So, not long to June 12th when England play the USA in South Africa group C in the World Cup.So how good is the USA this year ?
I guess England will have to watch out for Landon Donovan who is one of your best players & I hear Jose Torres is pretty skilful.
Slovenia & Algeria shouldn't be too hard to beat so it looks like its a fight between us (England) & you to be top of the group.

I don't follow soccer too closely but the U.S. team appears to be one of the better ones we've fielded in the past decade. I've been on a few cruises during the World Cup and get caught up in it with the crew since most come from countries where "football" is THE GAME.

Who knows? I agree that Slovenia and Algeria might be easy wins but then again teams often play better than they are expected to when in the World Cup, especially with teams from less developed countries where national pride can make a big difference and carry the day.

I don't follow soccer at all. I might have to give that a watch though and root for the USA. Anyone know the broadcast schedule and what sports networks will carry it?

Today it's England v USA

The match can be seen in USA at 2:30 eastern on ABC or ESPN if anyones interested.

I think USA have got a decent side and should play well today.Anyone going to listen to the radio or watch ?
A long time ago you actually beat England 1-0.

We're watching most of the games today (right now it's S. Korea vs. Greece). No favorites overall, we just enjoy the sport.

I wonder how the U.S. hooligans compare to the English hooligans?

Well the game ended 1-1 as a draw.
England went ahead in the 4th minute and should have won the game except that in the 40th minute Dempsey ( USA ) shot at goal and our goalkeeper completely made a hash of it and let the ball in.
Slovenia have beaten Algeria 1-0 today and are now top of the group.
