Considering theres one for Germany, I figured I'd create one for the country a sizable portion of BCers call home.


Mark your calendars. June 12th is the day England is embarrassed. Lets see how the soccer hooligans react to that :-p

Wow, I've done it twice in the space of a week! My eyes must be failing me... Sorry guys, didnt realize bujhee kom created one months ago...

June 8, 2010, 12:03 PM
it's ok. BK bhai created one for both usa+mexico!

Go USA go...

I have a huge soccer complex from walking distance from my home. there must be 30 fields with flood lights and boys and girls playing starting from age 10. but failed to see a single poster on WC :(

Anyway I still support USA until they face Brazil.

Cannot have a joint USA + Mexico thread.

This is the real USofA supporters thread.

I'm surprised by all the attention this World Cup is getting here, at least in Boston. Practically every commercial on TV involves soccer... Soccer jerseys everywhere I look on the street... I've never seen anything like it. Definitely a big step up from the '06 WC.

Who knows? Maybe we'll see soccer compete with the big three american sports 10 years from now...

They'll have to put up a better show than the two tied games today though. Americans HATE tied games...

Signed with pride! GO USA!

Donovan will score the winner

June 12, 2010, 03:36 PM
Ah crud, no Donnovan magic tonight. But he had created some great crosses which Altidore failed to convert. We got next two games to fine tune the passings.

June 12, 2010, 08:40 PM
Jozy should have gone for the Far Post instead of blasting it.

Next Game no need to play Findley, Play Jozy and Deuce up front & play Torres in the Midfield

I'm happy with the result..England looked the better team but we played a good game today and even had a chance to win..the english experts were saying how we could not defend against rooney..he didn't seem like anything special..so credit to our defense..now we can't sto here..we have to move on and beat slovenia and algeria now..

June 13, 2010, 03:36 PM
They've got to win this group somehow. Otherwise, they'll have to face Germany, and they looked pretty amazing today.

Still, was kind of fun watching Australia on the other side of a blowout. :-p

If only we could see that more often in cricket...

doesn't seem to hard to win the group now that we did our job and tied England..we have 2 make sure we beat Slovenia AND Algeria or else we dont have a chance..honestly speaking Slovenia and Algeria didn't look to be very threatening but then again as we all know anything can happen in tournaments..1 bad game and that's it..but I'm confident that we'll come up as winners in both the games and we have 2 hope that England doesn't kill either of those teams..

June 13, 2010, 05:33 PM
Algeria should be more of a threat than Slovenia. As an England supporter, I'd be happy to get a 1-0 win against them, however, they did beat Egypt to world cup qualification, so no slouches!

it will be important for USA to start at high tempo......

algeria are good at pressing and closing down and they do it very high up the pitch......

USA need to get an early goal

It was unbelievable game! At the brink of exiting the wc; we pulled through. At 90th minute I gave up and was getting ready for the inevitable result.

This is probably one of the best wc games I have ever seen. You can't make it up. Beats any hollywwod script that one could come up with.

Former President William Jefferson Clinton was on hand to witness the USA beat Algeria 1-0 today, but that's not why we know soccer has arrived in America. It's Clinton's face. Just look at it. Look at how red with stress it is. Look at his lower lip, chewed up like a bit of gristle on the end of a nice, Southern barbecued steak.

More importantly, look at Clinton's left hand. This man is stressed out about the game; he does not want to have to listen to Sepp Blatter make awkward small talk anymore. Clinton — a renowned international charmer and the husband of one of the most important diplomats in the world — is very unsubtly telling Blatter to shut his gob and just watch the game already, because DeMarcus Beasley has come on and Clinton needs to think about whether he should go down and open a can of Arkansas whupass on Bob Bradley's face.

By Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports
7 hours, 10 minutes ago

PRETORIA, South Africa – By the time Landon Donovan had commenced his celebratory slide into forever, the United States’ game-winning, group-clinching, World Cup-advancing 1-0 miracle goal safely in the back of the net, the first American fan had jumped the walls of the old stadium here.

