Still In It!


Last night the U.S. team held its own against Italy in a match that ended in a 1-1 draw!

In their game, the Czechs were not very pleased when they lost 0-2 against Ghana. Veronika Diestlová, who commented on the game for the BBC, wrote "We are really not satisfied with the way our team played" and "We were surprised." Well, I guess they should've expected a little more from Ghana! I suppose the loss will also be blamed on the various Czech injuries (Jan Koller was carried out in the Czech-USA game and Milan Baroš was also out) or Ujfaluši's red card penalty.

What does all this mean? The U.S. hasn't been completely eliminated. The Czechs will have to do well against Italy if they want to continue. The U.S. will play Ghana. I guess the Czechs might have been a little more reserved and not assumed that they would breeze their way through to the next round after their initial win over the U.S. "Of course we respect Ghana, but we think the game will be no problem for us," wrote Veronika before the game started.
