U.S. Soccer - A Memorial Day Weekend Send-Off

The United States men's national team completed its stateside training with a 2-1 victory over Turkey at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Saturday. The result of the match itself wasn't terribly important, but leaving for South Africa on a high note sure helps the morale of the team, not to mention the thousands upon thousands who have followed this team for the last four years, showing up in droves to cheer, quite possibly, the best hope the U.S. has ever sent to the World Cup.

↵Here are highlights of this weekend's match. And we'll have much more on the World Cup – and the chances of the United States – in the weeks to come. For now, here's a little video to commemorate the weekend's send-off.

↵We wish everyone out there a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day.
