SOCCER: U.S. will still play vs. Ukraine
CHICAGO (AP) — It looks as if the U.S. men’s national team will get to play Ukraine after all. Wednesday’s friendly in Larnaca, Cyprus, appeared to be in jeopardy because of the upheaval in Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.
But the U.S. Soccer Federation said Monday night in an emailed statement that the game would proceed as scheduled.
The friendly is part of the United States’ preparation for this summer’s World Cup.
