It is that time of year again where “every” 4 years most Americans become soccer fans. Yes I said soccer because here in America we say soccer.
For those who don’t know the “2022 FIFA World Cup is an international association football tournament contested by the men’s national teams of FIFA’s member associations. The 22nd FIFA World Cup, it is taking place in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December 2022. This is the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world, and the second held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.[A] At an estimated cost of over $220 billion, it is the most expensive World Cup ever held.”
What makes the World Cup so special is that it is the one time besides the Olympics where people of all cultures congregate in one city/area for weeks or even months. It is a beautiful sight to behold and I can’t wait for the World Cup in 2026 when it comes to the United States, Mexico, & Canada.

I am a huge soccer/football fan and it is probably my favorite sport besides American football. I will be rooting for the United States Men’s National Team. But my heart is with the German team because I grew up watching the Bundesliga and I am a Bayern Munich fan. The United States team has a good chance of advancing to the Round of 16 with a win against Iran on Tuesday.
If the United States advances the country won’t be able to control themselves and the hype that will happen will be stuff, we haven’t seen before. I watched the USA vs England game and the intensity that USA showed in that game was incredible.
If the team shows the same intensity, they could make some noise in the Round of the 16 and even further. But I don’t think they will make the World Cup finals. We shall see what team USA & the other nations will do but it will be a great world cup and I can’t wait for the rest of the games.
