The 80's Til' Now!

So how far do World Cup soccer players run during one game?


The 2014 World Cup is the most watched soccer match in U.S. history...the U.S./Portugal game the other night was the biggest U.S. audience EVER for a soccer game -- 24.7 million viewers.

So here's something we were asking while watching the game at a restaurant -- how far do those players run total during a game? I found the answer

7 miles!

Even more if you're a ref. BTW: Most oddsmakers currently have Brazil to win the 2014 tournament, followed by Germany, Argentina, and Spain.
