Soccer + History

Being at the intersection of soccer and history, I'm really liking this video from Duke University professor Laurent Dubois. He discusses the role of soccer in colonization and how quickly Algerians and Egyptians appropriated the sport into their own cultures. Though I'm pulling for the US to get out of Group C, what a match it would be if France and Algeria squared off in the knock-out stage.
