If all soccer games were more like the 2 games today, the level of interest in the US would be much higher. 2 exciting games!


Americans just don’t get into soccer. Especially if the US is not in the World Cup. Soccer will never trump the 4 major sports. Even though they get an avg. attendance higher then 2 of the 4 (NHL & NBA). And soccer will still sit behind NASCAR and golf for Americans.

I’m not a huge soccer fan, I love the World Cup and the Olympics, but I’d watch a match between two 14U teams from Honduras before I’d ever watch a NASCAR race.
