ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) – It’s a huge pay day for World Cup Soccer fans. The U.S.A. could make it to the next round. They’re hoping for a celebration at the Amsterdam Tavern.
Sunday’s game was exciting and U.S. fans thought their team had it until the final seconds when Portugal score and the game ended in a tie.
Thursday, The U.S. need to either beat or tie Germany to get to the next round. If they lose, they could still advance depending on what happens in the Ghana/Portugal game which is being played at the same time.
Television ratings have been through the roof with more than 25 million people watching Sunday’s match. That was the most-watched soccer game in U.S. history and Thursday that number could be even higher.
