Sports fans with all different rooting interests have banded together to support the USMNT in the World Cup, but there is still room for a barb or two between rivals, especially when it comes to Twitter. With less than an hour before the U.S. begins its knockout round match with Belgium, Arizona Athletics tweeted at Arizona State Athletics to make sure the Sun Devils weren’t pulling for Belgium, whose soccer team is nicknamed the “Red Devils.”
Hey @TheSunDevils, since Belgium’s nickname is the “Red Devils,” does that mean you’re rooting for Belgium? 😉

We’re sure that Arizona State is on the right side of this one, but well played Wildcats, well played.
