Report: USA to play Egypt

Us soccer

The U.S. national team might be heading to the Middle East in February. A report from Egypt suggests that both the USSF and Egypt's FA are in the final stages of negogiations to play a friendly in Cairo on February 9, the first FIFA friendly date of next year.

The game would be a rematch of the 2009 Confederations Cup group match that the U.S. won 3-0 that secured passage through to the semifinal matchup against Spain. Egypt needed to avoid a loss by two goals or less to advance, and failed to secure the result.

It would be the second friendly scheduled for 2011, with the U.S. men's team set to play Chile in 2010.

What do you think of the news? Excited at the prospect of playing Egypt? Think the friendly will happen?
