With apologies to American teams who, by winning the championship in their respective sports, claim that they are “world champs,” a true world championship is about to get underway in South Africa. That’s right, on Friday the 2010 World Cup begins with the host country taking on Mexico.
However, the first really interesting game is this Saturday at 2:30pm Eastern time. That’s when the long-awaited clash between England and the US will occur. Their group also has Algeria and Slovenia. The English and the Americans (in that order) are expected to advance from their group to the next round.
But then, as they say, that’s why they play the game.
