CHICAGO (Tuesday, May 7, 2002) — U.S. Men's National Team defender Jeff Agoos will chat live with fans on Friday (May 10) at 1 p.m. ET from Cary, N.C., where he and his World Cup teammates are currently training in preparation for the three-game “Nike Road to Korea” series, which kicks off this Sunday (May 12) with a match versus Uruguay at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. The match will be broadcast live on ABC at 2 p.m. ET.
Agoos, who has the dubious distinction of being the most capped player in the world to have never appeared in a World Cup game, is a 17-year veteran of the U.S. National Team system. The veteran defender, who just turned 34 on May 2 and is the oldest member of the 23-player U.S. World Cup roster, became the Major League Soccer’s only four-time champion when he helped lead the San Jose Earthquakes form worst to first and capture the 2002 MLS Cup.
After the Uruguay match, the U.S. World Cup Team will head up the East Coast for a May 16 match versus Jamaica at Giants Stadium (live on ESPN2 at 7:30 p.m. ET) and then on to Boston to meet the Netherlands on May 19 at the new CMGI Field (live on ABC at 2 p.m. ET) in the team’s World Cup send-off match.
