Soccer and the United States are two things that usually don't mix well together. Many sports fans in the United States feel soccer is too slow, too low-scoring, and not exciting. However, the USA Men's Team has certainly got their county's attention in Brazil, after their 2-1 win over Ghana on Monday. After the win, the United States has been in the middle of a Futbol Frenzy, and now you can't turn on the TV without seeing replays of John Brooks' header goal in the 86th minute, or the reactions of fans all around the country. The United States Men's team plays Portugal on Sunday, and if the US keeps playing the way they have, soccer may have a newfound love in America.
