  • Good topic choice Hugo! Soccer has a huge history so your summary should have been longer. You should have included your thoughts as well. 

  • I can't really say for sure if the Harlan soccer team, boys or girls, will go super far this year. We'll have to see! We definitely have some really good and promising player, I'm not sure what team I'd play for and I don't know too much about the World Cup so I don't know who will win that either.

  • I don't know a lot about the Harlan soccer team this year, but I know some of the players, and it seems promising. I don't follow soccer very closely, so I don't know a lot about teams, but I would probably play for the USA. I don't know who will win the world cup.

  • I don't really know much about this years harlan soccer team, but I think we have some good players. We might go far, but I'm unsure. I'm not sure what team I would play for since I don't know many teams. Not sure who is going to win the 2026 world cup. 

  • I think the harlan soccer team will do really good this year, though there is a lot of first timers and new people. I'm not a huge soccer fan though so I would have to stay more updated about it to even think about the world cup.

  • I think that the Harlan team will do pretty good this year. I am not sure what soccer team I would play for because I do not know much about the different teams. I am not much of a soccer fan, I think it could be fun to play, but I never learned, so I don't really pay attention to it.

  • I am not sure if we will make it that far but we will see. I am not to sure who I would want to play for but probably Chelsea. I am not sure who is going to win the world cup but it will be interesting.

  • Yes. Idk who id play for. Germany.

  • I don't know how our soccer teams will do this year, but I think if they work at it they could go far. I would probably play for the USA team because Alex Morgan is on that team and because thats where I'm from. I don't know who will win the 2026 World Cup.

  • No I don't think so, soccer is probably one of my least favorite sport. Any ways if I had a team to play for it would be America, cause America's great, and I think that the 2026 world cup will go to I don't even know, I can't see the future.
