Good for you, man - I wish more folks in this heathen nation would embrace PROPER football instead of that odd commercial-filled padball thing. How's he going to a World Cup game though? It's being held in Brazil, but not until 2014!

As to the US and England, it doesn't really matter - they're just one of 31 teams who Spain is going to snack on en route to the title.

I don't know if it's been said on here, but I read yesterday that all the ESPN games will be streamed live on espn360.

Yeah, sadly if you read my original post there is a contractual issue and the USA games will be played on ABC, then espn3 the following day. Every other game will be played live, though

Guess we were misunderstanding his itinerary, we thought it was a pregame or something to do with the World Cup taking place in Brazil. It is actually just being in Brazil sharing the excitement while the World Cup is taking place.

Here is the itinerary for his trip:
Day 1
Takeoff

Depart the United States for São Paulo, Brazil.
Day 2-4
Training Camp at Spa Sport Itu, São Paulo

Arrive in São Paulo, Brazil’s largest city and cultural center.
Enhance your game with new insights and techniques from People to People Soccer Commissioner Steve Sampson and Brazilian Olé Soccer Academy coaches.
Meet your Sports Ambassador teammates and new coach, and practice for the upcoming tournament.
Taste Brazilian-style barbecue and watch a performance of capoeira, a unique mix of martial arts and dance.
Donate equipment and school supplies that will be provided to Brazilian children living in poverty.
Feel the excitement in the air, as you follow the World Cup finals in Brazil, where soccer is king.
Watch the pros train during a visit to Ituano Futebol Club.
Visit the Museum of Futébol to understand the contributions of this soccer legend.
Practice with your new team and coach for the upcoming tournament.
Days 5-9
Copa Zico Tournament Group Phase—Ole Brazil FC, São Paulo

Train and stay at the Olé Academy used by Brazil’s top team, the Corinthians of Ronaldo. Olé has produced some of the country’s best players, including Socrates, Leao, Cicinho, Doni, Edmilson, and Bordon.
Enjoy friendly competition and cultural exchange with Brazilian athletes.
Challenge yourself to compete at a higher level, as you meet teams from all over South America.
Stay and play with international athletes at the site of the Zico Cup Tournament (Copa Zico in Portuguese).
Observe how styles of play differ from country to country and attend pro training sessions.
Share your American life and interests with your new South American friends.
Day 10-13
Copa Zico Tournament, Rio de Janeiro

Continue to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s “marvelous city.”
Go behind the scenes at Maracanã Stadium, one of the sites for the 2014 World Cup finals.
Attend a pro match.
Try a new twist on your sport—and enjoy Brazil’s beautiful beaches—while competing in the Brazilian Beach Soccer Tournament at Barra Beach.
Experience the Christ the Redeemer statue, the tallest of its kind in the world.
Visit the world-famous Copacabana Beach.
Watch the Copa Zico.
Ride a cable car to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain for an incredible view of Rio.

Days 14
Return Home

Arrive in the U.S.

Yeah they look like they have a decently mild group so they're probably get out. But then they have to play #1 or #2 of group F, which includes Italy and Paraguay... don't know too much about New Zealand or Slovakia but still...

Hopefully somebody will know the answer to this question:

If a player gets a yellow card in a friendly does it ever roll over into official matches? I ask because Clint Dempsey was being an r-tard and got himself a yellow in the friendly against Australia. Is he going to have to be extra careful against England?
