USA to face the Netherlands, Japan and Nigeria in Olympic Tournament

By

The U.S. men’s Olympic soccer team will face Holland, Japan and Nigeria in this summer’s Olympic Games.

The draw, held early this morning, placed the Americans in a group with a tough Dutch squad and a Nigeria team with a strong collection of young players that will include key figures from the squad that reached the 2005 Under-20 World Cup final as well as the team that just won the 2007 Under-17 World Cup.

Not exactly an easy draw.

Here are all four groups:

  • USA, Netherlands, Nigeria, Japan
  • Argentina, Ivory Coast, Serbia, Australia,
  • Brazil, Belgium, China, New Zealand
  • Italy, Cameroon, South Korea, Honduras
