Sweden - 367 Days Ago

Like this year, the United States opened up the 2008 campaign with a friendly against Sweden here at The Home Depot Center. The 2-0 victory became a part of several individual and team records set that year, beginning with official passing of the goalscoring torch as Landon Donovan climbed to the top spot of the USA's all-time goalscoring chart. Eddie Robinson snatched his own slice of history, becoming the 44th U.S. player to join the first goal - first cap club.

As you get primed up for Saturday, get a head start by watching all the highlights and pre-game hype from last year's showdown with Sweden here.
