Conversely, it was bad defensive play (positioning) that allowed England to get open on its goal. No difference.

The U.S. did not play to its full potential either.

In what world is England a football superpower?

They are only good to the english speaking part of the world, who gets overpowered by their media.

English is a little bit above average, and qualified easily because of a horrible group(Kinda like USA topping the god awful Concacaf region)

Rob Green, is a MAN about his gaff. He gets props from me. I'm not a fan of soccer at all, -edit- but I do realize that it is a big thing around the world, and the man has owned up to his mistake in a big way.

Rob Green makes no excuses, reminds us that he's 30 - Dirty Tackle - World Soccer*Blog - Yahoo! Sports (http://g.sports.yahoo.com/soccer/world-cup/blog/dirty-tackle/post/Rob-Green-makes-no-excuses-reminds-us-that-he-s?urn=sow,247912 - broken link)

I have to give him props for that.

Anyone heard of paper tigers? That's the English football team

Clearly the most overrated team on the face of the earth. They make good tabloid junk items of the tabloid hungry Brit crowd. Their victory in the 1966 world cup was mere fluke. I guess luck works all the way through for some people.

And since then, how many trophies have they lifted except occupies centerfolds and front pages of magazines. They contain some big names who are so big only to collapse like a pack of cards in the crunch matches. I can bet right now that they are crashing out of the world cup in the most ridiculous way possible. LOL.

I was rooting for the USA to win all the way through. The draw was alright, but that was formidable goalkeeping by the English goalie. I can bet my grandma can send a pumpkin past his ham hands

They will improve after this game, while the US team will struggle as I don't see them scoring many goals at this level.

The arrogance of you people is amazing. For all your retarded **** taking, I'm glad that I don't live in the US!
And the reason is that your club teams are full of foreigners. Even your best coaches are not English but rather Scottish, French, Irish, Italian, etc.. I don't think an English coach has ever won the EPL and neither has a team composed entirely of English players.

England needs to improve after this game and it isn't about the goalkeeping. Your defence is so pedestrian that any side with decent pace will show them up. The Queen Mary can turn quicker than Carragher or Milner FFS Lampard and Gerrard just don't work as a midfield pairing, England demonstrated no ability to use the width of the park in order to stretch the US defence and the few times they did get wide, the crosses into the middle were shocking. Finally, you have a striker in Heskey that is incapable of scoring goals and a great player in Rooney that was increasingly forced to come back to the half way line to get the ball. What does that say about your midfield that your most able player never sees the ball.

It just trips me out how folks such as yourself who don't like soccer seek it out to slam it... For example, I don't really dig baseball, so I don't really watch it/follow it/play it but I don't actively pursue baseball fans to slam their sport or degrade them, I just take it as "hey... that's their thing, not really mine and it's all good"... That's all...
