World Cup hype is growing across the United States with 15.4 million viewers watching the USA’s 0-0 England draw, a new record for a men’s soccer match on US television.

The World Cup is taking hold in the United States, with new record audience figures recorded for a soccer match as the United States drew 0-0 with England on Friday.

There were 15.4 million viewers in the US for the match, the most-watched men’s soccer match on American English-language television.

While the match was scoreless, the USA were the better team and looked more likely to defeat England, the pre-match favorite to win the game and one of the favorites to win the tournament overall.

There were 15.4 million viewers in the United States when the United States drew 0-0 with England in the World Cup.

It was an impressive display by the USMNT and they have a chance to reach the round of 16.

It’s also an increase of nearly four million from the opener against Wales, which the US drew 1-1.

There were 11.7 million viewers for that opener of Group B, the USMNT’s first World Cup game in eight years after failing to qualify for the 2018 competition in Russia.

The result against England means the USA must beat Iran on Tuesday to reach the round of 16 of the tournament.

The highest English-language soccer TV audience in the US was in 2015: 25.4 million watched the US Women’s World Cup final.

The growth of US soccer is especially important as the US will co-host the World Cup in 2026, along with Canada and Mexico.
