Third ain’t that bad! The United States Men’s National soccer team will have one more Copa America game against Colombia for third place on Saturday, June 25th at 8pm EST. Watch all the action from Arizona online with us!
Copa America is far from over. USA still has a chance for a respectable finish when they tackle Colombia in a game to determine 3rd place in the tournament. Watch the live stream of all the soccer action here on June 25th, at 8pm EST!
The Americans will take on Colombia for the second Copa meeting of these two powerhouses when they square off in the tournament’s third-place battle at the University of Phoenix Stadium in sunny Arizona. These two teams will be limping into the game having both come of disappointing losses in the semifinal round. The US got schooled by Lionel Messi, 29, and his fellow Argentinian’s in a 4-0 loss while Colombia got kicked around by Chile and succumbed to them 2-0. WATCH USA VS. COLOMBIA ONLINE HERE.
The US men have been all over the place in this tournament and who knows which version of the team will show up against the Colombians. The Americans came out strong against other great opponents like Paraguay, Costa Rica and Ecuador. However, they looked dull in their two losses to Colombia and Argentina. That’s right, Colombia already beat USA 2-0, and that knowledge may give them the edge again in this match.
So this game is only for third place, what’s the big deal, right? Wrong. A third place finish would be very respectable for the US Men’s team and could bolster momentum heading into World Cup and Olympics action in the near future. The Americans have never placed in the Copa Tournament and have only placed well in other prestigious tournaments twice in 85 years. So this game is kind of a great opportunity for American soccer. A win could go a long way in building the Americans as a force in the international field.
HollywoodLifers, who do you think is going to win this huge third place game? Do the Americans have a chance against the Colombians? Who will you be rooting for in this Copa America game?
