Dunno, this may be his peak World Cup, but pretty sure he'll still be playing at a high level then and on the squad unless injuries derail his career.

Olympics for our youth players but mainly just friendlies until 2012 when qualifying begins.

I don't know if this is for sure, but the Gold Cup and Copa America both happen during July (at least, in 2009 the Gold Cup was in July, and the 2011 CA is scheduled for July).

It would be fun to take a trip to NY and watch that match. Next to 0% chance I would ever do it but sounds like a cool idea. Mostly because I've never been to NY.

Yeah, wouldn't be worth it just to see them get crushed. I live there though so it'd be cool. I've never been to a match.

for next years copa america, mexico will only be allowed to send a u23 team with 5 over-age players.

is that for every team that is going to play in next years copa america or only mexico?

Me either. I'd go to an MLS match, or anything. I've never seen a pro soccer match.
