This year’s Copa America has already been an exciting one, as they defeated Ecuador 2-1 in the quarterfinals, marking the first time the U.S. men’s team has reached a semifinal outside its region since 2009. Their last three Copa America matches have broken records for Fox Sports 1, becoming the channel’s most watched soccer matches ever, attracting more than 2 million viewers.
Despite the level of competition the USMNT is about to face, team captain Michael Bradley seems to be confident in his squad’s ability to take on Messi and the rest of the Argentina stars.
“There’s a bunch of very good players on their team. We have a few good players, as well,” Michael declared to reporters on June 20. “Sure, on paper they’re the team that everybody thinks is going to win. No problem. But ultimately when that whistle blows it’s still 90 minutes of competition.”
