The 2010 World Cup begins on June 11 in Johannesburg, with host South Africa playing Mexico. The following day the US kicks off its campaign against mighty England. This is going to be an exciting tournament, and if the US plays to its capabilities it should advance out of group play.
A lot of folks are already look past this year’s Cup, though, and are lobbying to bring either the 2018 or 2022 tournament to the US. You have to like our chances. When we hosted the 1994 tournament, the US smashed all World Cup attendance records, and since then our facilities and the sophistication of our various soccer organizations have done nothing but improve.
Enjoy the Cup. Support the Yanks. Visit the Go USA Bid site and sign the petition.
