US has had posession 59% of the time, I think they are doing well. they just need to drive it down the line, one goal like that is lucky and i doubt it will happen again. england will keep shutting the US down every tiem they get down there and its 2 on 7.
Oh my god! I just hit a fucking turkey, it was in my hand!

hahaha i cant believe there is already a thread about that, englands def got the bettter offense and our defense isnt doing a whole lot but i think we might win this, and rooney about raped my post with a goal by header
It might have been bs, but its not our fault that we have a way better goaltender than you do...
hell... that near miss by altidore almost went in off of Green and into the goal.. He had a bad night, but England was not dominant by any means in the game.
Howard however, was amazing, and england was stymied on most of their chances. The americans bend, but dont break... and they're great at clearing out the box... They're certainly a quality side, and I'm usually the biggest critic of the USMNT there is...
You cannot talk shit anymore, England... because the average age of our team is something ridiculous like 24.5
No other team except maybe the Spanish, Dutch or the brazillians can keep up with the speed of the american team - and yet the Dutch and the Spanish are likely to give up goals to the American style of counterattacking speed play. (as seen last year in the confederations cup, when the USA kept letting the spanish come in deep, and then kicked it out and had a 4 or 5 on 2 chance... and Puyol, as good as he is, couldnt stop speedy guys like the US players...
There were many times that Jamie Carragher was needing to pull out everything he had to keep from getting beaten... and he still got beaten. Altidore was so near to a goal... give the us 4-8 years, and the americans are going to be a top 10 team in the world...
They definitely have more depth, and more quality overall, I wont deny that... play 10 games against them, and they'd probably win 5, draw 3 times, and lose 2 times against the US.
but the USA has had a league since 1996. the English have had one since like... before 1896... They take mad pride in their football, and for us its just another sport that 'nobody watches', and yet, we are closing that talent gap faster than anyone else would.
Oh yeah I totally agree and this game is a great example of that. Did you by any chance catch Time's article on the Cup? It was really funny because it basically said "lol you guys better hope we don't start caring about this sport because once we do we are just going to beat everyone at it".
