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.
