The U.S. MNT continued preparations for this weekend's contest against New Zealand, albeit with a change a venue. Heavy rains, which have bogged down the D.C. Metropolitan area for the past three weeks, rendered the U.S. training field unplayable, forcing the squad to train on an artificial surface at a local college. The team faces New Zealand this Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Richmond, Va. on the campus of the University of Richmond. The match will be broadcast live on ESPN2, Telemundo, Radio Unica as well as ussoccer.com's MatchTracker, presented by Philips.
