Or, you know, in support of a fun day of gassing down beers and having a good time. It's a great way for fans to get a little extra enjoyment out of their favorite sport. It's also the perfect way for an American who could care less about Soccer to have some equity over the outcome of the game.
Extra special for the American is that playing the World Cup drinking game will make you feel better when USA eventually loses. And they will.
These rules can be used in Olympic Soccer play as well as for UEFA Champions league. You could also use them for your college team as well.
