USMNTing Into the Weekend

• A friendly coming against Slovakia. You bet. Coinciding with the USMNT’s November 18th Denmark date is an uncomfirmed November 14th match against World Cup qualifier Slovakia.

It's possible...

It's possible...

The match most likely will be played at the national stadium in Bratislava. Will we perhaps see an invite for Johann Smith who is all of 5 hours down the road playing for Croatian side HNK Rijeka?

Slovakia boast a very stout defense led by Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel. In the attacking third, Slovakia is led by Stanislav Sestak–who tallied 6 goals in qualifying–and Serie A and rumored Manchester United target Marek Hamsik. The 22-year-old Napoli first teamer has 5 goals and 1 assist in the Italian campaign to date and is garnering quite a bit of press.

Another good test for the States.

• Going back in time, if you missed the US Cup clincher in Honduras, you can now watch it online…for about $5. Just go to

• And Charlie Davies is making more progress, sitting up in bed, getting out of bed, taking some steps and starting some physical therapy. Count us in the minority group of those not counting Charlie out for next year–if only to root him on further. CD9 in 2010: “Yes We Can.”
