Also, the shot of Americans and British troops in Afghanistan was great. Brits looked so pissed haha.
They interviewed those guys before the game, it was awesome.

They showed Beckham on the sideline wearing a 3 piece suit, he looked like the most English guy on the planet

Well, considering England is a favorite in this tournament, I'll take the tie. Though we tied Italy in 2006, and we all know how that worked out.

Spoiler: Ignorant American comment ahead.

I understand that most people watching the world cup know something about soccer (futbol, whatever you arses) but they're showing the US v England game on ABC.....dumbing down the game calling or maybe taking time to remind the viewers of the rules at certain intervals throughout the 90 minutes would be very helpful. I don't know what any of the players' positions do, besides defenders and goalies. I know that they kick the ball or hit it with their heads.....but I have no idea what offsides is, no idea why they play for so long, never stopping the clock even when people are on the ground, bleeding out of the face.

Also, they play for 90 minutes but the referees can just arbitarily add time to the clock? So, we got 7 minutes extra minutes total, but they didn't feel it was worth it to play until someone won? Also, when they say, for example, "Smith is leaving the game" or "Covington is being subbed out", it would be nice for them to say "Smith for USA" or "Smith for England" because I don't know who any of these people are or who they play for. Even in the NBA they say things like "Pierce has really pulled through for this Celtics team", and you can figure out who the hell they are talking about.

Also, they use alot of slang that only people who were raised on soccer would understand. I totally understand why they do that: I'm sure it is the same with football and basketball, I just don't notice, but still.

As an American non-soccer watcher, the game and the coverage seemed pretty inaccessible. Lots of guys running around and kicking the ball high into the air....not alot of action. It was fun to see the goalie save it, but all the stuff going on in between the goals was boring. I am not a hockey fan, but it seems the two sports are very similar. In hockey, however, the field/rink is shorter so there the game is faster paced.

Those are my two, ignorant American, cents.

I agree, soccer is quite possibly the worst sport I've seen to date
