World Cup Viewer’s Guide: US seeks repeat of 1950 upset

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — When the U.S. team faced England for the first time in the World Cup, the hastily assembled U.S. team was a motley crew that included a postman, a gravedigger, a dishwasher and a school teacher. The 1-0 upset in 1950 is often compared to the “miracle on ice” victory over the Soviet Union at the Lake Placid Olympics in 1980, one of the most important moments in American sports history. Seventy-two years later, the gap between the two national football teams is not nearly as wide as it was when England and the United States played in Group B on Friday. Wales take on Iran, Qatar take on Senegal and the Netherlands take on Ecuador in other games.

AL RAYYAN, Qatar (AP) — South Korea and Uruguay started their World Cup campaign with a 0-0 draw. The draw at Education City Stadium was another early World Cup game where the favorites stumbled. Both Argentina and Germany lost their opening games in major upsets. South Korea striker Son Heung-min wore a mask to protect his injured left eye socket, and his side always looked more likely to score against the more experienced Uruguayan.

Prices of professional sports teams keep going up, inflation or not

Inflation doesn’t hurt sports team owners’ funds. In fact, it might help. While the ultra-wealthy will have to pay a little more for eggs at the grocery store — just like everyone else — inflation is unlikely to affect the bottom line of their sports fortunes. Sports business analysts say the extra cost of running these teams is like a rounding error for a multibillion-dollar franchise. When the stock market goes bad, sports teams hold their value better than other investments. There are currently several major professional teams on the market, including Premier League teams Manchester United and Liverpool. If the NFL’s Washington Commanders are sold, it could break the record for the highest price for a sports team.
