2014 FIFA World Cup!
It’s finally here soccer fans, the 2014 FIFA World Cup! The month long competition kicks off today as the host country, Brazil, takes on Croatia.
It’s been a long four years since the last World Cup, where the current world champions, Spain, won their first title. The United States has had a promising couple of years since 2010, seeing one of the best teams in our recent history come together and win the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The question on every USA fan’s mind right now is how far can we make it?
The United States is in arguably the toughest group of the tournament, with the highly ranked Germany and Portugal being the group favorites and the US and Ghana the underdogs. Only the top 2 teams from each group will advance in the tournament, so the US needs to start out strong in their first game against Ghana Monday the 16th.
So who do you have winning it all? How far will the US make it this year? Let us know who you have in the comments below!
