early on Thursday when U.S. takes on Germany in the nation's next tough game.
