Too bad that my country (the Netherlands) got knocked out, but at least I'm glad that the U.S. made it to the final - which is good for the sport.
P.s.: Am I the only one that is amazed to find so much attention for this here and in online news in general?
I have seen a local increase in soccer here in Ohio too in the last year.
I was thinking the opposite! Here in America, this seems to be getting very little coverage. . .
I feel like in America it is getting a lot more coverage than the previous women's world cup. (not as much as the men's world cup was but it will be like that forever)
There's coverage, but not much hype. We're competing for the world cup!, and it doesn't seem that way on the media right now.
I was at a brew pub in a small town in Wisconsin earlier and I heard a shout go up from a bunch of people watching something on the TVs by the bar. I remember thinking it was strange, because it's not football season.
On the way out, I realized it was the women's soccer game. It was a jarring moment, but in a nice way.
No, I am also impressed with the amount of media attention the Women's World Cup has been generating. Especially here in U.S, this is great for soccer and the future of women's sports.
Seriously, I think that every world cup more and more people are getting interested in the US. The 2014 cup was what got me willing to watch some MLS games and now I'm a La Galaxy fan and own the FIFA 15 game.
