England v USA

So I am getting ready for the big match!

Last time the USA made a surprising win. 1-0 in the 1950 world cup. Stanley Matthews (think 1950s Wayne Rooney only at the time better) was left on the bench. There were no-subs then and so he watched in agony from the dugout. England didn't make it any further.

Most of my English friends are predicting an England win ... something like 3-0 or 3-1. The game should be like a combined Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal team against a bottom four team. Should be easy. Then Utd were beat by Burnley at the beginning of last season. Giants do fall. We'll see. I am always worried when England think they will walk it.

Anyway, bring it on! Nineteen-sixty-six again please.
