Michigan soccer fans celebrate USA victory over Ghana in the World Cup opening round
Soccer fans packed World Cup watch parties across Michigan Monday evening.
In Flint, dozens of people packed a downtown sports bar to cheer Team USA to its 2-1 victory over Ghana. The watch party doubled as a fundraiser to collect money to help rehab Flint’s 85-year-old Atwood Stadium.
“It’s encouraging,” says Tom Saxton, Michigan State University’s women’s soccer coach, “The game gets better and better every year in the United States, and we're excited to be a part of it.”
Next up for Team USA is a very strong Portugal team.
