US and England in same World Cup Group! Yes!

What an exciting World Cup Draw yesterday on ESPN 2 for the 2010 World Cup in Cape Town, South Africa!

Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare yourself now and mark your calendars for Saturday, June 12, 2010 for the match of the ages---USA versus England at 1:30 pm CST in the World Cup!

England. The birthplace of soccer. The center of the soccer world. Across the pond. The home of the best soccer conference in all the land, The English Premier Soccer League (EPL).  Of course they have the right and the cockiness to be confident and over confident about a wipeout victory.

America. The home of football. The other kind of football. The Yanks. After an impressive run in the CONCACAF this past year, the US Team is poised for a great World Cup. Of course we will be underdogs against the Brits. We have an excellent team and we very well may pull off the upset of the century. What a match up, what a game ! I cannot wait for this special special once in a lifetime event.
Who would of thought that England and USA would have been picked (out of the hat no less) to be in the same group!

Okay, let's be real for a moment. After the loss of Charlie Davies and Oguchi Onyewu, we may not be deep enough to go extremely far. Landon Donovon however is probably finally ready for prime time on the international stage! And if we lose to England, we are going to have to win, and not tie, against Slovenia and Algeria, the other 2 countries in our group!

It's setting up to be a first class 2010 World Cup!
