"American soccer sucks and is a joke"
Posted by on Jun 28th, 2009

Thats a headline that nobody in the soccer world would have disputed a couple of years ago..and then they go and nearly do the unimaginable!Who woulda thunk it!!! The American soccer(football) team have nearly beaten the most successful international soccer team of all time in the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009 in South Africa.As a newly converted supporter of the host nation( South Africa played Spain for a bronze medal and did the entire country proud by giving it horns..well done boys.) i am absolutely floored that the USA team came so close to handing  the almighty Brazilian team an ass whipping of note that will go down in history as the day that America are no longer the joke of the soccer world.In a country dominated by baseball,basketball,ice hockey and the NFL, its astounding that they have just added the most popular kids sport to the list of things they are good at.Soccer moms country wide will walk tall tomorrow, the soccer players at high school may actually get laid for a change and David Beckham is gonna say its because of him that they almost won.Sport in the USA has changed forever…a whole new breed of soccer hooligans will be attending the World Cup next year..and like-it-or-not team USA will now think they are unstoppable and the taste of near victory today will give them enough confidence to make every other supporter vomit..bring it on i say..its great for the beautiful game.All credit to the Brazilian team though for keeping the suspense alive and fooling the USA into thinking they could actually win a major soccer tournament.Final score Brazil 3 USA  2(full review here).Gooooooooooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllll!
