If You Watch One Soccer Game This Year, Watch This One

When you think United States Soccer, the average person probably can't name more than Alexi Lalas, Cobi Jones, and Freddy Adu, and might not have even known we had a team before the 1994 World Cup. Well, they did, and they pulled off one of the greatest upsets of all-time against England in the 1950 World Cup (yes, that's them above). Today, it's not quite a re-match, but the two teams are matched up against each other once again. Kick-off is set for 3ET/2CT, and can be seen on ESPN Classic.

For a better preview than I have time to give, check out Jeff Carlisle's write-up on If you want your preview with an English flavor, the London Times has an article, mainly about captian John Terry. And if you want to see Blogspot work at it's finest, my younger brother started a blog has a "preview" at The Kicks.

If you hate soccer, and don't want to watch the game, that's fine too. Just please don't try to tell me how awful of a sport it is as I'm trying to sneak to a TV and watch it at work today.
