Canada vs England.

A moment when the elder, a champion, faces the student, Not just any student, but family. There are great expectations from Canadian soccer fans this Saturday. A time many of us have been waiting for. This is going to be THE match of the tournament.

I'm afraid to make a prediction. I really want Canada to stand up, and be counted on in this match unlike any game they have played in recent years.

We are the underdogs..........I hope we play as well as we have been. If we do I think we'll win 2-0.

I had more interest in yesterday's German vs. France tussle, but I'll go with England today. If only because I think the U.S. will have a more difficult time with Canada than England.

The big screen is lit up in my basement, and the sound is cranked way up. There is a lot of energy in my house right now. Both kids are watching it as well.

Sorry Charlie. 2-1. Congratulations England.

Thank you Strider.

Well minutes 3 through 5 at the beginning cost us the match. There was from what I could tell 7 serious errors, 2 of which cost us the match. Congrats England, until next time...The wife even opened a bottle of red wine for her and I as we watched this evening...It really sucks, but the good news is that Canadian soccer fans have really stepped up with a wonderful crowd of 55,000 people.

I'm cheering on England now in the tournament, so I hope my brothers and sisters in motherland stand up and be counted!

Nice one England ladies, have to say though I've not seen so much hoofing since I last saw the local non league amateurs having their sunday kickabout on my way up to the village paper shop.

Alas, England couldn't get it done. Japan moves on to face the U.S. in the Cup Final.

I don't understand the refereeing in soccer...and that goes for both the men and women World Cups. Strange mindboggling calls and the yellow card/red card system makes little sense.

Anyway, I'm rooting for Germany Saturday and U.S. on Sunday.

4- 0 the USA leads already!!!!! Only first half and 16 minutes left. Ugly. Last goal a long shot from mid field. Caught the Japanese goalie napping. And almost 5-0 as I type. I bet $30 to make $18. I wish I had bet the farm

Abby Wambach from my hometown of Rochester, NY helps lift the trophy, as the US Women win the World Cup. I have bought many a twelve pack from her father in the past at their store outside of Rochester, Wambach Farms which is a farm market and it sells beer and all kinds of useful needs. Great place and great player is Abby. And a voice for the gay community as well. She has been a very great player for the US.

Very proud of the U.S. women coming through for the Red, White & Blue!

I had no idea it had been 16 years since the last WC win for the U.S. That's a longer drought than I figured for such a strong program.
