Good old Stan!! Look at the friggin boots he wore them days too, more like pit boots than football boots, and that ball, all leather, weighed a ton when playing in wet conditions!!

Nahhh, I want to see the USA side win, would make a huge difference over here to soccer in general!

It really took off here after the US hosted the world cup a few years back, but the media still keep ignoring this sport! They can't ignore it any longer if the US team brings the world cup trophy here!!

I was in Florida at the time of that world cup

England failed to qualify. Disgraceful!

However on my visits to California, it is common to see 'soccer' matches on the parks.

It's widly played over here Mick, there's the national league. which started after the world cup was played over here.

One of my nephews had a soccer scholarship to university, injured his knee and screwed up his soccer career. He loved soccer, that was quite a few years back now as he's now in his 40's.

Not the old wet leather football killing machine thing again !!!!!!!!! it wasn't even round when you kicked it , it went anywhere no skill involved .. you'll be telling me next if the lace hit your forehead it opened up wider than the River Trent or it was like kicking a baby elephant and broke your foot .

Bend it like Beckham , pure skill ...........that's what i say

It's not the average American Den, it's the friggin media!!! Soccer is liked over here! They even play rugby league and union, even cricket! But until you can persuade the stupid media there's millions to be made, they just shun it! Although I note some big American corporations are now sponcering Soccer, maybe that will change the medias outlook with a few million bucks floating around!

BTW, the Yanks didn't invent either baseball or gridiron football Den!! Baseball was invented by Irish immigrants and Gridiron by the Canadians.

AND that stupid sport, ice hockey, well the Canadians are to blame!!

I agree Ayup, just about every grade-school kid we know has been or is currently in a soccer league. They start them off at about 4 years old here. If I had a dime for every AYSO (American Youth Soccer Org.) sticker I've seen on minivans...

I don't think Brazil was playing anymore than normal Den, just the other team was playing a lot better than they used to.

Remember, most players you see are now playing for world class teams during the normal season, so soccer is not so isolated as it used to be. ie South American, and European styles are no more, soccer is now on another level from when we were teens Den.

Think back to the 1966 world cup, we had two different styles playing back then, Euro and South American, nowadays a lot of the Brazilian players play for Spanish, French, Brit and German teams.

Soccer is changing Den, it's faster, more contact, where years ago, physical contact was frowned upon, the balls lighter, boots are mere reinforced sandels these days.
