Call it a tune-up match. Call it a preview of the knockout rounds. But in any case, it's just another match between Pia Sundhage's Team USA and Kim Kwang-Min's North Korea on Tuesday, July 31.
With qualification to the knockout stages already sealed, the Stars will aim to go through without a single defeat. As for Chollima, they are in desperate waters and must win in order to stay alive. And with no FIFA World Cup to look forward to until at least 2019, now is the time to deliver for the Great Successor, Kim Jong-Un.
Kickoff at the home of Manchester United, Old Trafford, is scheduled for 12:15 p.m. ET. Here are 10 bold predictions for the match between the USA and North Korea.
