Brave US Draw Keeps Hopes Alive

25 Donovan 600x429 Brave US Draw Keeps Hopes Alive

Maybe it is the Group of Death after all? With the US’s ugly but valiant draw against Italy, all four teams in Group E now go into the final match with a chance to make it through to the next round.

The Americans finally showed the passion they were severely lacking in the Czech match. All of the players on the US squad gave 100% and thoroughly deserved the point.

Now going into the final match on Thursday, the US has to hope that Italy beats the Czechs and that the US can beat Ghana. The Africans, based on their two performances thus far, are going to be very difficult to beat.

What a day. For a few images of the pub where I watched the match today, go here. (Note: I was hoping to snap more pictures to share, but I was so caught up in the match, I didn’t get a chance. Next time…).
