England Flag                 VS           stars and stripes

England face st. George flag

With mounting excitement I tuned in to watch the England vs USA World Cup first round match.  I nearly touched the 10ft ceiling when England scored in the first 4 minutes of the game.  Sadly this euphoria was short lived, watching the England goalie fumble a ball to roll in for the USA equalizer.  Aghhhh.....how bloody awful "Green" must have felt. 

Watching from the sidelines is David Beckham,  I really miss him on the England squad.

I really must say I was almost dreading this match, first and foremost I will always be an England fan, but coming in a close second is the USA.  So to have my loyalties split watching my 2 favorite teams was hard.  Well done USA you fought a great match and what ever the outcome I want them to now win every game, as long as they are not playing against England. 

I hope there are some supporters out there for the USA team on Active Rain, I don't expect there to be many England fans. It seems such a shame that every other country competing in this years World Cup has the support of their entire nation behind them.  I actually don't think I know a single person here in Atlanta who even cares about the competition in South Africa, let alone anyone who was watching today's match.  Over the years I have managed to convert my husband, (who is American), into a football fan, yes that's right I said Football, not soccer!! He actually listened to it on the radio while he was working, I am proud of him.

So now we have to wait a whole week for England to play Algeria and USA to play Slovenia.  I wish both teams the absolute best and can't wait til next Friday.

So get noisy and cheer on your favorite team, whoever they are.

Yes it was excellent, both teams were wonderful, they need to ramp it up a bit though for their next matches.
