This week the Galaxy released new details on the long awaited event. Although Manchester United’s full travel roster has yet to be released, the majority of their superstars should be in attendance at the Rose Bowl. One of the most recognizable sports franchises in the world, Manchester United will bring a roster to Southern California that includes Wayne Rooney, David De Gea, Shinji Kagawa, Juan Mata, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Antonio Valencia. In addition to the established superstars, newly signed Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw will also be part of the traveling squad.

Manchester United will also debut a new manager, current Dutch National Team manager Louis van Gaal. The veteran manager is one of the most respected managers in all of professional soccer, having just led Holland to a World Cup semifinal, where they lost on penalty kicks to Lionel Messi and Argentina. He’ll begin his tenure as Manchester United manager, replacing the sacked David Moyes, who managed United to a disappointing season in 2013-2014, failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League for the first time in several years. Moyes replaced the legendary Alex Ferguson, considered one of the greatest managers in the history of the sport. Van Gaal will have big shoes to fill, as did Moyes, but he’ll have a motivated roster looking to regain United’s customary spot in the Premier League standings.

ROONEY

Leading the way will be Wayne Rooney, one of the most recognizable stars in world soccer. Rooney had a short spell in Brazil this summer as part of a disappointing English National Team that failed to make it out of the group stage of the World Cup. In ten years as a Manchester United player Rooney has scored 216 goals. Rooney will be joined in the lineup by high priced signee Ander Herrera, who United paid 28 million pounds for this summer, and young left back Luke Shaw, who United made the highest paid teenager in world football this summer for a fee rumored to be around 30 million pounds. Shaw has an attacking style and has been compared to former Tottenham and current Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale.

After a slow start the Galaxy are on a solid run of play, unbeaten in six consecutive MLS matches. When the Galaxy face off with United their lineup will feature two players familiar with many on the Manchester United Roster, Robbie Keane and Landon Donovan. Former United States National Team member Robbie Rogers and current National Team defender Omar Gonzalez will also take part in the big matchup. The Galaxy are coached by former National Team coach Bruce Arena. The game will kick off at 7:30 PM.

How far can Team USA go in the 2014 World Cup?

Team USA World CUp

TEAM USA

The 2014 World Cup has already begun and we have already got a taste of which teams will do well and which ones will not. Brazil, Spain, England and Argentina entered the cup as the favorites for the title. Team USA is considered as underdog and it is in the “group of death”, together with Germany, Portugal and Ghana. It will be extremely difficult if not impossible for Team USA to get the ticket to the next round, as Portugal and Germany are two of the powerhouses of the competition and they have some of the best soccer players of the world in their arsenal. So, how far can Team USA really go? And how can it increase its chances to do better?

Well, first of all, we are talking about a team with several young players. That gives the opportunity to Team USA to stay aggressive and play with lots of energy. However, the downside is that most players lack of experience, especially in international events of that size. Even the older members of the team don’t have much experience of competitions of that level, they have never player against some of the best players of the world, like Christiano Ronaldo, who however might not be able to play due to a knee injury.

Of course, one of the biggest surprises we saw from Jurgen Klinsmann this summer was his decision to leave Landon Donovan out of the team. Donovan is by far the best US soccer player we’ve seen in the history of the Team USA and now, Klinsmann will have to find other solutions to help Team USA win. The Head Coach of the team expects much from Michael Bradley, a 26 – year old midfielder who is expected to create players and advance the ball from defense to offense. Team USA will definitely need Bradley’s creativity but also his passing skills, as it will try to attack its opponents from close range. Climp Dempsey is another key player for Jurgen Klinsmann. The veteran forward has been one of the most productive players of the team as of lately and he will need to provide his finishing skills to the team in order for it to be able to advance to the next round.

If Team USA manages to achieve a victory against Ghana, that will be a great success for them. Against Portugal and Germany it will be extremely difficult for USA to even get a draw. Both teams are contending for the cup and they are expected to be focused on their target. Of course, if Team USA somehow manages to advance to the next round, that can be considered as a triumph.
