      No, we are to busy keeping up with the NBA Championships, MLB Baseball, and the start of real NFL/BCS Football season.  However, if we win, you know we will be on the bandwagon.

      Well actually they will be playing football with England, since England is just one of four countries which make up 'Great Britain'.

      I know what you mean, I turned on the first match yesterday and thought it was being attacked by a swarm of giant insects fro the noise. Not a bad match though, well done South Africa for putting in a decent performance against a better team.

    Is Beckham playing for England?  Whether he is or not, England will win.  They are better at soccer than the U.S.

      Whilst I agree that yes we are a better collective of individuals, I still think that it will be a close game. The USA are a physical team, certainly no pushovers. I see an England win, but not by a particularly significant margin.

      Beckham is injured which effectively means that his England career is over. To be honest I wouldn't have had him as any more than a squad player anyway, I think that Aaron Lennon poses much more of a threat on that right side if we can get the ball to him in advanced positions.

    I can't wait. It's a great first match for England - tough enough to be exciting but still one that we should be able to win.
