The first World Cup post

Well now, we won’t be discounting the US just yet. My first World Cup post (and sorry, it probably won’t be the last, even though I’ve never been a diehard footie fan). The US deserved this. They didn’t deserve an outright win but they certainly deserved to grab a point out of a somewhat hostile match with Italy. There were some rum decisions for sure which went against the US. But to keep the scoreline one-all, when you’re two men down? Well, that takes a whole lot of determination.

Fun fun fun!

BBC sport: Italy 1-1 USA.
