Today has been a glorious day of soccer. From the international friendlies between European greats to the USA men's World Cup qualifier against Guatemala (a pretty necessary win after last week's loss to Guatemala - particularly if your name is Jürgen Klinsmann) to the U23 USA men's Olympic qualifier against Colombia.
If you're a soccer fan, today has been a perfect display of The Beautiful Game. I'm counting down the days to Euro 16 as well as Copa de America at this point. If you're not a soccer fan, talk to me...I promise I can convince you to be one.
Also, if you're from Texas, feel the Clint Dempsey love! He's one of the best players and all-time goal-scorers on the US men's team, and he's from good ol' Nacogdoches, Texas! Join the fun - become a soccer fan!
Here's a breakdown of the day, so far, in case you missed it:
- Norway 2 - Finland 0
- Sweden 1 - Czech Republic 1
- Portugal 2 - Belgium 1
- Germany 4 - Italy 1
- France 4 - Russia 2
- Netherlands 2 - England 1
And at the moment, the USMNT is leading Guatemala 1-0.
UPDATE: USMNT wins 4-0!!!
