I would not say that no one cares. There were many viewing parties throughout the U.S. to watch the Ghana-U.S. match which was VERY exciting.
The U.S. tends to have some exciting matches in the World Cup...Landon Donovan's last minute goal, the surprise win over Portugal in 2002, etc.
I did not see the Spain-Netherlands match but the result was shocking. I like both sides..maybe this is the year of the Netherlands. Who knows?
(En realidad todo el mundo quiere un juego final entre Brasil y Argentina. No?)
