The US team slipped past the latest round of Olympic Qualifying and earned a spot playing Canada in the Semifinals this Thursday 8:00 in Nashville! The US team likely will field Freddy Adu, Jozy Altidore, and other young stars that might give us a glimpse of what we can expect at the next world cup. Should the US win this game they will advance to the summer Olympics in China.  The other two teams playing Thursday at 5:00 will be Honduras and Guatemala. Suprisingly absent from this stage is the Mexican side that failed to make it out of the last group stage. Personally I was hoping to see Mexico and the US clash in Nashville…but I’ll take any international matches I can get this close to home. If you are planning on going you can get tickets through Ticketmaster.com. A group of us will be sitting at the midstripe in section 135, Row T. Come out and support US Soccer so that we get more events like this in the future!!!
