Ahead of key U.S. game, American fans catch soccer fever

Email
American soccer fans decked out in red, white and blue were expected to flock to stadiums and giant TV screens on Tuesday to cheer their national team in a World Cup clash with Belgium that could be the most-watched soccer game in U.S. history.
 

Strong performances by the U.S. team in Brazil have ignited passions in a country not known for its love of soccer. That excitement will peak if the supposed underdogs can triumph in Salvador and advance to the tournament's quarter-finals.
