USWNT Back in Action at Summer Olympics

Even though the United States U23 men crapped out during qualification, our awesome soccer ladies kick off their run for gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics with a match against France on Wednesday, July 25 (11:30a, NBC Sports Network). Hope Solo will be playing despite failing a drug test in June.

MLS All-Star Game

The MLS All-Stars take on Champions League winners Chelsea in what will likely be another display of American soccer incompetence. Oh, don’t be like that. Becks and  Henry aside, it’s like watching children trying to keep up with pro athletes. At least we’ll get the chance to heckle John Terry in person. Watch MLS All-Stars vs Chelsea on Wednesday, July 25 at 8:30p, ESPN2 & Telefutura.

• Goalkeepers: Dan Kennedy (Chivas USA), Jimmy Nielsen (Sporting Kansas City)

• Defenders: Steven Beitashour (San Jose Earthquakes), Aurelien Collin (Sporting Kansas City), Ramiro Corrales (San Jose Earthquakes), Jay DeMerit (Vancouver Whitecaps FC), Justin Morrow (San Jose Earthquakes), Carlos Valdes (Philadelphia Union)
