US man 'feels he could almost get into soccer'

The USA's remarkable Confederations Cup triumph against Egypt has gripped the nation and one Seattle man has even revealed he 'could almost imagine' subscribing to the Fox Soccer Channel.

In a bizarre twist of events, the US secured a place in the final four of the Confederations Cup with a 3-0 win over Egypt after world champions Italy were eviscerated by Brazil.

Strangely, the historic evening didn't bring America to a euphoric standstill, but Clint Dempsey's winner did have an impact.

Ethan Douglas of Seattle, Washington watched 'most of the soccer' during a rain break in the Tampa Bay Devil Rays'-New York Mets baseball game and seems to have fallen in love with the beautiful game.

"Honestly it wasn't that bad," Mr Douglas said. "I turned over to Fox and I saw like three goals before the Mets came back on. 

"Maybe sometime if there's no (American) football, baseball, (ice) hockey or basketball on I'd pay to watch it."
