Catching World Cup Fever
DAYTON-- Have you caught it? World Cup fever is sweeping the Miami Valley, just hours before the United States team plays their biggest match yet against Germany. What are local fans predicting the outcome of the game, what do they think about the team's performance so far, and what do they think about the "biting incident" involving a player from Uruguay?
They might have been joking at their most recent training session in Brazil, but this year's US team is nothing to joke about. They beat Ghana 2-1 in their first game, then held Christian Ronaldo and the Portugese team to a 2-2 tie.
At Action Sports in Dayton, local soccer players are on edge about Thursdays match up.
Like the 24.7 million other Americans who watched the US V. Portugal game, Andrew Kern says he will be glued to his tv for the full 90 minutes.
"I'll be jumping, I'll be yelling screaming it'll be really exciting," Kern said," a lot of people who haven't gotten into American soccer have gotten into it because the United States is playing and they're showing support for their country."
"To be honest soccer here is not like more popular than in my country Saudi Arabia," said Mohammed Eggazzin while waiting for his match to start Wednesday evening, but even he had to show the Red, White, and Blue some love, saying "I hope they can do something because their group is so strong they play with Germany and the Portugese."
Scandal of the World Cup so far happened in the Uruguay versus Italy game. Uruguayan player Luis Suarez allegedly bit and Italian footballer on the shoulder. In... The reaction is that would never happen in a United States game.
"It's dirty play," Andrew Kern said, "and I think he should be banned from the rest of the tournament. It sets a bad example for the kids."
"Once I saw the replay I got angry," said 8 year old Teagan Williams of West Carrollton. He added he knows how to better be a better sport but it's easy to get carried away during the World Cup.
"I have anger issues so I bite my brother a lot, so that might do it," Williams joked.
