US Soccer announces Iceland and Canada friendlies
   December 15, 2015 (12:17 PM) by Howie Michaels     Email This Post Email This Post

The January camp roster should be coming soon, and we now know the opponents for the pair of friendlies. The Yanks will face Iceland at 3:45 PM ET on Sunday, January 31 before a 10:15 PM ET tilt with Canada on Friday, February 5. Both matches will be played at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA.

Iceland qualified for Euro 2016 although this isn’t likely to be a first-team roster. Canada is Canada but has some decent young MLS talent.

The US hasn’t lost to Canada in 35 years. They haven’t played Iceland in over 20 years; the two nations are 2-2-2 all-time head-to-head. They also famously played twice in ice hockey at the 1994 Junior Goodwill Games, with Iceland capturing a 12-1 group stage victory before the Americans frantically rallied in the third-period of the gold medal game in a wild 5-5 (4-3 penalties) win. Gordon Bombay’s gutsy goalie switch was later replicated by Louis van Gaal in the 2014 World Cup quarterfinals.

Howie once received a death threat at a USA-Brazil friendly. He still believes in Fred Adu. He plays forward in coed rec, although not well.

    Where did everyone think the puck went? if its not in the net and didn’t hit the boards it must be in the glove.

    Yeah, that has always been weird despite it being arguably the greatest scene in cinematic history.
