The Dream Team all but ruined amateur sports for everyone. Why? Because the US had to be best at everything, kind of like the Soviet Union in its heyday and Germany in 1936 infamously. The point is nobody really likes someone that has to win at all costs (and, no, I'm not talking about England- they're a class act). Anyhow, I'm glad Europe is a power in football (sorry, Bats, but that is what it's called in most of Europe), but don't dis the other countries, especially the Latin ones. I have no doubt they'll rise again.
I didn't diss anyone

Which bit was the diss?

You said Latin America wouldn't win another World Cup for twenty years. I wouldn't be so sure about that. Anyway, it doesn't really matter. It's been a great Cup and England has nothing to be ashamed of. Here's hoping for Croatia to do it tomorrow.

That makes no sense.

It's because football is inherently American and your silly European nonsense is a distraction.

You made it sound like a Latin American team wouldn't win until 2038. I apologize if I misinterpreted. Not trying to pick a fight, honest.

Well considering we are only the 13th country to participate in the finals, and the first since 1962 and Czechoslovakia that has less than 10 million people, it kind of does work like that. Americans have very little culture or general interest in football, that's why they're not very successful.

And I really wouldn't compare football from 70 years ago with modern football.
Let's not try to downplay what's happening here please...

Soccer never really caught on in the States, not men's soccer anyway (the Women won their cup the last time around). We have a professional soccer league but it doesn't get the fan base that the other sports do.

So, what do you think, Adidass? Another shootout win for Croatia? (I hope they win in regulation this time).

I really hope not, but I'll take it anyway.
