St. Louis is known to be home to lots of soccer fans. Well, you can add St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright to their ranks.
Wainwright, who missed his previous start against the Mets on Monday, gave up just one run on six scattered hits while striking out seven in eight innings in a pitching duel with Cole Hamels yesterday.
This morning, he showed up to Busch Stadium in full World Cup spirit.
Team USA faces off against Portugal in the FIFA World Cup Sunday at 5:00pm local time. If they win, they’ll advance to the round of 16.
