I might join as might be an interesting expirement to see how someone who literally knows NOTHING about the sport can do.
I could not name one player on the US team. Actually are the Americans even in the tourney?
I probably cant name more than two soccer players in the world...
that beckham dude (not sure if he still plays)
and some Brazilian named Rolodingo or Ronaldo or something like that.
June 11 through July 11.
And yes, we're in the tourney. But just like any other year, we'll get through the group stage and then lose. Does Landon Donovan ring a bell? He used to play for the San Jose Earthquakes.
Oh, and for the record, Ronaldo is Portuguese. TMC's favorite neighbors
Thanks for the clarification and info Xbay.
No, never heard of Landon Donovan. Who is he?
Oh, so who is the brazilian guy I am thinking of? Well he PLAYED for Brazil, not positive he is actually Brazilian. It was like 8 years ago or something and I think he was considered one of the best in the world.
Only other soccer player I can think of is Pele... remember him as a kid.
Oh, and I read an article today in ESPN the mag on BART about some italian kid (cant remember his name) that was born and raised in New Jersey but plays for the Italian national team.
