Match-Up: USA (Win or Draw) vs. England (Win)

World Cup Opening Round

The fourth installment of ‘America vs. England’ is set to take place at 2:30 PM this afternoon. For the last few months, England has been a solid favorite (-190) against the US (+630). England is led by their world-class midfielders, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard while the Americans will counter with their elite goalie, Tim Howard.

Historically, the US has triumphed over our English counterparts. Not only did the Americans defeat the English in their last world cup meetings (1950), but The Americans were successful against the English in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812. Let’s hope we can carry this 230 years worth of momentum over into soccer.

At the least, I think the US can tie against England. Jozy Altidore is scheduled to start for the US at forward, so this is an encouraging sign. Expect Landon Donovan to play inspiring soccer for Team USA. USA wins 1-0.

The Pick: United States Win or Draw

June Record: 5-6
