Remember, Charleston will face the Vancouver Whitecaps in the second match on Saturday. The 'Caps are captained by EPL legend Jay Demerit and Vancouver just recently signed former Battery striker Tom "Wildman" Heinemann. And since Charleston has been paired with the Houston Dynamo for a few matches this season, it will be good have a look at our MLS competition.
In the meantime, have you been following the Disney Pro Soccer Classic??
So far, its been an excellent showcase of up-and-coming talent, with lively preseason matches between MLS, USL, and NASL teams. All the games are being streamed live on MLSsoccer.com.
An incredibly sharp Columbus Crew steamrolled the Philadelphia Union 4-0 earlier this afternoon. Philly fielded several USL vets called up from Harrisburg, but the Union were no match for the Finlay & Finley show as Dominic Oduro played his part in dismantling the opposition as well.
Can't catch the games live? No problem, highlights and full replays of every match are right here.
Also, the Desert Diamond Cup kicks off tonight as the Seattle Sounders take on the New England Revs. Look for former Arsenal back Mikael Silvestre to feature for Seattle since the Premier League vet was only just snatched up from the Portland Timbers training camp.
Not enough for your football fix? I heard some tidbit about an epic Champions League match or something like that...but if that won't do ya, then you'll just have to wait til Saturday!
(And if for some reason you can't make it to the 'Baud, those games will be streamed live on UNATION!!)
