Political correctness. 1-1 is a score both teams are happy with. Just like the match against Korea in 2002.

Don't kid yourself. Its a good result for the USA but, as we speak, the knives are being sharpened by the English media. No-one in England will be happy with a draw against a USA team that the English consider to be quite a lot inferior to their own.

Really? On all the interviews on British tv all the English are very disappointed. They expected to kick the US's butts. All the commentators said scores would be England to US - 2-1, or 4-0, or 2-0, even 6-0. The English are not happy tonight.

I'm referring to the teams themselves, not their fans. England has played to a draw with many perceived 'mediocre' teams. The draw didn't surprise me.

Yes, it is an English speciality. But there is a difference between playing "to" a draw and playing "for" a draw.

I bet the news in North Korea is that they beat Brazil 12 - 0 and Kim Jong-il scored all the goals while playing goalie.

I am curious if anyone knows what the pctg. of teams that score first went on to win the match. My guess is that it's something approaching 75 to 80%. I saw a stat on Brazil that their all-time record when scoring first was something like 74 - 2 - 1.
