World Soccer views and news
I am an American soccer fanatic. But I can’t believe who else are also soccer fans now.
When I did an event recently at my local bookstore in Montclair, New Jersey to discuss my new book about the World Cup, I was shocked by who showed up. A bunch of ’tween girls. They knew all about Lionel Messi, Fernando Torres, and Tim Howard (pictured above). Amazing.
For everyone else out there who knows more about Derek Jeter, Tom Brady, and Kobe Bryant than Wayne Rooney, Didier Drogba, and Landon Donovan, I thought I would break the whole thing down — World Cup wise.
