Ghana x Kenya x Malaysia x Puerto Rico x Detroit
This really is a total and complete "WTF?" story. The inimitable Steven Goff really has the perfect line on this and it really can't be topped so I won't bother to even attempt it. I will however add my own italics for added snarky emphasis.
"So let me get this straight: A World Cup-bound squad is going to travel to Detroit three weeks before the big event being held on its home continent to play in a meaningless tournament on artificial turf against Puerto Rico and then either Kenya or Malaysia?"
And speaking of random, stateside pre-World Cup friendly tournaments here's a rumour so salacious that it must be spelled with that extra "u" in it because it's either unlikely or unbelievable: The U.S. to host Czech Republic and Turkey in May tournament with at least one game played at Red Bull Arena.
