WORLD CUP SOCCER: United States vs. Algeria on Wednesday at 10:00 am

The United States soccer team has a date with Algeria on June 23 with a chance to move on in the World Cup competition.

The Match will be held at Loftus Versfeld Stadium which is located in Pretoria, South Africa. It holds 50,000 fans, was built in 1906, was renovated in 2008 and is one of the country’s oldest stadiums.

The United States has played well so far, but can’t afford a letdown or they’ll be coming home again from another World Cup looking foolish.

It seems like in the competition this year the U.S. has had the propensity to fall behind early. But they have been able to comeback to claim a tie in both their games against England and Slovenia.

Robbie Findley’s second yellow card in two games means that he’ll be out for the Algeria game. Head coach Bob Bradley will have to choose between Herculez Gomez or Edson Buddle.

Group C consists of the U.S., England, Slovenia and Algeria. With Group C being one of the tighest and most keenly fought of the World Cup, a win guarantees the Americans a spot in the last 16, a tie could still get them in.

But it would depend on England falling to Slovenia.

If everybody looks on paper, England should beat Slovenia and the U.S. should beat Algeria. Rumor has it that the English team is in turmoil, with former captain John Terry having failed in an attempt to undermine and get rid of coach Fabio Capello.

Let’s take a look at ALGERIA.
The head coach is 63-year-old Rabah Saadane, an Algerian who is in his fifth stint leading the national team.

Their strength is a core of young midfielders led by playmaking captain Yazid Mansouri. The backline includes Madjid Bougherra, Nadir Belhadj and Antar Yahia.

The weakness of the Desert Foxes is scoring. They tallied 17 goals in 12 games during qualifying games.

In World Cup competition, Algeria has never made it out of group play. In its 1982 debut, Algeria failed to advance despite opening wins against Chile and Spain and a loss to Austria.

They are in the World Cup for the first time in 24 years. It is the weakest entry in Group C. Algeria gained its berth in a 1-0 playoff win against rival Egypt. The game was played on neutral turf (Sudan) after the group final in Cairo was marred when Egyptian fans attacked Algeria’s team bus, injuring three players.
