U.S. to Face U.K. in World Cup

Revolutionary War, round two? It was announced Friday that the U.S.’s first game of the 2010 World Cup will be against England, followed by matches against Slovenia and Algeria. In the last U.K.-U.S. World Cup game, the 1950 American team managed an unexpected 1-0 win. The World Cup begins June 11, and the U.S. team’s first game takes place June 12. Overall, the United States’ first-round group appears relatively easy, giving the team a good chance to advance.
