The World Cup 2010 starts tomorrow in South Africa. Support your country. I have the US Soccer logo included in this blog. USA are in Group C. They play England on Saturday, then Slovenia and Algeria in that order. I’m being realistic. I’m giving the US a 30% chance of winning against a talented and experience English team. That’s 3 of 10 games the US can pull off an upset.
Anything is possible. If we can beat Spain at last year’s Confederations Cup, we can beat England. You never know. The US will need lady luck on its side. I figure the US will finish 2nd in Group C. I hoping they could. If not, it will be a dismal failure like 2006. From there, getting to second stage, quarter finals and semi-finals will be an added bonus. They key matches for USA will be against Slovenia and Algeria. If the US win the last two games, they are in with 6 points.
By the way, the first game will be between Mexico and host-nation South Africa. I have feeling South Africa will be a hard test for Mexico, but Mexico will probably win.
