Pre-Match: The United States men’s national team ends their summer with a friendly against some country named France. This unknown team was lucky enough to be scheduled with the US of A for what will surely be their most important match of the year.
The USMNT is coming off of two up-and-down friendlies that saw them win against Bolivia and drop a tough one to Ireland. They’ll be looking to finish up with a win over this mystery opponent that we know very little about.
Not much else can be said in the build-up for this one as we just have very little info on France and their anonymous players. We can only watch and find out who they are together. Let’s do it.
Note: We’re trying something new with our match threads. We’ll be updating the post with updates of goals and big moments as they happen. Check back every so often during the match for highlights and commentary.
