More people from America bought tickets to this World Cup than any other country and it seems the game has taken off in the US over the past month. We've been providing a fantastic range of prizes to Fox Soccer Channel, who have been broadcasting a post-game show across the US throughout the tournament.

Fernando Torres recently conducted his sixth signing for icons; we are delighted to have a new range of products available.
Fans will be excited to learn we have photos from two of Liverpool's greatest victories last season, showing Fernando's celebrations after scoring against both Real Madrid and Manchester United.
We also have a limited edition of embroidered Euro 2008 Spain shirts. There are currently no more of these shirts available on the market so it is unlikely we will be able to offer this product again in the future.
Check back soon when we will be unveiling a new, very limited edition shirt signed with his special El Nino signature.

The icons summer sale starts today and there's never been a better time to pick up a great deal on our superb football memorabilia.
We've knocked £50 off our Cristiano Ronaldo signed Champions League shirts and with Ronnie nearing the Old Trafford exit door this is likely to be the last time any Man Utd shirts are available from an official signing session. At only £149.99 they are likely to be a sound investment.
Also reduced from Ronaldo are signed action photographs of him celebrating his goal in the Champions League final - down from £99.99 to £79.99, a saving of 20%.
If you're after Chelsea memorabilia then Deco shirts at £39.99 are an incredible bargain, while Spurs fans can get 20% off Jimmy Greaves shirts at £79.99.
Keep checking back for the latest special offers.

Is Cristiano Ronaldo only the 50th best player ever to play for Manchester United? Not even as good as Andy, sorry, Andrew Cole?
The Times released their list of the 50 best footballers to play for Manchester United this week, and as always with these lists there were some surprising choices.
Sir Bobby Charlton headed the 50 at number one: survivor of the Munich air crash, inspiration at Wembley 68 and chief protagonist behind bringing Alex Ferguson to Old Trafford, it's hard to argue against those credentials.
George Best, one of the most charismatic and skilful players not only of the Sixties but of all time, was second, with Munich victim Duncan Edwards at number three.
The enigmatic Eric Cantona came in at fourth, with captain marvel Bryan Robson at five, while record appearance holder Ryan Giggs was ranked seven.
Icons has a great choice of Man Utd memorabilia available from the players. Number is where they came in the Times ranking.
50 Cristiano Ronaldo memorabilia
42 Jaap Stam memorabilia
35 Teddy Sheringham memorabilia
8 Denis Law memorabilia
7 Ryan Giggs memorabilia
5 Bryan Robson memorabilia
4 Eric Cantona memorabilia
2 George Best memorabilia
1 Bobby Charlton memorabilia

We're delighted at icons to have completed our third official signing session with Barcelona and Argentina striker Lionel Messi.
Alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Messi is currently regarded as the world's best footballer and we are pleased that they both choose only to sign merchandise with the world's fastest growing and most reputable sports memorabilia shop online.
Leo was in fine form when we met him in Barcelona the day after the club's frustrating goalless draw with Chelsea. Although not naturally gregarious, he was joking and chatting throughout, and has clearly become comfortable carrying the weight of expectations from fans of both Barca and Argentina. Three years ago he was shy and quiet - now when he was mobbed by fans in the hotel lobby, he seemed to find it amusing.
He was confident the Catalans could get a result at Stamford Bridge; and Iniesta's injury-time goal proved him right.
Leo signed a range of shirts for us; Barcelona home, Barcelona away, Argentina home and Argentina away. He also autographed a number of photos for us, including a reprint montage of his Maradona wonder goal, which sold out so quickly last time.
We also have a very, very limited number of signed Leo Messi boots available. These are not yet for sale on the shop, so ring customer services now if you want to secure one for yourself.

It's maybe an exaggeration to say that Liverpool's 1-4 win at Old Trafford blew the title race open, but at the very least it gave the Merseyside faithful some bragging rights.
Fernando Torres took his goal superbly to level the scores after Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty and you have to wonder how many points the Anfield side would have accumulated had El Nino been fit all season.
Liverpool FC achieved the result wearing their grey away shirt and any fan wishing to remember the great day should act quickly to bag themselves one of our limited-edition signed Fernando Torres Liverpool away shirts.
To mark the victory we've knocked £14 - yes, that's ONE FOUR - off the price. Fernando signed only ten of these at our last session with him, so these signed shirts are a fantastic item of sports memorabilia.

Investing in celebrity autographs is safer than stocks or savings, the Sun reported yesterday. The value of Sir Paul McCartney's signature has risen from £125 ten years ago to £1500 today.
Stamp specialists Stanley Gibbons, who were behind the index, said: "People see autographs as something tangible."
Read the full story here.
If you want to invest in football memorabilia, then we suggest our England 1966 replica shirt, signed by ten of the winning team, including the late Alan Ball. Stocks are dwindling and for obvious reasons will never be replaced.

Ryan Giggs completed another signing session for us on Tuesday in Manchester. Ryan was in fine form after his man-of-the-match performance against Chelsea at the weekend. As always, Ryan had time to stop and chat to his fans before getting down to business.
Ryan, who has been working with icons since 1999, signed a number of shirts, boots and photos for us, which will be available for sale shortly. Look out for the blue away kit with the special badge commemorating the European Cup win over Benfica 40 years ago, when of course, United wore the same colours. Only 10 of these were signed, making this a very rare piece of sports memorabilia. Ring our order line now if you want to reserve one of these for yourself.
Ryan also signed a number of photos of his amazing solo goal in the 1999 FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal. This classic image always flies off the shelves – there's something about the way he waltzed through the Gunners' famous back five before revealing the hairiest chest in football that Utd fans love – and for the first time it is available in a larger size of 20 inches by 16 inches.
