On This Day in U.S. MNT History

This is the third time the U.S. MNT will have played on June 15, with decidedly different results. The first time out came during the 1998 FIFA World Cup, when the U.S. lost 2-0 to Germany. The second match on this date came at the start of qualifying for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, when the U.S. trounced Barbados by an 8-0 scoreline to establish the largest margin of victory in team history.

(Also on the this day the Magna Carta was signed in 1215, providing the foundations of the rule of constitutional law, and in 1775 the Continental Army appointed George Washington the Commander in Chief, thus beginning the march towards the birth of a free nation to be called the United States of America.)

Class dismissed.
