Minihane: Don't pretend World Cup will lead to some ‘boom'


After the 2013 Men's World Cup, it appeared that soccer finally arrived in the United States.

Soccer may have taken another step forward on Sunday night as 26.7 million viewers tuned in to the 2015 Women's World Cup final between the United States and Japan.

Krik Minihane still isn't convinced.

"Please stop telling me women's soccer is going to take off in this country. It is not," said Minihane. "What last night was, was an event - like the men's World Cup every four years, just like Michael Phelps swimming every four years… It's a television event. Nothing more, nothing less."
