We're all pretty down today after Team USA's heroic exit from the FIFA World Cup yesterday.
Despite Tim Howard's record breaking performance Klinsmen's men went down 2-1 to Belgium after extra-time. It was Heartbreaking.
Then we remembered this infographic, put together by our colleagues at Expert Market UK. The USA may not be winners on the soccer pitch, but we're still number one in the world of business!
The infographic takes the biggest company from each country that qualified for the World Cup and plays them off against each other. Each game is won by the company with the highest revenue.
Thanks to Walmart having the highest revenue of any company in the world America is able to bring the trophy home.
The USA's Run
Let's have a more detailed look at Team USA's run to business World Cup Glory:
Match 1: USA (Walmart $469.2 billion) beat Ghana (Gold Fields Mining $2.3 billion)
Match 2: beat Portugal (Galp Energia $24.4 billion)
Match 3: beat Germany (Volkswagen Group $254 billion)

So while USA have some work to do to conquer the world of soccer, we're still leading the way in the world of business.
If only the real World Cup had played out like this. It would have been great to watch Team USA go up against soccer powerhouses like France and Netherlands and come way victorious.
Oh well, let's go again in four more years!
