U.S. Versus England – World Cup Tie 1/1
June 12, 2010
South Africa (ChattahBox) – The U.S. versus England game has just ended, with a draw 1/1, in an exciting, if slightly disappointing, match.
The game was a fairly dirty one, with the Brazilian referee giving out a total of six yellow cards through the game.
But both sides played well, with a great defense from the United States, and a fantastic forward play by England.
Tim Howard let in the first goal by Steven Gerrard, which was a heavy blow a few minutes into the first half, giving England the first point.
But the U.S. rallied in the second half, taking a goal just before the half point by Clint Dempsey, with a painful miss by goalie Robert Green.
In the end, we took a final score of 1/1, a draw that was predicted by many.
The U.S. goes on to play Slovenia on the 18th, and Algeria on the 23rd.
England will play Algeria on the 19th, and Slovenia on the 23rd.
