World Cup success will lead to soccer popularity in the US

The performance of the USA team at the 2010 World Cup will improve the popularity of soccer in America according to a new poll.

Text answer service kgb.com created a poll that asked 'Will soccer become more popular in the US as a result of America's success at the World Cup?' with 68% answering 'Yes'.

Bob Bradley's team topped Group C in South Africa before going down in extra-time to African nation Ghana in the Round of 16 but their showing was not lost on American fans who are confident the sport will grow legs.
