The World Cup is like the ultimate sporting venue. So much national pride. I can already tell you - the US sucks - hope we don't go so I won't be disappointed. I gotta rout for Ireland and Sweden as I have both in my heritage. And with Germany being the host country and doing so well in the last World Cup - well - I will be watching all their games.
Good luck with your game.
Hey Lance, you shouldn't discount the US so quickly.. They are currently ranked an impressive 6th on the international FIFA rankings (see here), above Ireland, Sweden and Germany!
