They already have us as the C1 rep playing the D2 team. Germany winning against Ghana would make them D1 and "likely" play England with Ghana v US. Believe it went to a "lottery" to determine the group C seeding but hadn't heard or seen any reports of that.

Germany could still get bumped out of the next round with a loss (or tie) and a Serbia win.

USA will be playing Serbia and England against Germany. Would be some great matchups.

The "bloody English" are going to win the world cup.

Anyways I'm pretty pumped, what a way to win.
Not regarding the team. I AM American. That doesn't mean I can't get annoyed when they bash the sport or claim only American football can be rightly called football. Americans ARE allowed to criticize other Americans and the country, are they not? Freedom of speech?

In your dreams! They'll will it in 2018, when the tournament goes to England. Outside of Europe, European teams (including England) don't win.

Whatevs, you have painted Americans with a very broad brush many times on this forum, so it strikes me as disingenious to support the team. It's not a free speech thing at all.
