Reading Material

As you can imagine, there's been plenty of words in print over here about tonight's match, so we figured you would want some reading material with your morning coffee. Most of the talk has focused on John Terry being named captain for the match, partially because that's the only real news that has come out of the England camp. As you know, the Chelsea centerback missed the PK that would have clinched the Champions League final against Manchester United last Wednesday. Below is a sample of what they are saying on this side of the pond, starting with a cool photo gallery that documents all of the previous meetings between the United States and England. Have at it ...
