I am so excited for this weekend.....
Any predictions on winners, players to watch, etc?
The USA/England match will be interesting.
The media in the States is trying to rile up people by showing the Liverpool fans who burned the US flag.
Frankly, from what I can tell, American ownership has been a bad thing in the Premiership. (Man U, Liverpool) I dont agree with the flag burning at all, but I dont think Americans care all that much in our wonderfully neutered politically correct country. The USA Mens' team has never stirred much imagination here, since they are a two-bit player on the world stage. Even being born and raised here, I never have been a huge fan - they didnt even make the World Cup until I was 18 years old (after a 36 year absence) .....pathetic.
I watched them get crushed by the Czechs two weeks ago, I expect England to do the same.
I am a die-hard Germany supporter, but the team is so decimated with injuries that I dont expect much. It is a real shame that so many elite players are either out of the tournament or are playing at less than 100% due to injury. I hope they look at that in the future to limit some of the stupid exhibitions and "warm-ups".
