Match Day: USMNT takes on Azerbaijan
After two weeks at Stanford for World Cup camp - and now knowing which 23 men will represent the United States in Brazil this summer - the USMNT squad kicks off their first of three "Summer Send-Off" matches in San Francisco on Tuesday.
The group, which includes San Jose Earthquakes captain Chris Wondolowski, faces Azerbaijan at Candlestick Park; kickoff is set for 7 p.m. PT. This is the first time these nations will meet on the senior international level.
After playing Azerbaijan, most recently ranked 85th in the FIFA World Rankings, the USMNT travels to New Jersey to face Turkey on June 1 and to Florida to take on Nigeria on June 7. From there, the squad departs for the 2014 World Cup with their opening match against Ghana on June 16.
Tickets are still available to USA vs. Azerbaijan at Candlestick. Fans can watch on ESPN2, WatchESPN or UniMas.
