big disappointment. thought we would get a top 10 team. this seems very politically motivated

this will be last fixture before selecting team for brazil

none of last 5 games are against WC level/ top 30 opposition (iran in WC but not a top 30 team). these games will give very poor indication of how well individuals will perform against most WC teams

It's being billed as a 4 team tournament which means it's far more likely to be firendlies in May.

I understand evaluating form as late as possible, but if you haven't picked about 30-40 to whittle down to 23 by now then they've gotta pick up the pace.

Gazzetta dello Sport reports that a Latin American and European team will join the USA and Iran in this special friendly tournament.

Maybe Italy? Wonder who the Latin American team is???

No one will know how good USA is until they play powerhouses... Sucks were scheduling garbage teams..

Before everyone jumps down their throats lets wait until we see the other 2 teams. Could be Colombia and Russia, or something like that

pretty sure there is only one fixture date. maybe 2 games at same place same day, but US will not play multiple games... i dont think

We rarely play Asian teams, so I'm fine with this. I would rather play a South American team but I'm not going to lose any sleep over not playing Belgium for the third time in two years.

Iran will play us tough...it's always bigger than just the game.


A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
