[GROUP C] Landon Donovan says it took all of about a half a second to realize the significance of the USA's placement in Group C with England and a (probable) date with Los Angeles Galaxy teammate David Beckham. A Donovan-Beckham showdown would be just one of several matches involving club teammates.

Jozy Altidore and French-born Algerian Kamel Ghilas have a lot in common. They both are strikers for Hull City and they both joined the Tigers at about the same time from the Spanish Second Division. Altidore finished last season at Xerez (on loan then as now from Villarreal) while Ghilas was playing for Celta.

U.S. defender Jonathan Spector and and England keeper Robert Green are teammates at West Ham, while U.S. backup keeper Brad Guzan and England first-choice striker Emile Heskey play for Aston Villa.

When Beckham rejoins in AC Milan in January, he'll meet first-year defender Oguchi Onyewu, recovering from a knee injury.

Also rehabbing is Charlie Davies. When he gets back to France in the winter, he'll be sure to have a chat with Sochaux teammate Bojan Jokic, a key member of the Slovenian national team.
