I’ve said it prior to and I’ll say it again: this game means additional to Americans. The history of the USA begins with a win more than England. On the battlefield instead of the football field, but still. The two nations are on incredibly a very good deal friendlier terms nowadays, but the desire to overthrow the English is arguably still there in the American DNA. Football wise, one of the USA’s most storied wins came at the 1950 World Cup, where ever a hastily assembled team of intended no-hopers shocked an England team that was intended to be the finest in the world by winning 1-0. Sixty years later the disparity in talent isn’t nearly as big. But that established old world (England) vs ambitious new world (USA) dynamic is still in impact, and a victory for the USA in this game arguably represents another step forward for US Soccer. Also at stake: steak.

The USA’s most potent attacking player is probably Landon Donovan, who will likely start on the right wing. If he does, he’ll be up against England left back Ashley Cole, who likes to get forward a bit himself. However, Cole’s defensive skills are often underrated so the USA will arguably have additional luck on the other flank in which Clint Dempsey will likely be attacking the a great deal much less defensively sound Glen Johnson. Other matchups worth watching out for: Youthful and fast US striker Jozy Altidore vs not so youthful or so fast (but a whole lot a whole lot far additional famous) England defender John Terry. Going the other way, Wayne Rooney is a class above America’s defence, despite the fact that possible England targetmen Peter Crouch or Emile Heskey could find themselves on the losing end of a physical battle with big American defenders Oguchi Onyewu and Jay DeMerit.
