HOUSTON -- The World Cup is arguably the most captivating sporting event on the planet.

Hundreds of millions will tune in to the Cup's coverage, and outside of the U.S., it's without a doubt the largest sporting event of the decade. Most notably so far, the Netherlands usurped last year's reigning champion Spain in a brutal 5-1 loss, making Spain's loss the worst comeback performance for a reigning champ in the World Cup's history. In their opening game, Team USA defeated Ghana 2-1 and will face off against Portugal on Sunday, June 22, 2014 at 5 p.m. on ESPN.
