Better Than Superbowl

This is hardly surprising. Not only because soccer is more popular than all major US sports combined. Soccer games between national teams can at times have dimension and importance that which major US competitions lack. For example, in order to motivate his team in the crucial match against Germany, a Dutch player made speech about suffering their country endured during WW2 occupation (and got lambasted for not being politically correct nor good European afterwards). You couldn't find that extra importance in Superbowl, Stanley Cup or World Series.
