USA Takes On Argentina in Copa Semi [VIDEO]
The men's national soccer team for the United States may be heading into the biggest game in the history of the sport in America as it faces Argentina in a semi-final match-up of the Copa America on Tuesday night.
The US came out on top of their group after coming on strong in their final two match-ups and took care of Ecuador 2-1 this past Thursday in the quarterfinal. This contest however will be a whole different battle as Lio Messi and the Argentinian side are the only team to have won every match-up they've played in the Copa America this June.
The American side made its first semi-final appearance in the Copa America since the mid-1990s and are hoping for a similar run that they celebrated in the Confederations Cup seven years ago when they took down then top ranked Spain 2-0 in the semi-final of that tournament. If the US is to pull the upset, they will have to do so with Jermaine Jones, Alejandro Bedoya, and Bobby Wood who all accumulated too many yellow cards or were sent off during the game versus Ecuador.
The start to the semi-final match-up with Argentina will get underway at 9 p.m. this evening from Houston.
