Americans named among the world's craziest soccer fans

Published Add your comment

For a country that hasn't exactly embraced the sport of football, the United States mens national team gets crazy backing from soccer supporters Stateside and that will be no different in the World Cup in Brazil.

Football fans from the States brought more tickets for games in the tournament than any other country in the world except the hosts Brazil and the Stars and Stripes will definitely be on full show in Natal, Manaus and Recife when they play Ghana, Portugal and Germany respectively.

Well the level of support that the Yanks get has been noted by FLAMA, an online network that offshoots from Hispanic broadcaster Univision.

The web-based company have created a series of videos of the best fans in world football, and the United States make it in there.

The minute long clip highlights American fans confusing soccer and football and they’re total commitment to awful beers like Budweiser over foreign brands. Oh, and the assumption that they are the best at everything ever, even better barbecues than the Brazilians themselves.

There will certainly be hordes of red, white and blue partying if the USMNT make it out of their Group of Death.
