The USA, REAL football and the World Cup

As you know I'm a big fan of America - not necessarily the politics - but America and Americans are just cool. Anyway - the Budweiser adverts for the world cup are great, very apt.

FIFA have ranked the USA at 5th in the world - this looks very dodgy, for a nation where they call it soccer and half of them haven't heard of it, 5th is pretty high - very, very high. The first half of their first match is over and they're already two goals down against the Czech Republic - that doesn't bode well for a team that is ranked 5th in the world. I'll give them their dues, they've qualified for every world cup since 94 and they've come out of nowhere to being pretty good. But there's no way that they're 5th in the world, supposedly better than Italy, Germany, France, Argentina and even England.

Although, I'm a big Anglo-American, I've got to support the Czech's - we'll see what the second half brings...


  • 3 nil. Well, it looks like the USA is going home, especially with Italy in their group. It might be a good match against Ghana though.
