Child Unimpressed by Clint Dempsey's World Cup Goal (VIDEO)

Feeling a little left out during World Cup madness? Just don’t care about soccer that much? (Ssshh, they’ll hear you.) You’re not alone.

Gabe White, of Port St. Lucie, Florida, is a big soccer fan. He and his wife and son were watching the U.S.-Portugal match Sunday night, though one of his sons decided his time would be better spent playing with his wrestling figures.

“They love it so much,” he adds, wistfully shaking his head. “Our team – I guess – scored a goal.”

“Now let’s get back to wrestling.”
