Here’s the schedule:
4:30: Portugal-North Korea
7 a.m.: Chile-Switzerland
General manager Adrian Hanauer remains in South Africa this week, and I believe he’s planning to watch the Chile-Switzerland match.
“I’m very, very happy for Blaise,” Hanauer said before flying out. “For him to get a chance in a group where potentially they could go through is exciting. I hope he plays well and will be with us as soon as possible – although we don’t want to wish that they get knocked out of the group stage, of course.”
Hanauer said his trip to South Africa is a mixture of work and pleasure. He planned to visit a wildlife reserve, attend all of the USA games, and scout some players who could be signed when the next international transfer window opens July 15. However, he’s leaving later this week and will join the Sounders in Philly for their Sunday return to MLS play.
