A stern reminder about an upcoming U.S. Soccer-related event, whether you plan to check it out live and in person, on the “telly” or that wacky world wide web.
MNT World Cup Qualifying – Nov. 17 - Vs. Jamaica
[LIVE @ 7:30 p.m. on ESPN2 & ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker]
Okay, so the 6-0 pummeling of Panama in D.C. was about as convincing as it gets. I’ll stop all the talk about us not winning impressively enough in qualifying. The fact is that we qualified rather easily, compared to the dogfights that will go on come Nov. 17 for the last three spots in the CONCACAF Hexagonal.
Now that we’re through to the next round, why should you tune it to watch the final game? A couple of reasons, actually. For one, to see who Bruce picks to take the field now that he has what amounts to a free game to give young players experience, experiment with players in different positions or maybe start a top-shelf lineup but try out a new formation.
Another reason would be to watch the MNT knock out Jamaica and extend their record unbeaten streak in 2004 to 13 games.
Catch the final MNT game of the year live on the tube on ESPN2 or on the web at ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker, presented by Philips Electronics. The match will also be shown via tape delay on Telemundo at 11:30 p.m. ET / PT.
