Soccer’s World Cup

June 25, 2014
By

Although the United States is still not considered a world power in soccer, it certainly is starting to get the attention of the world soccer community.  They probably aren’t yet ready to challenge the power countries of Brazil and Mexico, but they can certainly hold their own in most of their matches these days.

The United States team is well known only to the true soccer fan, as they are not yet on the national scene like pro-football, basketball, and baseball.  Around the rest of the world, soccer easily outdraws the other pro sports each and every year.  Internationally, soccer is considered the “real” sport of the people.

You can bet that as TV gets more involved with this International Soccer Tournament, people in the United States will get on board like the rest of the world.
