US is going to Copa America!

For the first time since 1995, the US will play in next year's Copa America in Venezuela.

"The tournament offers the dual advantage of quality opponents and a challenging environment that will provide long-term benefits for our team," U.S. Soccer Federation Sunil Gulati said.

This is fantastic news, but it will be interesting to see how the team handles this tournament since it will play CONCACAF's Gold Cup tournament in the weeks leading up to the Copa.

Gulati did not say if there will be two very different teams playing in the two tournaments. That's a good thing as I think the future coach should have a lot to say about that.

Hmmmm... I can't imagine that this announcement would be made without the go ahead of all prospective USMNT coaches... which means a decision at some point?

D, I must agree with you there. Something tells me a coach has been picked.
