Today the 2010 world cup kicked off. As many of you are aware, the United States is participating in the World Cup and their quest for glory beings tomorrow at 2:30 pm eastern time as they face off against England. The expectations are high for the United States, as they are currently ranked 11th in the world and are looking to rebound from a very disappointing 2006 World Cup after they made the quarter finals in 2002. This World Cup is very important for the U.S. as they are looking to prove that they can finally compete with the worlds best. From a fan’s perspective, look out for the United States Captain Landon Donovan, who is making his third world cup appearance as well as Fulham’s (English Premier Team) Clint Dempsey and Villarreal’s (Spanish Primera Division) Jozy Altidore.
