The 2014 World Cup is in the books. 

Darrius Barnes joined SportsNet Central to discuss how the success of the World Cup will affect the MLS.

"The U.S. having a good showing and getting out of the 'group of death' definitely propelled U.S. soccer," said Barnes. "Maybe it's only an inch, but I felt like just from the World Cup soccer was able to gain some fans."

"Just being able to see such great product on the field and seeing great players, having two heavyweights in the final, people are aware of that… I think it can only go forward from here."
