Peaceful Day

It's an absolutely fantastic day in Suwon, South Korea, as the USA is warming up for it's opening match against Australia. It's 78 degrees, a few wisps of clouds in the sky and a light breeze. It's a bit humid, but otherwise the Peace Cup organizers couldn't have ordered a better day for soccer. The field is wide, but a bit short, meaning U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo's prodigious punts could become an offensive weapon today. The field is in good shape overall, but it's a bit bumpy in spots. Should be a great game between two teams who combined for 14 goals in two games earlier this Spring. Here is the U.S. starting lineup:

USA: 18-Hope Solo; 17-Lori Chalupny, 3-Christie Rampone – Capt., 15-Kate Markgraf, 2-Heather Mitts; 9-Heather O’Reilly, 7-Shannon Boxx, 11-Carli Lloyd, 5-Lindsay Tarpley; 6-Natasha Kai, 20-Abby Wambach.
