Hector, thank you for the kind wishes. And to all of you that joined in the sentiments. Thanksgiving is a HUGE deal for we Americans. It's a time when we gather together, break bread, and appreciate one another and the amazing blessings that have been bestowed upon ourselves and our Nation.

Millions of people across America are traveling to be with family and friends today. So you will understand if we are all a bit quiet online. But rest assured we are looking forward to tomorrow and the great opportunity to once again play England in the World Cup.

I would also like to say that I count my friends here at MOT among my blessings. I enjoy being part of this community of fellow football fanatics and Leeds United supporters. May you all enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving! It's an American tradition that can be participated in and enjoyed by all. Cheers!!! 8-)

I know it was first celebrated for the harvest by the Pilgrims and the Indians joined in,

but i prefer to think this is the time of year you celebrate us English deciding to give you Mongrels your country back but on the insistence you spoke English ;-)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, WE ACCEPT YOUR THANKS AND LET'S ALL DRINK TO THAT ! :beers:

The only other time England and the United States have met in the World Cup was in South Africa 12 years ago.

Fabio Capello was England coach back then and had overseen a stellar qualification to reach the tournament, with nine wins and a single defeat, in Ukraine. You remember, it was the campaign in which Theo Walcott scored a hat-trick in Croatia and we all got carried away. England scored 34 times, the most of any side to reach South Africa.

Capello took the oldest England World Cup squad ever to the event. Confidence was high. Much of the "Golden Generation" were still around - Rooney, Lampard, Gerrard, Terry. However, Rio Ferdinand suffered an injury ahead of the first game that ended his tournament. First up, was the Americans.

It started well. Steven Gerrard gave the Three Lions the lead in just the fourth minute. That was pretty much as good as it got. Rob Green's howler - allowing a tame, dribbling Clint Dempsey shot to find its way past him and over the line - served notice of the horror show to come.

That first game finished 1-1. England finished second behind the US in the group and that brought them face to face with Germany for one of the worst officiating decisions of all time in the midst of an absolute battering.

Green's mistake (29) and England humiliation at the hands of Germany (12) were both included in our list of great World Cup moments back in 2018...
