Astronauts on the International Space Station join the World Cup frenzy

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: As fans around the world tune in to World Cup 2014, a few fans out of this world will be watching, too. Astronauts Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson of the United States and German astronaut Alexander Gerst will be cheering on their teams from some 230 miles above Earth aboard the International Space Station. The crew sent down a special message to wish good luck to all the players and teams as they compete in World Cup 2014 in Brazil from June 12 until the final match July 13. The astronauts have trained for years to work together as a unified crew, but the U.S. astronauts and their German crewmate are feeling a little friendly competition: their home countries will play against each other for a chance to advance out of Group G of the World Cup matches. USA and Germany face off on June 26 In Recife.
