United States soccer is scheduled to open their 2010 World Cup campaign against England on June 12. The two countries last matched up in 1950 when America went on to notch the 1-0 win. Following the initial contest, the U.S. team will face Slovenia and Algeria on June 18th and 23rd. Fans and players alike are excited about their placement in the upcoming tournament.
“This is the best draw we’ve ever had in any World Cup,” said former U.S. forward Eric Wynalda, now an analyst for the Fox Soccer Channel. “No disrespect to England, but this is an ideal group for us.” The U.S. vs. England contest will feature Los Angeles Galaxy teammates Landon Donovan and David Beckham representing their respective countries. “This is going to be awesome,” said Donovan. “I can’t wait. It’s going to be great.” Purchase your 2010 World Cup tickets with us at AceTicket.com!
