MNT Jun 1, 2012
Waitin' for bags at YYZ
The U.S. Men's National Team is in Canada! The team arrived in Toronto after the short flight from D.C., following regeneration this morning and some general relaxation in the team hotel. It's another quick turnaround from the game against Brazil, and the team will refocus ahead of the final preparation game before the big start of World Cup Qualifying.
The USA and Canada are familiar rivals, but the past six meetings between the teams have all taken place on home turf for the MNT. This is the first time since 1997 the USA will play Canada in Canada. And it's been even longer since the teams met in Toronto. In fact, you have to go back even further, all the way to 1968, to find the last time the teams played in the capital of Ontario (the USA lost 4-2).
So a familiar rival but not quite a familiar setting for the MNT as they get ready for Sunday's game.
