    Does anyone else have an interest? I never used to like soccer but it has grown on me through the years.

    Only as possible relocation venues for American football,I blessed the day my sons quit playing soccer,then about three years later a guy I said that too told me "yeah but it keeps them in shape for the real sports", NOW I go to my grandsons soccer games and am the loudest icehole on the sidelines ,he's the best goalie on both his teams and I keep carping to get him out where he can get the conditioning.
    His dad and his step dad both push the kid and I see myself in them, pushing too hard, not letting him just have fun, sad thing is they are united in keeping him off a wrestling mat (major mistake) :cry: ,maybe my sons will give me grandsons (y)

    I played in High School but haven't followed soccer at all. Even when Pele came to the USA and soccer actually got noticed for the first time in this nation.

    I am however a fan of some of the fans :sneaky:

    Chinese fan dies after staying up to watch the World Cup
    By Eurosport

    A Chinese football fan has reportedly died after staying up on successive nights to watch the World Cup.

    The 25-year-old man from Suzhou, near Shanghai, was found in front of his TV hours after the Netherlands beat Spain 5-1 in their first round game on Friday, which finished at around 5am Chinese time, and doctors said his death could have been caused by sleep deprivation.

    The time difference between Suzhou and Brazil is 11 hours, meaning fans have to stay up through the night to follow the World Cup, and it appears this particular enthusiast took things a little too far.

    According to the Xinhua news agency, doctors said the death was related to an excessive lack of sleep, but couldn't be sure whether it was sheer exhaustion or a possible heart attack.


    This is not a new problem in China, whose time zone rarely tallies with whoever is hosting the World Cup, and similar problems were reported for both the 2006 and 2010 tournaments.

    So when you're thinking about staying up for that crucial Japan v Greece clash, maybe consider having a nap first.

    if you havent found out by now, the rosters were preset before the first game. the US, like other teams with injuries will continue on without that player. ghana tied germany yesterday, puts the onus on the US beating Portugal later on.
