After surviving Saturday's match with Argentina, the US Men's National Team now turn their sights on Paraguay. Over 20,000 tickets have been sold for the first match at LP Field since the 2009 World Cup Qualifying win over T&T, but I'd be surprised if the attendance numbers will reach the nearly 28,000 that were sold for that match. You see, the weather and the Tuesday night game time won't be optimal for a large walk up crowd.
Let's not forget Paraguay no slouch of a team. The Yanks will be facing fellow 2010 World Cup group winner and top 25 ranked team. No, they may not have their star players, but they will have a few exciting young players just like the US does. This should be a really fun match especially since I'll be riding on the Rocket City United bus to and from the game.
