USA vs. Czech Republic

At noon EST the United States Men's National Soccer team takes on the Czech Republic in the first round of the 2006 Fifa World cup. I'm unfortunately going to have to view the first half via match tracker on the Internet but hope to get out for the second half.

The United States is in Group E, the "group of death", with Italy, Ghana and the Czech Republic. Many are predicting the United States won't get past Italy or the Czech Republic and will be sent home early. Of course, that makes the match taking place in about fifteen minutes pretty damn important. Well every match is important, but all eyes will be on this one.

Personally, I think we have a chance of surviving the "group of death" but only through mistake free play. At this level of competition a single mistake can break the game.

Update

Wow, that was depressing... Out-played, out-coached, out-scored and looking like out-of-the-whole-damn-thing.
