England vs Brazil and Honduras vs USA: Open Thread

england brazil England vs Brazil and Honduras vs USA: Open Thread

There are two big matches being played in the world of football today that have a lot of meaning to the readers of this blog.

The first is England against Brazil at Wembley in a friendly that will feature Ashley Cole playing his 100th game for The Three Lions. The game also marks probably the last time that England will wear an Umbro kit after a 50 year (off and on) history with the kit manufacturer.

Congratulations to Ashley Cole on such a proud honor. Hopefully the friendly will live up to its billing with Theo Walcott picked to start up front, while Jack Wilshere is going to the engine in midfield alongside Steven Gerrard.

Plus the match marks the first game of the FA’s 150th year anniversary celebrations.

The match will be shown live on FOX Soccer beginning at 2:30pm ET.

The second match of importance today is the first World Cup match of the qualifying round for the United States of America. They’ll face Honduras in San Pedro Sula. The match kicks off at 4pm ET on beIN SPORT.
