We Love Happy Suwon

"Happy Suwon" is the slogan for the Seoul suburb of 1.1 million people and it certainly applies. Everyone the U.S. team met, including the mayor, was very, very nice, gracious and yes, happy. U.S. Soccer is now 4-0-0 in the Suwon World Cup Stadium, which includes two wins for the U.S. women at the 2006 Peace Queen Cup, the win in the final today, and the U.S. men's glorious victory over Portugal at the 2002 World Cup. That game is commemorated in the tunnel of the stadium that leads to the locker rooms and the field.
