No Seattle Sounders or USMNT news today, just a little thing called, oh you know, the World Cup. I am a Monday through Friday blogger. But on the weekends I always do a quick Sounders gameday post. I’ll continue that tradition with a quick World Cup check-in.
The first few days have been nuts, as expected. Who saw Spain just getting embarrassed?! Today’s most intriguing matchup is England vs. Italy. This is like a Big Ten matchup of international soccer: two storied, pedigreed teams that grind out results. I don’t care to make a prediction, but will rather bask in soccer glory.
And if you aren’t pumped for the Stars and Stripes first game on Monday, hopefully this gets your pulse up!
