If you've been following the Copa America at all, you'll know that the USA has achieved its goal of making it to the semi finals. They play Argentina tonight in Houston and it should be a good one! Granted, Argentina is the #1 team in the world right now and has one of the best players of all time (Lionel Messi), so the USAMNT is a huge underdog here. Never count out the home team, though!
Unfortunately the US will be missing 3 of their starters: Alejandro Bedoya, Bobby Wood and Jermaine Jones (due to the most ridiculous straight red card I've ever seen). Jones has been a stalwart in USA's midfield for about 7 years now, Alejandro Bedoya is an excellent worker who gets his job done without much flash, and Bobby Wood has been a standout in the offense, creating almost every USA goal-scoring opportunity so far (bright future ahead for this kid). We get Deandre Yedlin, a solid defender, back from his double yellow suspension, though, so that should help (that first yellow shouldn't have happened - the refs in this tournament have been AWFUL).
If you love soccer, I'm sure you're already going to be joining me in watching. If you aren't usually a soccer fan, turn on Fox Sports 1 tonight at 8pm CT and join the rest of your country in cheering on the underdogs as they take on one of the ultimate powerhouses in all of soccer!
PS: Special shout outs to Clint Dempsey (Texan who is one of the best goal scorers the US has ever had) and John Brooks who has had a crazy good tournament, saved the US several times and seems to noticeably improve with every game he plays!
