U.S. Men to take on Turkey in Philadelphia

The U.S. will take on Turkey at Lincoln Financial Field on May 29th in what will be their final tune up before the World Cup, according to the Associated Press.  An official announcement is due out tomorrow at a press conference with mayor Michael Nutter, U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati, and Eagles president Joe Banner.

Turkey is currently ranked 42nd in the world in the FIFA rankings. They were knocked out in the semifinals of Euro 2008 by Germany on a 90th minute goal by Philip Lahm after an impressive run through the tournament.  They missed out on qualifying for South Africa, failing to make it out of a tough group that included Spain.
