England thinks they won because the ball was dropped and the U.S.A. got a point. It is a tie no matter how one looks at it (1-1). The teams seemed fairly equal in ability. We were lucky enough to get to go to a nice member's home to watch our first ever English football game (the mission president gave permission for all missionaries to watch it because nothing could get done during that time anyway). The men playing this type of football run up and down on the field without breaks, unless someone gets hurt. There are advertisements only at half time. They have to be some of the best athletes in the world with the kind of stamina it takes to play. The goal keepers are very skilled and quick.
Needless to say, having English and Americans cheering their teams on in the same room was wild and all in good fun.
