World Cup Fever Hits Wilmington

JUNE 12, 2006 -- Local soccer fans gathered Monday to cheer on Team USA in the World Cup.

Coaches and players for the Wilmington Hammerheads watched the game at Old Chicago Monday afternoon.

The U.S. team lost 3-0 to the Czech Republic. The loss was not the outcome everyone hoped for, but that didn't stop the fans from cheering.

The U.S. team will take on Italy Saturday.
