US Men to play Guatemala in Dallas

Yesterday, Pizza Hut Park, home of FC Dallas, announced that 1.6 million people visited the park in 2006 for various events, thus showing that it is a popular destination. One of the many events they pointed to as a big success was the US men's match in February against Guatemala.

I guess they must have really like that game becuase they've decided to do it again.

US Soccer is expected to soon announce that the men will play Guatemala on March 28 at Pizza Hut Park. Both teams will use this match as a warm-up for the Gold Cup in June.

The game might also see FC Dallas stars Kenny Cooper and Carlos Ruiz face off against one another as Cooper is currently in his first US training camp and Ruiz is a lock for the Guatemalan squad.

This match would be the third game of the year for Bob Bradley (if he is still coach) and the US men.

Update: US Soccer has confirmed that this game will happen, however, they are hoping to play another game on March 25, making the game in Dallas their fourth of the year.

Not sure if you've seen this, but FCD recently started a weblog: FC Dallas Updates, "News, updates, thoughts, opinions, and comments direct from FC Dallas management, coaches, and players."

Yesterday's post by General Manager Michael Hitchcock on the InterLiga Tournament games was a good one. I hope they continue with interesting personal coverage like that.
