Brace yourselves for the cliches. Come this Thursday, 32 countries across the world will gather in Russia to lay claim to the most prestigious sports championship possible. While football is king in the United States, the highest honor to quite literally almost everyone else on Earth is the World Cup. Since the United States Men’s National Team won’t be making an appearance after not qualifying, the soccer gods (me) have decided that an NFL team gets to send over it’s top collection of talent with a late-joining 33rd roster to join the fray.
In this instance, I was tasked with creating a World Cup team out of current Bears players.
