World Cup Soccer
World Cup Soccer
The sport of soccer, called "football" by the rest of the world, has gained great popularity among young Americans. The month-long, international soccer tournament known as the World Cup is held every four years, and in 1994, the U.S. hosted the event for the first time. For four weeks, a record number of fans thronged nine different venues from coast to coast, cheering teams from 24 nations competing for the world championship. In the end, the Brazilian team won its fourth World Cup by defeating Italy 3-2 on penalty kicks.
