All right, y’all. The World Cup’s been fun up to this point but NOW it gets serious. Now it’s ‘MERICA’S turn to play. USA opens up its World Cup account in Group F against Thailand in Reims. The USA has never lost its opening match in a World Cup and it would be a huge shock if they were to do so against a Thailand team that is... well, not expected to do much.

There are two other matches today as well — the early game features New Zealand vs. the Netherlands, while Chile plays Sweden in the mid-day match.
