South Carolina is a hotbed for world class soccer talent. In each of the past four World Cups, a former Gamecock player has made the United States' roster.

Clint Mathis started the tradition in 1998, just one year after his final season with the Gamecocks. He was a starting forward on the 2002 team and scored one of the more memorable goals in the nation's World Cup history against South Korea.

Josh Wolff, Mathis' teammate at South Carolina, played for the United States on the 2002 and 2006 World Cup teams. Brad Guzan has been the United States' backup goal keeper on the 2010 and 2014 World Cup teams.

Naturally, the question of "who's next?' is constantly on South Carolina coach Mark Berson's mind.

It wasn't the group of death. Two of the teams were non-issue.
Which 2 you are speaking of the fighting Rinaldos and Ghana right? Ghana is a very fast and good team. Portugal played very well you have to remember the facts when they were playing with all 11 men against Germany they were doing ok for a first World cup match of the year. All Hell broke loose when Germany had the number advantage.

If we get by Belgium we really have a great shot at winning it all. I know I will catch Hell for this but looking around at all the other teams that are supposed to be favorites. None of them are world beating and with every game that the favorites struggle underdogs like us get to see the strategies that work against them and which don't. This won't only help us in this world cup it will help us in future ones should we start a vote thread on how long it will be before we win our 1st World cup?

Also I have seen in most games this round that the team that loses came out with reckless abandon and played lights out in the beginning but didn't convert that into many goals. Then late in the game their wheels were gone and they end up losing late in ot or pks. Play hard but conserve some also this IS possible so you aren't all dead at the end.

Over/under on if Bradley shows up against Belgium because he has been in fla since the last send off a win against a Nigeria team that played really well in this tourney.

I have a good feeling about tomorrow. There are a lot of things working in our favor. Belgium hasn't been tested by a good team yet. They haven't played a game up north yet. We're getting Altidore back. We finally got some rest. We go through 1-0 I'm calling it right now. Bring on Messi............

If jozy is healthy I have a good feeling as well. Him up top and Dempsey slid back some will help Bradley. At least I hope

There is no way Jozy is healthy enough to play this entire game. Available late if it goes 120 minutes I get but there is no way he can go from the beginning and today is no time to 'test' the leg.

I would love to be wrong but a hamstring injury like the one he clearly suffered doesn't fix itself in two weeks.

I was looking at the Belgium roster last night and it is impressive. It's hard to believe that such a small country could produce such a world class team. Kompany, Lukaku, Hazard, Fellaini, Mertens, Courtois, etc. It's insane.

I do think we will have to play our best game so far today to win but I do believe we will play that best game.

I Believe That We Will Win!!!

Oh yeah...DAMN YOU WORK!!!!!!!

For as much talent on paper they have had, they do not look impressive.
Sure they won all 3 but they were not easy wins. (Algeria lead early and Belgium won it in the 80th, they beat Russia in the 88th 1-0 and beat Korea 1-0 in the 77th)


Also to help Vincent Kompany their captain is Doubtful and Thomas Vermaelen (arsenal D man and I believe Kompany's backup) is out as well.

Sadly for as huge of a nation as we are this is true. The only two that could crack that list would be Timmy and Dempsey. Anyone else starting to get the nerves set in yet??
