Chelsea's Goat Scores For England Against The U.S.

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

Hopefully this isn't a spoiler for you, but John Terry just headed home a goal on a free kick send from David Beckham to put England up 1-0 in a friendly against the U.S. today (or this evening in England)...



You could see the relief on his face after that one and every teammate came up and gave him a hug. Good stuff and nice goal.

He blew the biggest kick he will probably ever have in his career. I'm pretty sure this goal in a meaningless friendly didn't do anything to make up for that.

Why in the name of all that's holy did they pick American's to broadcast this? I admit, that as an American myself, that maybe I don't know as much about football as the rest of the world, but 'near post'? Isn't that pretty much a hockey term?

Either way, I always prefer hearing rugby or football games to have broadcasters from the UK or Ireland. It just sounds right, somehow.

JP and Harkes were on the Wembley? Bristol?

Pretty sure it's called the near post everywhere.

santa, thats just as much a football term as ice hockey. and john harkes is one of american soccer's best captains-- led the team in the 90s.

but i agree with mike, this doesnt hide the fact that terry slipped during his biggest moment

can't wait for Euro 2008!

I guess I stand corrected. It just sounded so wrong...

England is not in Euro '08 nor does Avram Grant still have a job. Terry's goal didn't change either of that.
