…and, in a single day, two of the teams I was pulling for are out of the running.
European readers will have to understand — for the American fan, we’re just not used to being able to root for our own country in the World Cup, and so we usually fall back on supporting the nations of our ancestry. So for me, this year, I had hopes for not only the US, but the Czechs and the English as well.
After today’s matches though (Italy 2-0 over the Czech Republic and Ghana 2-1 over the US), the only team I have left is England.
Who play Ecuador next.
