Adam Wainwright has American flag painted on face in support of U.S. Men’s National Team
Later on today, the U.S. Men’s National Team will face Portugal in what could be one of the more memorable matches in American soccer history.
A win would see the USA advance from the World Cup group stage and make their matchup against Germany next Thursday for the top spot in Group G.
USA’s 2-1 win over Ghana last Monday drew unprecedented ratings, becoming the most viewed men’s soccer match ever on ESPN or ESPN2, via Forbes. Sunday’s match will surely be appointment viewing as well and among those pumped for game is St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright.
Wainwright showed up to the ballpark prior to the Cardinals’ game on Sunday with an American flag painted over his entire face and struck quite the fierce pose for the media.
It’s safe to say Adam is ready for the biggest U.S. men’s soccer match in four years. Are you?
