I'm a bit surprised. I honestly didn't think people cared much for soccer.

I'm just really surprised that anyone would like it, that's all. I most likely would've made a similar comment for any other sport.

I would have thought it would be the Madden series, go figure.

Only in the USA soccer isn't popular. In the rest of the world it's the number 1 sport.

The World Cup IS the biggest sport event there is. That alone should tell you something.

People in EU don't really buy that much Madden and NBA and MLB....they buy FIFA.

People in the USA buy Madden and NBA and MLB, but they also buy FIFA.

Why is this so suprising?
