    Any American's on the forum gonna be watching this World Cup?

    I know you lot aren't too keen on "Soccer", but the US play England on Saturday (19.30 UK time). It should be a good game. The US side has really improved over the last few years, I reckon it will be a tough match.

    I would watch, but the USA team is going to win by at least 2 touchdowns making this a boring game.;) hehehe
    yeah, we Americans hate soccer, NOT!

    I am very interested in the World Cup, even watched the opening ceremonies.
    I think the game between USA and England is going to set the tone for USA players.

    There are some really good teams this time, I look forward to it.

    Yeah, so are Canada and Mexico. But unless one specifically mentions North, South or Central it is assumed to be USA, especially when the game is between USA and UK :)

    And BTW there are more than one UKs as well :)

    Absolutely they were. Green will be having nightmares about that for the next 5-10 years!

    Overall, a decent start for the USA. Lets see what the next two matches bring...this time the USA (Americans ;)) will be favored.


    I have not seen the televised schedule, but there are some very interesting matches in the next 2 weeks.
