RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL — USA soccer fans will be a strong presence in the FIFA Fan Fest zone on Copacabana Beach in Rio for their opening World Cup match against Ghana this evening.
Ghana has eliminated the USA in the last World Cup finals, so the USA is out for revenge. Space Coast Daily has spoken to two USA soccer fans who’ve made the long journey across the globe to support their team.
Eric Wong from San Fransisco and Joshua Silvester from New Jersey have just arrived in Rio and Space Coast Daily spoke to them as they were preparing to head out to join the large numbers of their fellow countrymen in the Fan Fest.
Ghana only has 25 million inhabitants and is only the size of the state of Oregon. Eric and Josh told SCD that they’re confident that the USA will finally make its third time lucky, and come out on top.
