No matter what country you support, the pain of losing in a World Cup is a bitter pill to swallow. After a frustrating performance by the United States against Ghana, the United States men’s national team will be returning home shortly after a successful tournament. The team and fans can keep their head held high.
Next up is England and their game tomorrow against Germany. As each game ends in the next few days, a powerful team will get knocked out.
But as much as some United States soccer fans may want to disassociate themselves with the rest of the World Cup, this is now their opportunity to sit back and watch games for the pure pleasure of it. Watching your country play can be a difficult experience. But when it’s a country that you have no connection with, it’s easier to sit back, relax and take in some of the best soccer that the world has to offer.
The other opportunity it presents us is that we have an opportunity now to support another country other than our own. What about you? Which country will you support between now and the end of the World Cup in the hopes that they do well?
