    I cannot imagine they will have Gooch play significant minutes against the English. I could see them using him as a sub or maybe start him, but sub him at half time. I just do not see how you can play the guy significant minutes when he has not played a full game since he was injured in October.

    I think he would be more of a liability back there.

    I think Landon's play is the key for the US making it out of our group. If he plays like he did at the last World Cup you can kiss our chance goodbye. If he plays to the form he has been then we should make it out with England.

    I love the passion that ensures from fans. Some in England go to unbelievable lengths to show their support. That kind of things bring people in communities together in a way that doesn't happen all that often. For example, the british government agreeing to fly the flag of St. George above the houses of parliment for the duration of the world cup that England are in.

    Certainly in Enlgand, Football brings out a passion and euphoria that is seldom seen in other aspects of life, and in a way that is quite incredible considering it is simply a sport.

    It becomes acceptable to get carried away, and unite over something, that is the grand scheme of things, is actually relatively unimportant!








    I agree the girls arn't bad either

    I like watching the US progress as a soccer nation and attempt to get better through each world cup. I hope that one day we'll get to a point where we are one of the world's best and can win a World cup. I think that's definitely possible if we continue to progress.

    It's only a matter of time IMO Suave...

    Those two english girls are ****ing on fire! Wow...

    And finally, ESPN just said USA coaching staff and Gooch think he is good to go, and he will start and apparently likely play 90 minutes against England.

    I think Uruguay and Serbia are being underrated. Wouldn't surprise me to see them both in the quarterfinals.

    Even after they lost Drogba?

    I think they're toast.

    Although, I do think it will be one of the African nations that surprises.

    well yea - Drogba is out - hence I think they are more of an underdog now...more than ever...

    PS - for everyone who would be stuck at work...try this site to catch the matches:
    http://www.eurovisionsports.tv/fifaworldcup/

    This is a valid link in Europe - I dunno about US...worth a try though...

    Hate to get all Lee Corso on an IU guy, but "NOT SO FAST, MY FRIEND!!"

    Didier Drogba could play in Ivory Coast's World Cup opener despite breaking his arm against Japan on 4 June, says coach Sven-Goran Eriksson.
    Chelsea striker Drogba, 32, needed surgery after sustaining the injury and his arm was in a sling on arrival in Johannesburg on Thursday.

    "If it had been today or tomorrow, he wouldn't play," said Eriksson ahead of the 15 June clash against Portugal.

    "But there are still some days - he might play against them."

    Ivory Coast take on Portugal in Group G in the coastal city of Port Elizabeth.


    Their tough pool also includes five-time winners Brazil and North Korea.

    "It is a difficult group, but we will be well prepared and we will do everything to play well against the other teams," added the former England coach.

    Drogba suffered the injury in Sion, Switzerland, in a collision with Japan defender Marcus Tulio Tanaka - three minutes after the Chelsea forward had opened the scoring with a 13th-minute deflected free-kick.

    The Elephants, for whom Drogba has scored 44 goals in 69 appearances, went on to clinch victory with Manchester City defender Kolo Toure netting their second goal.

    Afterwards, Eriksson refused to blame Tanaka for the incident.

    "It was unlucky," the 62-year-old Ivory Coast boss said at the time. "It wasn't bad or stupid. He didn't want to hurt anyone. Football is a game of contact."

    Drogba is the current African Player of the Year and scored 37 goals in all competitions for Chelsea last season as the west Londoners won the Premier League and FA Cup Double.

    Nah, atleast two players need to be infront of the receiver at the time of the pass.

    edit: little too slow there

    Holy crap! That South African left back better wake up... quite a few things he's doing that I'm sure are not part of his role/jobdescription, while leaving the left back area... almost unguarded on several occasions, leading to potentially very dangerous situations.

    Nice to see the host country starting to creat a little bit in the final 10 minutes of the first half. Maybe they were a little more nervous then normal, not uncommon for the first match the host country in a World Cup tournament.
