Getting ready for the World Football Challenge

We're getting ready for a very interesting soccer competition to be held in the USA in the next few days. This is a friendly tournament, where we will have the participation of four very popular soccer teams. The name of this competition is World Football Challenge. By the way, for the folks in USA, it is really a soccer competition, not a football competition.

The teams to participate in this competition are the following:

1. Chelsea (England)
2. AC Milan (Italy)
3. Inter Milan (Italy)
4. America (Mexico)

As you can see, 3 of these teams are definitely among the best soccer teams in the world. The only team I wouldn´t consider to be one of the best in the world is America from Mexico, which is one of the most popular soccer teams in Mexico, and has traditionally been one of the best in Mexico, but not in the last few seasons. America has had very bad performances lately in the Mexican League.

However, America is always a very popular soccer team, and it's always a very difficult rival for any other team. I think America will be up to the circumstances in this competition, let's hope they can play good games against the European teams.

As for the other 3 teams, Chelsea, AC Milan, Inter Milan, what can we say?. They are on top of the european soccer teams, and of top of the world as well.

We will be able to see some of the most known soccer players in the world. We will be able to watch players like the following:

- Frank Lampard and John Terry with Chelsea
- Ronaldinho, Pato, Gatusso, Pirlo with AC Milan
- Ibrahimovic, Julio Cesar, Zanetti with Inter Milan

They are only a few of the great players to be participating in this competition, which will begin this coming weekend.

The games are going to be played in several cities in USA. Let´s take a very quick look at the competition calendar:

If you are a soccer fan, and have the chance to attend some of these games, I would suggest you do. This is something you can't afford to miss. It could be a one time in a life opportunity to witness live these famous teams in action.
