America collapse at the world cup.

Now I'm not big into football, but America collapsed like the English cricket team today under pressure from Czechoslovakia. 2-0 in the first half, ending the game at 3-0. That's a pretty poor start, but then again, Americans don't really play football so it's not that unexpected. Budweiser might be reconsidering their sponsorship - just because an American company throws millions at sponsoring a sports event doesn't mean the team will do any better.
The match I'm interested in is Holland's next one - versus Argentina. That has the potential to be epic.

Hollands next match is actually against Ivory Coast. But cool anyway that you still keep this warm feeling for Holland :-)

Chris - you know FIFA rank the USA as the #5 team in the whole world?

England are #10 and the Netherlands are #3.

Clearly #5 is waaay wrong, but what about #3 and #10?

I thought it was #4 which is an even bigger mystery. It doesn't matter. The US team isn't going to get anywhere until the US public understand what football is :-)
