WNT Oct 20, 2012
The U.S. WNT practiced in front of a few thousand fans today during its Public Training at Toyota Park, but there will be a lot more in the stands tomorrow night as the USA takes on Germany at 5:30 p.m. CT/6:30 ET live on FOX Soccer.
Coverage begins at 6:30 p.m. ET with host John Strong and former U.S. defender Cat Whitehill previewing the action. Calling the match will be long-time soccer announcer JP Dellacamera and former U.S. defender and 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup winner Kate Markgraf. Pre-match coverage also includes a feature on U.S. striker Sydney Leroux.
The match, while a friendly, will be the focus of the women’s soccer world as the countries ranking in the top two spots in the latest FIFA Women’s World Rankings square off in the first of two matches on the USA’s Fan Tribute Tour presented by Panasonic.
It’s been a bit rainy and chilly during the USA’s short stay in Chicago, temperatures are forecast to be in the mid-50s at game time with no rain so it could be a perfect night for an entertaining match.
