Matchday: DCU at Harbour View
Has anyone seen five Cuban soccer players strolling around Tampa looking for a pickup game -- and, oh, maybe asylum as well? Just checking.....
Sorry for the delay today. Besides technical problems with the cranky blog machine, I've been working on NCAA basketball stuff. So it was with great pleasure that I was able to overhear a dork from the Redskins radio network ask an American University hoops player if, with St. Patrick's Day approaching, he had ever tried a Shamrock Shake. The same guy asked another player if, with their game being shown by ESPN on Friday, he was hoping noted sideline reporter Erin Andrews would be there. (See what I have to put up with away from the pitch?)
Okay, back to futbol. You should know that Mexico has finalized plans for three friendlies at U.S. sites: April 16 vs. China in Seattle, June 4 vs. Argentina in San Diego and June 8 vs. Peru in Chicago. Mexico's under-23 squad gets Olympic qualifying started tonight at Home Depot Center against Canada, preceded by Haiti and Guatemala (ESPN Deportes).
Details of the USA women's Algarve Cup championship are here.
Champions' Cup tonight, D.C. United at Harbour View. Kickoff is a little after 8 p.m. ET. Fox Soccer Channel will show it live. Radio coverage from Jamaica can be heard live online courtesy of WFED.
As for SuperLiga this summer, I hear the tentative plan is for D.C. United to host all three of its first-round games at Estadio RFK: July 12 or 13, July 15/16 and July 19/20. Still awaiting the final schedule.
This is the place for pregame, in-game and postgame Champions' Cup thoughts.
