They’re probably still picking up ticker tape from the U.S. Women’s Soccer team’s World Cup victory parade this morning, and the country will continue to bask in the glow of victory for a while. When combining the women’s triumph with the fact that it was America’s Justice Department that is standing up to FIFA, U.S. soccer is on a roll right now. We’ll get an up-close view in Baltimore this weekend as the men’s side comes to M&T Bank Stadium.
USMNT is currently playing in the Gold Cup, which is a tournament of nations from North and Central America. The winner gets to play in another tournament you may not have heard of called the Confederations Cup. But it’s also a chance to see who is playing the best soccer in this particular part of the globe.
The Gold Cup booked Saturday night at M&T Bank Stadium for the Gold Cup quarterfinals long ago, but no one was sure if the U.S. would be playing. Last week, the U.S. qualified for the next round at the top of their group, ensuring their place in Baltimore. We don’t know the opponent yet, but does it really matter? If you want to know what it’s like when the American Outlaws come to town, this weekend is your chance.
