Johnny Manziel has apparently become so popular that his nickname is getting used for newspaper headlines about stories that have nothing to do with the Cleveland Browns’ quarterback.
The United States men’s national team won its opening World Cup match against Ghana Monday, 2-1. Scoring the game-winning goal was John Brooks, the 21-year-old defender, or, as the Philadelphia Inquirer refers to him, “Johnny Futbol.”

The U.S. team next plays Sunday against Portugal. Manziel doesn’t begin his Browns’ season until September.
