USA to open play today in FIFA World Cup

Team USA opens play today in the FIFA World Cup against the Czech Republic in Germany. Both teams are in Group E along with Ghana and Italy. The top 2 teams in each group advance to the next round.

USA goalkeeper Kasey Keller is considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world but against the Czech Republic he is going to be tested early and often. Other notable names on this team include Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Claudio Reyna, and if you follow Clemson Soccer you'll recognize Defender Oguchi Onyewu.

In the last World Cup in 2002, USA finished 2-2-1 and in 98 went 0-3.

Now I don't normally follow soccer since it's just not as popular in the States as Baseball or Football but when it comes to the World Cup I do sit up and take notice. I hope we can escape the CR and beat Ghana to move on to the 2nd round. If it comes down to win or go home against Italy we maybe in trouble.

Come on Team USA, make us proud.
