The World Cup final between Germany and Argentina was the most watched soccer (“fútbol”) game ever in the United States with more than 26.5 million viewers according to ESPN.  The tournament, as a whole, also set social media records according to an article by CNN.

As a fan of the game, I’m pleased to see the growth of the sport in the U.S. and am already looking forward to the 2018 tournament to be held in Russia.
