Major League Soccer has a niche following, but it can't compete with America's more beloved pastimes, like baseball, football, basketball, and hockey.

Football or soccer as it is known in the USA, is a growing phenomenon in America, quickly overtaking other sports for participation and as a spectator sport. As Major League Soccer (MLS) has become ingrained into the minds of American sports fanatics so has the determination for world domination, and the FIFA World Cup title.
Group G Action
Prior to kickoff of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Group G was billed as the 'Group of Death', the tightest group of the tournament with no team certain of easy progression to the knockout stages. Last nights game between the USA and Portugal certainly lived up to the speculation. The USA 2014 World Cup home shirt missed out on security in the 95th minute with a dramatic Portuguese equalizer.
Traditionally the USA has not been strong in soccer tournaments, their best World Cup finish to date was 3rd place in 1930. Recent years have seen a massive increase in the popularity of soccer in the USA, and with German football manager Jurgen Klinsmann at the helm the USA were suspected of being a dark horse contender.

In the last two World Cup tournaments, the United States national team was sent packing by Ghana. In 2006, Ghana were debutants who beat the U.S. in a group stage match and at least partially contributed to the Americans' early, winless departure from that year's World Cup. In 2010, the U.S. team managed to make it beyond the group stage, but lost again in a meeting with Ghana in the round of 16. Based on those two occurrences, many were wondering if the same fate would befall the USA 2014 World Cup away jersey.
