Tonight, the United States takes on Canada in an international friendly played in Carson, California. It's the second of two friendlies played by the Americans--they took on, and beat, Iceland just days ago--in their January camp. With this match they'll conclude a 26-day convocation of sorts, that brought together some of the best players the United States has to offer.
First and foremost: what time does the game start?
This is actually trickier than it sounds. According to Fox Sports the game will begin at 10:30 PM ET. However, Steven Goff of the Washington Post says that the game will actually begin some 15 minutes later at 10:45 PM ET.
In soccer, and basically all sports shown on TV, you can always count on a good few minutes of buildup after the scheduled air time. You know, the team walk out, the national anthem, and a few minutes to allow patrons to grab a beer and settle into their seats. So, expect kickoff to be closer to 10:45, maybe 10:40 to pin point it, but tune in at 10:30 just to be safe.
What to watch for?
New, young, exciting talent. USMNT (United States Men's National Team) coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, has invited several senior prospects who could be the next generation of U.S. Soccer--like Darlington Nagbe, Jordan Moris, Jermoe Kiesewetter or Lee Nguyen--plus a handful of U-23 players who could get some time as they look to prepare for their home and away playoff with Colombia in March to decide who goes to the Olympics.
You also have the usual culprits--guys like Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Mix Diskerud--who are sure to get plenty of minutes as the team looks to build its team chemistry for upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
How to watch it?
The game will be streamed on Fox Sports 1, UniMas and Univision Deportes. If you don't have any of those channels, don't worry, you can stream the game on line at Fox Sports Go (as long as you have a subscription). Other than that, there's a few less reputable links you could surely access if you look hard enough. Search "US-Canada soccer live streaming" at your own risk.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved.
