  • 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?

    There will be about 10 matches played between the end of qualifing and the beginning of the WC….this is a good one and I hope the others are of similar quality.
