USA - Portugal kickoff moved to 6 PM ET


Per US Soccer's facebook page, FIFA has moved kickoff of the game in Manaus, because of the heat. A quick glance at the schedule, it looks like they moved all of the Manaus games to evening kickoffs.

No link, DGAF if Germans, because we're gonna whip their asses as soon as we finish with Portugal.

Don't care. Working Americans get to watch two out of three US group games.

ETA: Nevermid our second game (the one that the time was changed) is on a Sunday

The Portugal game was always on Sunday.

Anyway, I can't wait to see the ratings from two consecutive evening kickoffs.

On a serious note, I really do think we have an advantage over Portugal (and Germany for that matter) due to the climate.

Just our MLS/Mexico players, or do you think that the WCQ games are enough to give our Euro players an advantage?

Just wondering what your thought was.

It sucks that our game against Germany is mid week at noon.

Obviously the climate in Brazil is worse than in the US, but many of our players started in the Florida or California academies, so they have dealt with heat & much more than those in Europe have.

I can wait to watch a friendly. That shite ain't happening for a WC match.

I travel a little for work. I already told my boss he's welcome to send me somewhere.... but I'll be "occupied" in the middle of the day - no exceptions.

I've been to the northeast coast of Brazil during their winter. It's pretty pleasant. Germany will be fine.
