Great run that had to end at some point. We've made progress. Hopefully we take it a step further in 2018.

it was a good game, but Belgium lived in the US half of the field for most of the game.

and I had to laugh while flipping channels tonight....

on ESPN the announcer of an after game show showed a picture of fans watching the game from outdoors or something and his line was "that proves America is a soccer country."

what a joke, lets be honest...the vast majority of the US will forget about soccer for another 4 years

Soccer is growing in popularity in the US... Yeah, certain areas of the country Soccer is an unknown, but there are places (like the Pacific NW) where it is very big... The Sounders (Seattle) outdraws the Mariners consistantly.

Donovan went down in my book after he admitted (at first) he was rooting against USA when the World Cup first started. Even though he might feel that way, he should have never said it... Maybe (just maybe) that is why he was left off the roster??

Hardly anybody will talk about US soccer or any soccer for that matter over the next few years in this country. We will make the World Cup and go through hearing this every four years. I enjoyed watching our team play, but we are not even close to being as good as some of these teams. Now we go back to MLS getting lower ratings than the WNBA.

Im not saying this World Cup will make Soccer more popular than the 3 major sports in this country (Football/Baseball/Basketball), because we all know that is crap. BUT, the ratings for this year's World Cup here in the States has been very good.

I agree the World Cup will be big in this country as long as we are in it. I just think the hype that I am hearing from some national pundits over the popularity of soccer are way over the top. My interest in soccer is higher than it used to be but still way down the list of sports. Watching the US play is entertaining, but MLS is a joke in my opinion.

Has a lot more to do with the game times this World Cup compared to the previous locations. Also, the World Cup is played at a perfect time in American sports. There is literally nothing to compete with. I'm happy that the US supported the team, but let's not get too caught up in the rating.

They do it every four years. It is just something to talk about to get through June while waiting for NFL and college training camps to start.

True, the MLS is like AA in Baseball... Its not of the quality of the leagues in Europe... Not really even close.

Maybe I am of the minority, but I have found myself watching other WC matches during this tournament (and I am not a hard core Soccer fan).. I am from an area of the country where Soccer is thriving, but I have really never bought in fully to following the sport.

I might start following a Premiership (shit, is that how ya say it) team now...

I have friends that have season tickets to the Seattle Sounders (MLS) that have always asked me to go to games (when I am back there)... I have always told them "no thanks"... but maybe I will go see them when I am out there now..

Let's be real no one wants to fork out that cash for a mariners game, and if you do, you can't be sober, then when you do want to buy beer is 12 bucks each.

Even the yankees have had pretty bad attendance in recent years it's getting very expensive for the average American to show up.
MLS tickets are not that expensive.
