A Guide to the World Cup, Part Four


In this edition of Guide to the World Cup, you’ll get a quick look at the teams competing in this year’s World Cup. The US will likely field more players that ply their trade in MLS than any previous World Cup, and MLS has really ratcheted up the content available to fans with the introduction of KickTV,  a YouTube channel that produces daily video content  covering many aspects of the beautiful game in the US and abroad. In the run up to Brazil, they are putting out a series called “World Cup Crash Course” with the help of the soccer magazine, Howler.  Just click the name of a country and you will get a quick “Crash Course” on that country’s soccer team. (This list will be updated as more videos are released.)
