There has never been as much hype about soccer in the United States as there is right now. The USMNT managed to survive the so-called “Group of Death” at the 2014 FIFA World Cup and move on to the knockout round, where they will face Belgium on Tuesday. And this has sports fans across the country pretty pumped.
Does that mean American sports fans are suddenly soccer experts? Hardly. But just as you don’t have to be a football expert to enjoy the Super Bowl, you don’t have to be a soccer expert to enjoy the World Cup.
That being said, knowing a little bit about what’s going on certainly helps. So today, to get you ready for tomorrow’s big game, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about Belgium.
Take a look and send the link to your friends. Then you can all go to a bar together, watch the game, and impress the hipster soccer snobs with your knowledge.
