Americans, even in this day and age, do not embrace soccer, on the whole.
Why is this? Americans?
You don’t like the lack of goals, we’ve all heard that one. But then again, your national sport is Baseball!
If you (Americans) put as much dedication and commitment into soccer as say, the Germans or the Spanish, you would have a truly mindblowing national team. You surely could, in time, become the Brazil of the north!
Good Luck, you unenlightened people.
