Here? Just a friendly
In Italy? A fiasco

Image

Here in the US we're fed a steady diet of "don't get too worked up about friendly wins." And it's sound advice that goes all the way back to the 3-6-1 thrashing of Austria in the lead-up to the 1998 World Cup.

In Italy, though, they are a bit more... passionate. Or uncompromising. Or irrational.

However you want to put it, the Italian press is, in the wake of the US' 1-0 win over the Azzuri on Wednesday, showing the fight and engagement that both the players and fans in Genoa clearly lacked (the crowd, I think we can all agree, was terrible).

La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian soccer bible, called the US win "A fiasco." And it gets more colorful from there.

London Dreams
Porter calls in 13 MLSers for Olympic qualifying tournament

Image

US Olympic team head coach Caleb Porter called 13 MLS players into camp on Monday ahead of this month's CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying tournament. The US will attempt to seal their place in the 16-team field for London 2012.

The initial roster released by US Soccer includes only 19 players, as one candidate withdrew from consideration due to injury. Porter will add a 20th player to the group prior to March 20, the due date for all participating teams to submit their rosters to CONCACAF, after obtaining a release from his respective club.

The squad will gather on March 13 to begin preparations for the qualifying tournament. The US will begin their journey to London at LP Field in Nashville, Tenn., where they will compete for a place in the semifinals against Group A opponents Canada, Cuba and El Salvador beginning on March 22.

US Olympic team wins big in scrimmage vs. Atlanta
Image

The US' road to the 2012 Olympics marches on, as the Under-23 men's national team cruised to a 3-0 victory over the NASL Atlanta Silverbacks in a Sunday night scrimmage in Nashville, Tenn. The match was closed to the public.

FC Dallas winger Brek Shea notched a brace in the first half – the first an 18-yard blast across the box – while LA Galaxy midfielder Michael Stephens added a third in the second frame.

All 18 players on the squad got playing time as US U-23 head coach Caleb Porter made seven changes at halftime.

"We accomplished a lot tonight," Porter told ussoccer.com after the match. "We had a chance to apply a lot of the things we have been working on in training and saw some details that we can clean up. Everybody got minutes, and we were able to get some extra fitness for guys who needed it. We came out healthy and with the result, so overall we are very pleased."

Olympic Qualifying:
USA, Mexico favored for London berths

Image

The Stakes
The two finalists of this tournament will receive the two allotted CONCACAF berths at the 2012 Olympics. The winner of the final will also win the U-23 CONCACAF Championship.

The Players
Each qualifying nation sends a U-23 team to the CONCACAF tournament. Per FIFA rules, players must be born on or after Jan. 1, 1989.

The same rules apply for the actual Olympic Games; however, each team may include three players over the FIFA-mandated age-limit when the London games roll around.

The Teams
The United States, Mexico and Canada all qualified automatically to the final CONCACAF round. The other five nations — Honduras, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, El Salvador and Cuba — qualified for the tournament through a group-play elimination process that began in August 2011.

The Favorites
As is usually the case, the USA and Mexico are favorites to qualify. The US roster chosen by coach Caleb Porter boasts 14 players from MLS, including Philadelphia’s Freddy Adu, Dallas’ Brek Shea and Sporting KC’s Teal Bunbury.

There are also six players from abroad, including Gent’s Mikkel Diskerud and Tijuana’s Joe Corona. Having decided to play the same attacking 4-3-3 formation used by Jurgen Klinsmann at the senior level, the U-23s come into the tourney on a high note, after beating the NASL's Atlanta Silverbacks in a scrimmage on Sunday and topping Mexico, 2-0, in a friendly in Dallas late last month.
