Team USA, that is, courtesy of Ghana. This should become known as the “Ghana Curse” since it’s the second time now in recent memory that the Ghanaian team has sent us out of the World Cup. Team USA’s run this year can only be described as both frenzied and wildly manic, as illustrated by their play today. Still, not many people expected the team to get past this stage, so in that sense we can chalk this one up for another great performance overall for the USA, which consistently seems to do “pretty good” in the World Cup. Of course, “pretty good” isn’t enough, but it has still been a great experience for USA fans.

I am really looking forward to the Germany-England match tomorrow morning. Needless to say, it’s always a huge event anytime these two hated rivals play one another.  I am supporting Germany, and believe they will easily dismantle England. There is no question that Germany has great team play, great attitudes, and a powerful attack in Lukas Podolski, Miroslav Klose, and their new star Mesut Ozil. Miroslav Klose has scored more goals in the past few World Cups than England has as an entire team. What does England have? An overrated domestic striker who chokes on the international level, and a very dubious goalkeeping position.

3-1 Germany over England. I can already hear the England fans groaning in misery.

Good call on the score.  As a Germany supporter, I would have said it was a little generous to them.  I was at the game and the atmosphere was intense.  England fans outnumbered German fans about 10 to 1, but they took the loss pretty well.  I was expecting a riot, but it didn’t happen, and afterward they were all in good spirits.  I guess they’re getting used to it now.
