Even without some of its star starters, England came, saw and conquered this weekend at Soldier Field. Although it was ostensibly a home loss for the USA, local soccer site The Fire Alarm notes not too many of the roughly 50,000 spectators seemed disappointed. (Sure enough, the prevalence of St. George's Cross in fan photos on Flickr [1|2|3] provides plenty of testament to that!)
