U.S. and Cuba to Play World Cup Qualifying Game in Washington, DC This Saturday
The U.S. national soccer team will play Cuba in a World Cup qualifying game at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC this coming Saturday night, October 11th.
With a victory, the U.S. (3-0 in qualifying matches) would clinch a spot in next year's final round of regional qualifying for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Cuba (0-3) has only a slim chance of advancing.
The U.S. defeated Cuba on September 6th in Havana by a score of 1 - 0. That game marked the first time the U.S. national soccer team played in Havana since 1947.