Another fence and a row of security was all that could keep the swelling ranks of jubilant American fans from joining Donovan in a glorious pig pile. They had charged toward the field because they couldn’t contain themselves. The emotional reaction of wanting to hug a player had, in this magical moment, made sense.

The game had gone to extra minutes. The English were about to win half a nation away. The American dream of World Cup glory was about to be lost in the chilling air.

Then the U.S. broke free on a 5-on-2 break against the Algerians, the kind of numbers advantage that allowed Donovan to pounce on a rebound and slip the game-winner home.

It was pandemonium, real and raw and wickedly satisfying. It was as wild as any American sporting moment you’ll ever see. The USA had an earlier score disallowed by a phantom offside and now this was about to be remembered as the World Cup of referee errors. It was about to be remembered for bitter disappointment and blown chances.

Only no one had given up. Not on the American side, where missed chance after missed chance appeared to only strengthen their resolve that something, anything, would happen. Not on the USA bench, where coach Bob Bradley made offensive-minded substitutions, acknowledging a tie was as good as a loss and if nothing else, the Yanks were going to go down swinging.

“In soccer, sometimes you can’t always control a ball or a bounce,” Bradley said. “You can give everything in a game. I think that has become the special quality of this team.”

Not in Donovan, the team’s undeniable star who had suffered through a frustrating second half, playing a part in an epic blown chance when he may have interfered with Jozy Altidore in front of an empty net. The thoughts of another early World Cup exit was looming in his head, the memories of what he calls the nightmare of the 2006 defeat hanging everywhere. This was his team, and he wasn’t going to let it lose.

“I’ve been through a lot,” Donovan said through tears. “It makes me believe in good. And when you try to do things the right way it’s good to see it work.”

And certainly not in those stands, where the American fans, half a world from home, continued to stand and chant and wave their flags in hope that the dream would be answered.

And when it was answered, when the improbable had been produced, they started charging. These aren’t college kids. These are grown ups. They are mostly well-heeled who can take time away from work on an expensive vacation. Yet the moment was so magnificent, the goal so perfect, that broke all security measures anyway.

After the game, they had mashed up against the fence in numerous places, screaming onto the field at the American players who were hugging and kissing and dancing. The players ran over to party with their people – Altidore even doing a mini-mosh pit leap into the adoring masses.

“USA, USA” went the chants, audible even over the din of the vuvuzelas. All was right here in the South African night.

Now suddenly the United States had won its group, advancing to play Saturday in Rustenburg. The opponent will be determined later Wednesday, maybe Ghana, maybe Germany.

Maybe is all anyone here wanted; from the stands to the sidelines. The Americans can play they’ve kept saying. The Americans are dangerous, they’ve kept preaching.

Give these guys a chance and they’ll take everything.

So long after the team had headed to the locker room, as the rest of the place had cleared out, the American fans stayed and screamed. The bandwagon is moving fast for American soccer now, and why not? What’s not to love about a team that never quits, that shakes off adversity, that forces break rooms and chat sessions to overflow across the States. This is America’s team now.

Here in the grandstands it always has been. These are the die-hards, the ones who have always believed and continued to when the moments got short and the possibilities bleak.

“As we were coming to the stadium, the street was lined with U.S. supporters, waving flags, dressed up, chanting USA, knocking on the bus,” Bradley said. “We don’t always have that. To have that happen in a World Cup, in South Africa, that was a really special feeling.”

And so the fans that delivered it stayed and sang. And so they danced. The party will go on. Saturday is next. And then who knows. Maybe more. Maybe much more.

Here come the Yanks. Here come the cardiac kids. Here comes the red, white and blue.

this match was a no win situation for me...didn't want USA to lose especially after the fighting spirit and never say "matte" attitude they displayed in all four matches. Also didn't want the last African country to get ousted which would diminish considerably the luster of the tournament. In the end the better team triumphed, and still I'm proud of the way the Yanks fought all the way till the end.
