For the last three weeks much of the country has been riveted by the United States Men’s National Team’s run through the “group of death” and into the knockout stage of the World Cup. Many have been very impressed with the way the USA has played to date, and they’ve earned the respect of many around the world. So much so that many international soccer fans have adopted the USA as their underdog favorite in the World Cup.
Still, professional soccer is, at best, the fifth most popular sport in the United States. Many still consider soccer to be inferior to other sports because of the quirky rules, flopping, and the lack of scoring. Yes, the sport is growing in popularity, but has it grown enough to capture the attention of Kansas City Chiefs fans? One would think because of the popularity of Sporting Kansas City that the World Cup may hold a bit more weight here than in other spots of the US, but is that really the case?
