Although their fates remain a mystery, these few moments of glory will always be remembered…by them.
Here is a list of 8 World Cup fans who also deserve modeling contracts..
Gonzalo Higuain’s first goal of this World Cup sent Argentina into the semifinals on Saturday with a 1-0 win over a disappointing Belgium.
So far none of Argentina’s opponents has been able to stop Lionel Messi. Perhaps Belgium has what it takes. But even if doesn’t, the Red Devils present a fresh challenge for Argentina at this World Cup.
Days after U.S.A.’s loss against Belgium took them out of the running in the World Cup, players for the team are headed home. Some of them are even stopping into South Florida for a homecoming party.
You’ll notice the ratings for this World Cup are highest in the Northeast, where folks try rather hard to look most enlightened. And you may also notice by the time the U.S. team lost to Belgium, some of them had already jumped ship.
Belgium defeated the U.S. 2-1 in full time and deflated the American hype and furor around our new favorite sport-of-the-moment. Although we won’t see the USMNT contend for the title, good times and camaraderie were had by all.
Kevin De Bruyne turned a heroic night for U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard into defeat on Tuesday with an extra-time goal and an assist that gave Belgium a 2-1 victory and a quarterfinal match against Lionel Messi and Argentina.
Highly physical, probably defensive and anxiety-ridden for sure. Not exactly the kind of happy football that fans have enjoyed so far at the World Cup, but it’s the likely scenario for Tuesday’s second-round match between Belgium and the United States.
In what is perhaps the most anticipated game for the USA thus far in the 2014 World Cup, Belgium is the only thing standing in the way of a round of 8 spot and Jurgen Klinsmann’s squad.
