US Men's Soccer: Will They Surprise All?

With the World Cup kick-off right around the corner, fans are scrambling around to complete fantasy brackets before time is up. Americans are also crossing their fingers in hope that the USA Men’s Soccer Team will come back in full force and bring home victory to the United States!

Although soccer is not traditionally one of the big sports for Americans, the popularity has since increased, and many are looking forward to the 2010 World Cup that is set to take place in South Africa. When the US won the 2002 Gold Cup, it set up the team’s best performance since 1930 after reaching the quarterfinals in the 2002 World Cup. More success was also seen when they won their third Gold Cup in 2005. All we can hope is that the United States’ hard work to qualify will carry on into the tournament and that we can surprise all soccer fans around the world to have our best performance since 1930.

The US Soccer team itself knows that they have something to prove, and want to show people that they are worthy enough to be a part of such an amazing experience with some very talented teams. As long as the team continues to believe, then they can do anything they set their mind to. Of course, their first game against England will be extremely crucial, but I have faith that our US team will do us proud.

It certainly will be interesting to see how people’s brackets play out. Get onto a fantasy site today to make your picks! :)
