Rocco Soccer USA Mug
It was a quiet summer for the American men's soccer team. While they did not participate in the world tourney, let us celebrate its history. The USA were one of 13 countries to take part in the very first tournament in Uruguay in 1930, making it all the way to the semi-finals. The US would also qualify for the second tournament in Italy, 1934.
The Americans then participated in the first tourney since WWII - Brazil, 1950. And while the team finished last in Group 2, they shocked the soccer world with a huge upset of England, 1-0.
And then for the next 40 years on the world stage, nothing happened!
Until 1990 when the US returned to Italy and have been a regular participant in the world tournament ever since...
...until 2018. Sigh. Here's to 2022!
Perfect for coffee, tea and hot chocolate, this microwaveable classic shape white, durable ceramic mug in the most popular size.
