As reported back in February, EPL Talk can now confirm that England will be playing the United States in a friendly on May 28th at Wembley Stadium.
The match will be an excellent opportunity to extinguish or fan the flames regarding the animosity that many Americans have against English soccer and vice-versa. Across the Internet via message boards, blogs, comments from readers and in articles written by journalists on both sides of the Atlantic, there has been a lot of bad blood spilled between Americans and Brits in the past 12 months.
Hopefully the friendly match will give both sides of the Atlantic a better appreciation for the style and quality of play from both England and the United States. We’ll have to wait until May 28th to see.
