Half an hour now, till the start of a Summer we will hopefully remember for ever.

We have the players. We have the skill. We have the belief. We have Wayne Rooney (soon).

We can do it.

England winning the world cup is something I really want to see in my lifetime - desperately in fact.

Best of luck lads.

COME ON ENGLAND!

The ESPN and ABC commentary in the USA has been appauling! They do not know anything about the game. They called Beckham, "Michael Beckham", mentioned 'bend it like beckham' at least five times during the match and mentioned "Posh Spice" as many times as well. Plus they call free kicks and corners, "Set Pieces", call penalties "PKs", call headers, "Headballs", and most annoyingly call "football": "soccer"!!!!

As quoted from 606. Is the football coverage really that bad in the states Tongue ?

For me the world cup has only been another sports segment to sit through waiting for baseball stuff to come on. I haven't actually watched any of the matches.

No need for the speech marks there Homeskillet, its called football, footie is acceptable but never Soccer Tongue

Btw, you're losing 2-0 at the moment, but dont be supprised the Czech's are a good side. I can also understand you would "feel good" if by some miracle the USA did win the WC, because just like I have no interest in Cricket I still veted a considerable interested in the closing weeks when we won the ashes.

Only time baseball entertained me was in the first naked gun movie.

I also have a theory. Americans in general like to "win things" and "be the best". So I assume so many americans distance themselves from Football because as a nation they are pretty "cack" at it and to be associated with something they are bad at as a nation is not the american way.
