OT: Who in the World Cup do you root for now?

Submitted by Helloheisman on October 11th, 2017 at 9:44 PM
With the United States being out of the World Cup, does anyone have an alternative option at hand? Do you go based on family lineage, favorite player(s), or favorite style of play? Of course if you're a citizen or dual citizen of another country it goes without saying. This is really weird for me, as my whole life the USMNT has been in every World Cup. Me? I'm hoping my boys from the Emerald Isle can pull off an upset of epic proportions to make it through the Euro playoff. Being Irish-German, it feels to cheap to throw my hat in for Germany.

For all the MGoSoccer fans out there, the USA U-20 team takes on Serbia in the World Cup quarterfinals at 12:30 tonight on FS1.  

These games have been really late/early in the morning since the tournament is in New Zealand, so i'll happily take a 12:30am kickoff on a Saturday night.  Exciting to see the future of US soccer with this squad.

What a game today and solid performances against Ghana, Portugal (almost a win), and Germany (which scored 4 on Portugal).

His 12 saves in regulation time today were the most of any keeper in Brazil so far, and second most at any World Cup in the past 50 years.

If that was the 12-year veteran's final game for his country, he went out in fitting fashion: even though his team lost, Howard was named man of the match.

So put on your oversized gloves and give the man a round of applause

After an exciting group stage, the World Cup is now into the knockound round/sweet sixteen.  For the 168 of us (nice!) who entered the bracket challenge on ESPN, here is an update to the standings.

Top 10-ish:

Tied for first are "Sharath3947" and "Bowl picks right?".  Assuming these aren't your MGoBlog usernames, who made the top 10?

 

 

P.S. In my original post starting the pool I mentioned that I root USA, France, Uruguay.  Somehow, all three are still alive in the tourney, so I'm lovin it!

Hey folks, seems like there is a good amount of World Cup interest here on the blog, so I figured we could have some fun making picks.

I'm not really a soccer guy myself, but it's fun watching the national tournaments.  I've always rooted for France, adopted Uruguay last time, and of course will cheer on the red, white, and blue.  So Allez les Bleus, <insert whatever Uruguayans say>, and Go USA!

Who's your team?
