All-Sports Museum To Host World Cup Viewing Sunday

by on June 22, 2014 7:45 AM

The United States will take on Portugal in the World Cup soccer tournament on Sunday at 6 p.m. and Centre County residents can do their part and support the US team at Penn State's All-Sports Museum.

A World Cup viewing party will take place in the Clemen’s Family Theater inside the museum.

With the game between Germany and Ghana ending in a 2-2 draw on Saturday, a win by the United States would clinch a spot in the World Cups' knockout round of 16 teams. A draw against Portugal,  forward Cristiano Ronaldo would increase the likelihood the American side would advance but would not guarantee it.

The United States won its opening World Cup match this past Monday in a 2-1 thriller over African powerhouse Ghana.

Sunday night's game will begin at  6 p.m. on ESPN. Doors for the event inside the All-Sports Museum will open at 5 p.m. and the first 60 guests will receive a USA flag and a noisemaker. The event is free and open to the public, light refreshments will be served. 

The US will complete the group stage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup next Thursday at noon against Germany.
