The United States has been late in coming to the sport of soccer, but kids have been playing the sport, on town teams and in school, for at least 25 years. As young soccer players grow up, they become soccer fans.
This year interest in the World Cup has exploded. The best place to start looking for World Cup information is at the FIFA website. FIFA is the acronym for Fédération Internationale de Football Association. Team USA information can be found here and here.
