    Yep and Spain's wall had moved up a clear yard by the time he kicked it so instead of trying to over them, he went around them starting the ball off the frame of the goal and bending it back. He also beat one of the world's best goalies in De Gea.

    Argentina, Columbia, and Brazil may not make it out of the group stage. Chew on that.

    I need to learn more about how the rankings are completed for the WC. It feels like their are more smaller countries competing.

    Mark this down as a component towards how and why soccer is the #1 sport in the world.

    Contrast this with the P5 model for NCAA football and how to create disinterest, and contraction.

    You straight up qualify for a period of two years I believe. There is no rankings system per se. There is a schedule that they mix into the regular season of all leagues where national players are called in to play qualification matches. If there are smaller countries in its because they straight up earned it. This is how the US lost out. They couldn't get enough good results against their qualifying schedule like Panama and Costa Rica.

    No offense intended, and your point is well taken, but soccer is the #1 sport in the world for the solitary reason that it is very inexpensive to play. One needs only a balled up paper cup and a cardboard box. I many places, it is the only accessible sport. My personal feelings about the so-called "beautiful game" aside, I am grateful for a game so readily available to everyone.

    How did American football get the name "Football"? Soccer is known as football (which it really is) around the world, except in the US. When you think of it, the name football doesn't really fit our game. It certainly won't change, but curious as to how that name came about.

    You are right. Which is why I pointed out that the World Cup's inclusion factor is a "component" to its success.

    ps I was referring to the professional level popularity world wide where money is not the deterrent.

    You seem to be referring to the grass roots level (pun) where only a ball is needed. That was all I needed to play American football growing up as well.

    My childhood interest grew from pro and College exposure.
