VIDEO: KICKTV's "Ultimate Grp. G Preview" asks "will USA win World Cup before England?" | SIDELINE

It's a question that 10 years ago — perhaps even just four years ago — wouldn't have required more than a couple seconds of thought, a scratch of the chin and a shake of the head before dismissing it as a silly notion.

But, with the sport of soccer trending upward so severely in the United States while the quality is trending downward in Englandtrollololololol — KICKTV and their faux journalist extraordinaire (his words, not mine) Jimmy Conrad felt it was worth some discussion.

After dropping by Seattle in last week's episode, Conradinho takes to the mean streets of Portland, Oregon, to get some answers for episode No. 10 of KICKTV's "Ultimate Group G Preview," highlighting the so-called "Group of Death" at this summer's World Cup.

And, of course, he's going to help "Keep Portland Weird."

As always, the entire "Ultimate Group G Preview" series is available on KICKTV's YouTube channel. Each and every video, full of information and opinion on the USMNT's three World Cup opponents, is well worth a watch.
