- Holland, International Friendlies
What should be a good tune-up for next year’s World Cup (should the US qualify), the US national team possibly has a friendly lined up to play Holland on March 3 in Eindhoven.
The LA Times is reporting this evening that the US would be playing Holland next March while their rivals to the south would be hosting Spain. Yes, a Mexico-Spain match from Mexico City sounds pretty good to me.
Back to playing Holland though. I love the idea that the US is actually going to schedule good tune-ups for the World Cup this time around. I felt one big reason the US stunk up the place in 2006 was due to their lack of quality tune-ups for the big event in Germany. Playing countries like Latvia and Venezuela don’t get you ready for games against Ghana and Italy.
Hopefully Holland will be one of a couple good tune-ups the US has before the World Cup next summer.
What do you think of possibly playing Holland next year?
