The USA team beat Germany 2-0 and, while I am not a large soccer fan, all I have to say is “USA USA USA!” This win means they advance to the finals and will face either Japan or England, depending on who wins the semifinal match.

Argentina will now face Chile, the host of the tournament, in the final match. Argentina hasn’t won a significant trophy since the 1993 Copa America, when Lionel Messi, who was named the MVP of the game, was six years old.

I’m sure in a few weeks people will forget soccer even exists but it’s exciting to see how the USA will finish in the championship.
Americans during the World Cup: “USA!” “Love soccer!” “Best sport ever.” After: “Soccer? HELL no.” “Zzzzzzzzz.” “I’d rather do homework.”
