If TV ratings are any indication of the interest in soccer in the United States, then the sport is clearly continuing its ascent.
The U.S. men's national team's 2-1 loss to Ghana on Saturday was the most-watched World Cup match among households and viewers, according to ESPN.
The two-and-a-half-hour match window averaged an 8.2 rating, 9,455,000 households and 14,863,000 viewers based on fast nationals.
The match ranks as the most-watched Men's World Cup game ever, with the 1999 Women's Final between the United States and China being the only soccer match to average more households and viewers. Those numbers are 11,307,000 and 17,975,000, respectively.
What do you think of USA-Ghana being the most-watched match of the World Cup? Feel the United States' performance at the World Cup will help propel soccer to the next level in this country?
