The U.S. men’s soccer team triumphed over Iran yesterday, November 29th, with a 1-0 victory. Upon winning the match, the electric crowd of U.S.A. fans burst into the most American chant you could imagine. “It’s called soccer!” could be heard roaring through the stadium for miles, no doubt.

The U.S. is to face off against the Netherlands on Saturday, December 3rd. Let’s hope they can keep this momentum going.
