Fútbol season is heating up as we inch closer to the World Cup this year. For any Americans looking for optimism, last time the U.S. should have beaten Portugal and was eliminated by a Belgium team featuring Kevin de Bruyne, Thibaut Courtois and Lukaku. De Bruyne and Courtois are arguably the best in the world at their respective positions. This time America has Christian Pulisic so hopefully the U.S. knocks off a European power this year.
