Weekly News Wrap-Up: May 24th

So Minnesota has had a slower news week, but big news for the US Men’s National Team this week with the 23 man roster announced.  The big question for Minnesota United FC fans, have you purchased your Swansea friendly tickets?

Minnesota vs. Carolina Railhawks Team Preview

This should be a great game, and I’m predicting a 2-0 Minnesota win.  Big question though, will Dias start, with his head injury?

RESERVES WATCH: United Reserves start their season

The Minnesota United Reserves started their season last weekend, with a loss against St. Louis Bordo 1-4 and a win over Eau Claire Airis 7-2.  There’s a home game this weekend on Sunday.  If you are interested in this team, check out the schedule.

US Men’s National Team News

Want to watch pre-World Cup friendlies on TV? This post has as many channels and times as can be found.

The big news is that Landon Donovan is off the 23 man World Cup Roster.  There’s some interesting commentary about the exclusion.  For me, this is overall a great team, but Donovan’s exclusion I don’t agree with.  I get it though.  He’s not one of the best 11 players on the team, and Klinnsman didn’t want him coming off the bench.
