International Friendly: USA vs. Turkey Live Stream (Free Online Video)
USA vs. Turkey Live Stream: The United States men’s national soccer team takes on the Crescent Stars of Turkey this afternoon in a friendly encounter before flying to Johannesburg for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
USA head coach Bob Bradley have already chosen the 23-man roster for next month’s football extravaganza, so the 2:00 p.m. match at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia represents the first for the fully formed World Cup Team.
Bradley’s men hope to reverse the losing trend it has been on for the past seven months having won only one game in their past seven. The Yanks leave Sunday, and once in South Africa, the Americans play Australia in another friendly before their first competitive match against powerhouse England. Bradley has hinted that the 11 men who start against Turkey will also feature versus England on June 12.
The Crescent Stars, meanwhile, didn’t make it to Johannesburg after finishing a distant third behind Spain and Belgium in the UEFA Group 5 qualifiers. The Turks, led by midfielder Arda Turan, have not been in the tournament after finishing third in 2002 World Cup finals.
UPDATE: Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey scored second-half goals for Team USA who came from behind to beat Turkey 2-1.
