USA Ties England 1-1

On Saturday the USA tied England in their World Cup Opener 1-1.

The lone American goal was a fluke. I embed the video below in case you haven't seen it. English goalie Robert Green simply allows the ball to glance off him into the goal! If you catch ABC's footage of the game, over on the American bench they didn't even realize they had scored until they saw their players on the field celebrating.

On the one hand, we're lucky to get the one point with the tie. On the other hand, we could have won had a shot in the 63rd minute not gone off the post. Take the point, and being favored against Algeria and Slovenia, the USA has a good chance of advancing to the next round of the Finals.
