Brothers of the Beard...

Governor of New Jersey John Corzine (far left) and Chuck Blazer (far right), bearded brothers, talk about the World Cup and the enthusiasm that Government officials have in supporting a potential bid for 2018. A brand new marquee stadium is now under construction adjacent to Giants Stadium that would be a jewel in any bid as the classic football stadium. U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati (left) and New York Soccer President Sal Rapaglia (right) looked on as the bearded enthusiasts talked in glowing terms about the new environment for Soccer in America. Both U.S. Senators, Frank Lautenberg and Robert Menendez were also prominent in their attendance at the sold out USA v Argentina match played tonight.

The match was the highlight of the night. The USA earned their point with good, positive attractive football and 0-0 draw against Number One ranked Argentina. It was a full house at Giants stadium of 78,862 in a great bipartisan atmosphere and matched by exciting play for 90 minutes on the turf. This was a good night for U.S. Soccer and a good night towards 2018. No one can deny the enormous potential of the USA as a great host.
