Thank you Sasha Vujacic for knocking down those clutch FTs last night. This morning though he is on the other team - as his Slovenia is taking on the Red, White and Blue in Johannesburg. Slovenia is at the top of our group after getting a late goal (a gift really) against an undermanned Algeria team playing with 10 dudes. Speaking of gifts, that's how we got a tie in our hyped match against England.
While the tie with England was kind of a bonus, since we were huge underdogs, we can really help our chances to advance if we can get out win victory against Slovenians. This is a huge game for both teams. Apparently Slovenians have already been doing some trash talking predicting victory. Tim Howard is nursing a rib injury, but he should ready to go.
The match will get started around 7 am PST/10 am EST on ESPN. Here is coverage from SBN and ESPN. Let's hope the US team led by Captain Bocanegra (a Bruin) can bring home a victory. GO USA!
