I am hoping "on paper" doesn't tell the whole story. France, Belgium, Brazil and a few others read like a who's who in world soccer. The US....not so much.

Here is to team moxy!

USA! USA! USA!

US squad has been underperforming in their tune-ups. Inconsistent and sloppy.

Nevertheless, they still have a good shot at advancing through the group stage. Fingers are crossed!

Beyond that would be sweet but highly unlikely.

A very cringe opening ceremony. On the plus, the first game was good.

P.S. Alexi Lalas is still a twat.

Draw with Wales. Not bad, but not too good either, considering Wales is average on the World stage.

That really was a tale of two halves.

US - powerful and on the attack for much of the first half. Wales definitely looked like the stronger side in the second.

Truely a fun game to watch as the USA valiantly tried to ward off the equalizer as Wales eagerly pushed forward.

I know it's Gareth "effin'" Bale but that defender DID NOT need to tackle him in the box. Force him to control the ball and turn. THEN make your move if it is necessary! Just maintain your position goal side and force him to do something special. Arggh!

So the view from the Laz-e-Boy is this: the two teams vying for the Group's second spot (after England) wind up in a draw. Will this group come down to who loses to England by a smaller margin?

Mundial!

Bale saw the opportunity and experience won out. I have an odd feeling about the England/Wales game, and I hope I am wrong.

Brazil is the one. It sounds redundant, but it is what it is.

The England game was nerve racking. A draw was as much as we could have hoped for coming into the tournament.

US side played hard and as a unit. I always like to see that.!

Pulisic tickled the wood with a laser off his left foot. That was impressive but we need more shots on frame.

Keeper was strong and in command! I also liked the work that Tim Weah put in. That kid is a good 'un!

A win vs Iran lets us advance. A shooters chance is all you can ask for. We'll see just who we are.

Fingers crossed. With advancement at stake, Iran wants to take out The Great Satan so motivation will be high for both squads.

And I ran...I ran so far away...

I always pull for Team USA.

Having said that...

I am humbled and impressed by the courage the Iranian team has shown in support of the protests taking place in their homeland.

That was a bold step they took to show their unanimity with the women of Iran.

By refusing to acknowledge their own anthem, the team now faces threats by the Ayatollah to their safety and that of their families at home.

Shameful behavior by a shameless regime.

Behavior I might add that flies in direct contrast to the ideal that the World Cup ostensibly represents; you know...inclusion.

Win, lose, or draw, those players are all right in my book.

Can't we all get along (board)?

It's EE-Ron, not I-ran. Something I learned today from an article of Iranian media interviewing USA players.

Very testy interview. E Ron is out.

Pulisic for the win!

That certainly was a helluva goal. If he hadn't put himself in harm's way, there was no way to complete that play. Impressive and courageous.

U.S. still struggles to get shots on goal but advances to the round of 16 anyway. I'll take it!

Bring on "The Orange"!

Melbourne owes him some cash. A whole lotta people saw him and his scarf!

The next game will be at stress level 10. I think we can do it too.

His name is Mike Reeves. Gotta a lot of local press coverage for that! Even I when watching the game had to pause it to make sure I read it right!
