    So is the problem too many egos on England? Do they not get along?

    This is partially true I think. Several bad attitudes mixed together put under intense pressure from their nations press and public. They should get it together soon but it might be too late.

    At least English fans get to come watch their team, North Koreans aren't allowed to come to the World Cup bc of that crazy dictator ;)

    North Korea already won the World Cup thanks largely to Kim Jong-Il scoring a record-breaking 35 goals in seven games, including ten in the final. All praise to the glorious leader!

    Embattled ref to miss upcoming matches


    PRETORIA, South Africa – Controversial referee Koman Coulibaly was left off FIFA’s list for the next batch of World Cup matches following the error that likely cost the United States a victory against Slovenia.



    Yahoo! Sports revealed on Friday that Coulibaly was “highly unlikely” to take any further part in the tournament after being given a poor evaluation by assessors following his decision to disallow Maurice Edu’s 85th-minute goal. FIFA confirmed Sunday that Coulibaly will not play any part in Tuesday or Wednesday’s matches, which will include the USA’s critical Group C finale against Algeria.

    As it stands, England will top the group and Slovenia will come second. ​

    US had a lot of chances in the first half, and clearly (to me) appear to be dictating play. It's disappointing that they aren't leading right now (phony off-sides call notwithstanding). If they can keep up this same level of aggressiveness without falling asleep on the other side of the field, they should be able to pull this one out.

    Wow...... with all the flopping in this game, Dempsey actually gets clocked and nothing is called.
