The official Copa America thread
First game is tonight against Argentina.
June 28 USA vs. Argentina 8:45: p.m. ET
July 2 USA vs. Paraguay 6:30 p.m. ET
July 5 USA vs. Colombia 6:30 p.m. ET
All games are on GolTV and Telefutura.
Not exactly household names. Should be interesting to watch the young guys play but I'm not expecting much.

Haha, a loaded Argentina roster against a USA team that doesn't even have all of its players who are in their offseason . Why are we even there? Maybe Mexico can pull it off and then we can say "we beat them and they beat you!"

I hope the Argies DESTROY the USA team. Teach them to field a sub-par team!

I think Argentina should at least win by 3 goals.

We already know what the vets have to offer, so sink or swim time for the young Nats.
Good luck boys, I'll be rooting for you.

1-1-1 get 3 games in for young guns and get home. Great opportunity for Bob to elavuate talent for 2010 and great for the kids to earn a spot in the MNT talen pool.
I really hope Califf has a good showing, he such a good guy.

It's fitting that Crespo and Johnson have the goals. They're both all over the place, the latter by relative terms.

Decent play from the US. Better than I expected.
