America is not very versed in the game of soccer, but every four years, a pandemic sweeps the globe. Americans cannot really understand the effervescence that the rest of the world is experiencing. As I’m writing these lines, the game between France and Paraguay is in full swing in South Africa. From the reports I’m getting from Paris, the streets (and restaurants) have been deserted as everyone is at home watching.  

And, even though I am French, for tomorrow’s match against England: Go USA!
