New World Cup Trivia
Think you know your U.S. Soccer trivia? Well...try us. We'll see how far back your knowledge of Team USA and U.S. Soccer extends. And who the heck is Jack Marshall? Even the trivia buffs in the U.S. Soccer Communications Department would be hard pressed to tell you that one Jack Marshall received his one and only cap way back in 1926. Okay, that was pretty much impossible. They get easier. We give you four questions each month, 1 to 4, easy to hard.

With Korea/Japan 2002 having come and gone, we now have all new facts and figures to trivialize in a second installment of World Cup-themed questions.

Questions:
Q1 (Difficulty level 1 of 4):
Name the only country to win five World Cup titles?
Q2 (2 of 4): Who is the only U.S. player to score goals in two different World Cups?
Q3 (3 of 4): Only two countries have won a World Cup outside their own continent.  Name them.
Q4 (4 of 4): What is the only country to give up more than 100 total goals in World Cup history?
