Andrew Luck is excited about the USMNT at the World Cup

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The United States Men's National Team faces Belgium today in the round of 16 in the World Cup, and several Colts have caught the World Cup fever, including quarterback Andrew Luck, who is in Brazil for the match.

In case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard, the United States Men's National Team advanced out of the "group of death" into the round of 16 and will face Belgium today at 4:00 eastern time in the World Cup.  The winner of the game will advance to play Argentina, who won earlier today in a thriller over Switzerland as Angel Di Maria scored off an assist from Lionel Messi in the 118th minute.

Several Colts players have been following along with the World Cup, but perhaps no player is as much of a die-hard soccer fan as quarterback Andrew Luck.  In fact, during this month off from football, Luck traveled to Brazil to attend the World Cup.  He'll be in attendance today rooting on the United States in their huge game:

A few weeks ago, a day after the thrilling opening win for the U.S. over Ghana, Andrew Luck was (of course) asked about it by the Colts media:

Did you watch the World Cup yesterday?

"Yes, I definitely watched the World Cup. I had trouble falling asleep out of excitement for today and also excitement about last night. I'm proud to be an American, that's for sure."

Who are you pulling for today?

"It doesn't matter, the U.S. isn't playing."

Today, the U.S. is playing, and Luck will definitely be watching - he's there.  Back in Indiana, the Indy Eleven are hosting a World Cup viewing party in downtown Indianapolis.

Other Colts players are getting excited for the game today as well:

The Colts are clearly feeling patriotic and are rooting for the U.S. Men's National Team today, and I am too.  I can't wait for the game and will definitely be watching, and if that's you as well, then you can consider this as an open thread while you watch it.
