    Men's Soccer Team Beats Japan

    It was a game they had to win, but it's a start:

    U.S defeats Japan 1-0 on goal by Stuart Holden - Olympics - Yahoo! Sports

    Hope they can pull out at least one more.

    Wait. So the Olympics have started competition already?


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Overall no, but at least soccer started early, probably to get in all the games. I think the actual olympics start in a couple days.

    They start soccer early to get in all the games.

    The US was lucky to win this game. Edu played great, but had 2 near penalty calls at the end. Japan had plenty of chances, but horrible finishing. If a player like McBride had the chances that Japan had, we would have won 4-0.

    Have the Olympics always had the "under 23" rule for soccer competition or is this a new thing this time around?
