USMNT set to take on Nigeria in final World Cup send-off match

By Jane Sexton

The USMNT take on Nigeria tomorrow in the final match of its World Cup "Send-Off Series." The Americans have two victories under its belt, defeating Azerbaijan and Turkey in its previous friendlies. Despite the wins, the Stars-and-Stripes are still looking to put in a complete performance. RSL midfielder Kyle Beckerman made appearance last weekend against Turkey, subbing on at the start of the second half for midfielder Jermaine Jones, while RSL 'keeper Nick Rimando remained on the bench. Let's hope both players get a look on Saturday in what will be one of the last chances to impress U.S. Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann. A preview from MLSsoccer.com can be found here.
