Tim Howard was blocking everything and everyone yesterday -- but his historic effort wasn't enough for Team USA to advance onward, losing 2-1 to Belgium.

Historically, this is the moment most Americans move on to other things in sport, to forget about Soccer until the next time Team USA is in the spotlight.

What are your plans for the rest of the summer when it comes to what sports you plan to watch? Are you forgetting about soccer until Team USA is back in the spotlight or are you moving back to watching the MLS?

Soccer/football became my favorite sport a few years ago and I don't see that changing now that the World Cup is drawing to a close. I'll watch as much as the last few matches as my schedule allows and look forward to the US stars returning to MLS.

I never watched the World Cup to begin with, when is real football coming back?

I hate to break it to you but that is real football--not the rugby-derived concussion buffet that so many Americans seem to love for reasons I don't understand to be honest with you.

Exactly, the should call what we Americans call football American rugby..or soccer! One understands the history behind why it's called football her in the US but in the end soccer should be football because it's played mostly with your feet! And football should be called soccer. You already know it won't be called American rugby because that would be "un-American" -___-

I don' really watch MLS either, but the Swedish league is starting back and a bunch of other minor European leagues start up the end of July.
 
# 7 McG @ 07/02/14 11:59 AM
Yeah of course I'll still watch soccer after this. The MLS blows but the other major European leagues are great to watch, wish the MLS could get on their level, but that's another story all together.

We get ready for next year because it's our Women's National Team's turn and they actually will be favorites. The Women's World Cup, especially next year will be quite fun as it usually is but added to the fact it will be the last for a lot of the stars of the team.

Domestically, this country will watch MLS for a week then give up on the sport which is sooo annoying but what was going to change? As long as you have enough of the country that's xenophobic, and sees soccer as "something the USA isnt even good at" that's how it will be. Next year our ladies can win the hole thing and folks will be quick to be negative or not care. That's another discussion all-together but frustrating nonetheless.

That Men's team shocked the heck out of me. Played good and showed us we're getting closer to America being a soccer powerhouse in regards to international competition. Powerhouse in regards to we play better consistently and arent a team even the Brasil's, Argentina's, whoever can just write off.

BOTTOMLINE: When the conversation moves from soccer vs futbol (which is so stupid), Keith Olbermann doesnt do the show where he points the finger at people trying to make soccer popular vs the folks that see putting down the sport as a sport itself (as well as being annoyed some ppl call it a pitch vs field) and we can stop trying to play semantics with the rules/laws of the game and focus on THE game, and why teams are better, and why we're getting there/how to get there, we can then progress with soccer.

But as long as you have NFL trolls and these "Soccer isnt American" idiots which... there's A LOT of them... soccer will continue to operate in the same space it has been.

USA being eliminated had almost no impact on my interest of the world cup lol. Sure, I'd rather see Argentina vs USA over Argentina vs Belgium, but in the end, I'm hoping finals is something like Brazil vs Argentina.

Didn't watch any World Cup, so I'll just keep watching baseball waiting on football season.
 
# 11 LowerWolf @ 07/02/14 12:28 PM
I'll keep watching the World Cup, and I'm going to try to get into MLS as well.

But baseball is always going to be my first love in the summer. And I'll keep on counting down the days until the start of football season.
 
# 12 taylor89 @ 07/02/14 12:42 PM
I'm ready for football season. Don't have a care in the world about soccer.

I tried to watch the World Cup, I really did. 16 saves by Howard the most in a World Cup game in 50 years? That, for me, demonstrates why I find soccer so dull. In hockey, we may have a low scoring game, but that means there are typically at least scoring chances. Very rarely will you see a hockey game dominated by a team, like Belgium did to the US, and have only 16 shots. I still don't get the love for soccer.
 
# 14 Cowboy008 @ 07/02/14 12:43 PM
Will watch some Baseball as I wait for the preseason to start.
 
# 15 elgreazy1 @ 07/02/14 01:00 PM
Wait, Team USA is out and people are not watching soccer anymore? No way.
 
# 16 Norris_Cole @ 07/02/14 01:22 PM
The only "real football" is actually what americans call "soccer"

Belgium actually had 38 shots, of which 16 were saved; just putting that out there, which compares quite similarly to the amount of shots aimed at Lundqvist in the first Stanley cup game (43 shots, 40 saves); also, when you consider the size of a football goal and the amount of defenders in front of him, for a keeper to even make double digit saves is amazing, and this is why there is beauty to a low scoring game of Football than a low scoring game of hockey

Was dejected when USA lost (C'MON WONDO!!) but I'll be reverting back to baseball and NASCAR until football starts. Doesn't look like the Sox are getting anywhere this year.
 
# 19 statum71 @ 07/02/14 05:25 PM
Disappointed that USA lost. But I'm watching the World Cup 'til the end.

Then, I'll just enjoy baseball until College football and the NFL starts.

But I have enjoyed it. So much that I wish the World Cup was every summer.
 
# 20 bluesfan13 @ 07/02/14 05:35 PM
I'll watch. I will be significantly less into it, but I'll still watch. I enjoy soccer and love the EPL and am ready for the Fall sports to be back. Like baseball, but harder to follow since cutting the cord.

I'm sure my boss is excited the US is done, our office was significantly less productive the last few weeks.
