May 23, 2007 — Hold off on those Beijing tickets

Last Sunday, the United States women’s national team won a four-nations tournament in Chile with a 1-0 win over Argentina.

It was a fine win, and it is helping our core of elite players break the mystique that the Albicelestes have held the last couple of decades.

It is very important to note, however, that the team that Argentina put on the field in that tournament did not have the services of several players who, in total, have amassed more than 1,300 caps.

That’s why I think the Pan Am Games are still going to be a tough assignment, despite this win and last year’s Miracle on Turf in College Park.
