The United States voted itself favourite to win and is also least favoured by everyone else. In a poll taken by Upshot, the USA is the only country of 19 countries polled to have picked themselves to win the World Cup. USA was also one of the most popular votes for who everyone was rooting against. Even against the odds and the majority of the world rooting against them, the United States still somehow remains confident in their abilities.
The photo above shows American fans as the game winning goal was made against Ghana. This fascinating Vine video shows twitter activity in the US right at that second.

It is amazing to see the progression of both football and The Children’s Society after all these years.

The analysts at Google find interesting pieces of data to write about each country, such as comparing the number of searches about Mario Balotelli to those about Super Mario Bros. in Italy or the popularity of the World Cup vs. the NBA Finals in the United States. The page provides a different, exciting point of view for the Cup.
