NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Die-hard USA soccer fans bleed red, white, and blue.
“I don’t like Belgium today, it’s America,” Joey Marroccoli said.
Soccer fans are boycotting this Belgium breakfast, all for the love of the game.
“No Belgian waffles, no more, none. Belgian waffles, we eat you for breakfast,” Diane Wszalek said.
Even Waffle House is boycotting Belgian waffles to support Team USA. Waffle House is telling customers to only eat American-made waffles, like the ones they serve. The difference between Belgian waffles and American waffles is how they’re made.
For these soccer fans, boycotting Belgian waffles isn’t just a silly superstition.
“It’s a way for us to rally around our team.”
“People say soccer is boring, but the fact of the matter is that you have the whole country behind you,” Erik Wszalek said.
