USMNT to host China: 6/2/2007 is reporting that the USMNT will host China in San Jose on June 2nd, which is a FIFA match date, in its final tune up for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

According to the USSF website, tickets go on sale March 2nd.

I am not really to sure about this match up. China isn't exactly a power in Asia and I don't see them doing anything but give our guys 90 minutes to run at. I hate to say it, but this is a real dog of a match that the USSF has scheduled. Guatemala has something to offer the US team, as did Mexico and as Ecuador does. All of those squads play the same type of style as the Gold Cup and Copa America teams do. These opponents will give the USMNT a taste of what to expect in June and July.

China doesn't really do this for them. Honestly, this is the type of match that they should have tried scheduling for August or September. June 2nd should have been Chile or Portugal or Bolivia. Sorry, China just doesn't do it for me.

I found a silver lining for you. It's not much, but think location.
