    Coach Phillips can be seen at the 2:33 mark


    Following the 2014 FIFA World Cup match between the United States and Germany on Thursday (June 26), UIC head men's soccer coach Sean Phillips took a moment to speak with ABC 7 Chicago on the growing popularity of soccer.

    "I look at all my friends who I grew up with who said soccer will never make it, soccer will never make it, and I think it has," Phillips said. "We are a 20-year old professional league and we are shattering ratings all over the place."
