I’m sure I’m not the first to point this out, but the USA, not Germany, is the third-best football team in the world. My reasoning? Italy won, so they are #1. Only two teams scored any goals against Italy: France in the final, and Italy with an own goal against the US. So France is second best. Only one team did not lose against Italy: the USA tied in the first round. So the USA is #3! We’re number three! wooooo!
