England are out of the World Cup, and that means it's time to pick a second team and support it through the remainder of the tournament.

The USMNT have picked up a fan this way: Piers Morgan.

I am now supporting the USA in this World Cup.

If you're rooting for the United States against Portugal, be warned: Morgan's club allegiance is to Arsenal, and he has taken their misfortunes in the past few years very, very personally. 

And his luck is no better at international level either, given England's swift exit from the tournament in Brazil.
