World Cup fever is about to begin, as the world’s biggest soccer tournament starts in South Africa on June 11. Every four years the top 16 national soccer teams fight for the right to lift the World Cup Trophy. For the first time the continent of Africa will host the world’s biggest tournament.

Soccer still struggles to get a foothold in the American sports establishment (which is still ruled by the triumvirate of Football, Basketball, and Baseball), but the rest of the globe goes mad for the beautiful game.  Children around the US grow up playing soccer, and give fans of the game hope for the future of soccer in America.
