Since it is very much like the soccer version of the Olympic games, this worldwide soccer cup happens only once each and every four years. The qualifying process for this remarkable sporting event launched back in 2007 and 32 countries have got through to the final major tournament.
Team USA has successfully qualified in the previous five World Cups and will certainly again appear in the current year’s cup. The Americans has wound up in Group C. Group C possess four very strong countries. They are: England, Algeria, United States and Slovenia. The USA team will have to contest with England as its most likely threat.
The games for USA go like so. On June the 12th they will match with England to start off. This is going to be a very tough game for USA because England possess an incredibly strong side. A few critics say that England might go ahead and win the tournament altogether.
Following up in the line up of soccer matches for the American team is Slovenia. On June the 18th 2010 the American team are going to have a game against Slovenia at Ellis Park Stadium in Johannesburg. On the very same day England is going to be matched up against Algeria in Cape Town. Lastly for Group C, United States is going to have to go up against Algeria on the June the 23rd 2010.

Although soccer in America doesn’t seem to be all that mainstream. The game of soccer has skyrocketed in popularity over the years. In the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football otherwise called CONCACAF America’s team is ranked 1st.

Teams in the 2010 FIFA World Cup are sporting fresh new outfits in South Africa. There are newly manufactured soccer jerseys for home and away soccer games. There are soccer jerseys available to the general public. Everyone will be able to support their favourite country of choice and buy these extremely high quality soccer jerseys made by well known manufacturers like Nike and Adidas.
Two cups ago in 2002, America got up to the quarterfinals. Getting up to the quarterfinals was a fantastic achievement. Hopefully the American team can go one step further and make it into the semifinals or even take out the cup itself. If you want to support your favourite nation then I suggest you wear your very own soccer jersey and watch your favourite nation play.
There is nothing stopping any team from winning. Team USA has qualified and so have thirty one other countries. Each and every nation is going to bring their best team forward and try their very best at winning this major soccer event.
