US Women to play in Peace Cup

The US Women's team will have one last test before World Cup qualifiers begin as they will make their first ever trip to South Korea to play in the Peace Cup.

The Cup will take place from October 28-November 4 and will take place in six cities. There will be two groups of four with the top team from each group meeting in the final. The groups are:

Group A: South Korea, Brazil, Italy, Nigeria
Group B: Australia, North Korea, Denmark, USA

Five of these teams are ranked in the top 10 of the world (USA-2nd, Brazil-4th, N Korea-7th, Denmark-9th and Nigeria-10th).

The US also has matches on Aug. 27th against China in Chicago and Sept 13th against Mexico in Rochester.

This is the thrid version of the Peace Cup, but the first that will involve women. In 2003 PSV Eindhoven won and in 2005 Tottenham Hotspur came out as winners.

Don't forget the US Soccer Carnival part IV.
