Yeah its odd. salt lake city looked like the only pro US crowd outside of Columbus. Too bad both cities dont compete with a Mexico City or other large venues across the globe.

about the funniest thing I think I saw looking back on the past year was the game with Chelsea and DC United in DC. I never would of imagined it would of been that pro Chelsea. It was a see of blue. Poor Freddy Adu finally got out there and tried too hard to show Jose he could play and looked every bit of 15 or 16 whatever he was at the time.

why you would want a tough draw for england?
I'd love to see the US and England in a group together. I think would be a good game or a murdering depending if the US was in Awe mode at the time.

theres so many good teams this time around. I'm just hoping the US gets a chance to spank mexico 1 more time in world cup match.
(No offense to Mexico its just fun to beat your rival)
Ericksson said the 3 countries he doesn`t want to face are the US, Australia and of course Holland.

Ideally he`d like Angola, Switzerland...

Go ENGLAND!!!

You can all listen here if you want to hear people who know what they`re talking about (i.e. don`t listen to the US site previously posted, hahaha!)

Because there`s an intense rivalry - Australia always wants to kick England`s butt - apparently this rivalry became evident when Ericksson witnessed the cricketing matches between the two.

Ericksson organized a friendly between Australia and England and Australia won

He also said the reason he doesn`t want to play the US or Australia is because English-speaking countries have this thing about having to beat England, not because the US is necessarily better than the likes of Portugal for instance.

they won cause he changed the entire team at half-time rivalry or not we'd beat them in a world cup

I fear it would be even more of a problem with soccer/footie!
