Why England Won’t Win The World Cup…


OK, so the USA has just been knocked out by Ghana and while, to use that very American term, it “sucks big time,” there can’t be too many complaints. It was possibly the toughest group of them all, and the USA couldn’t rise to the occasion. Bitching about Ghana’s highly dubious penalty at the end of today’s first half makes no difference: take away that referee decision, and the USA would still have been flying home. And so, congratulations to Ghana on making it to the second round. And full marks to the USA fans for being so vociferous in defeat.

Before the game, though, I got a laugh out of an e-mail sent by a local American friend who may not know much about the game but seems to know what makes the World Cup Special. The e-mail reads:

Why England Won’t Win The World Cup…

The FIFA World Cup; makes one proud of one’s nationality it brings out the best in a nation… Don’t you think!

And is followed by the following photos:
