Does the United States have a national team or have you bought into the British media mindset that the US is an amateur side?

Well, being that I've lived in the US my entire life and being that England couldn't even qualify for their own continental championship, I would say no, I've not bought into that mindset and yes, the US does have a national team and quite a good one in fact.

The 3-0 win in Poland was very impressive while England's performance in France was dismal, to say the least.

You're right though, I forgot to mention the US in my list.

Problem corrected.
