Just hours after reports circulated claiming the upcoming U.S. Men’s National Team friendly against Ukraine would be cancelled, U.S. Soccer issued the following statement late Monday to confirm that the match will still be played.
“The Football Federation of Ukraine confirmed that their team will travel to Cyprus and the match will proceed as scheduled.”
Reports earlier on Monday quoted the Ukrainian Football Federation president as claiming the Ukrainian National Team would not play in the match due to the political strife in Ukraine.
What do you think of this development? Excited to hear the match is still on? Won’t believe it until the teams are on the field on Wednesday?
