Friendly no more?

It looks like the United States-Catalonia match won't happen after all.

It's disappointing for this match to fall apart. It would have done the US players well to play in Nou Camp against some talented players but it wasn't meant to be. Not sure if the US can slide in another opponent on such short notice. As the date is on an international fixture date - and a big Euro qualifier date - it seems the U.S. may be out of options.

US fans will have to settle for Brazil in Chicago and Switzerland in Basel to close out this year's calendar, a pair of challenging and important matches for sure but a calendar that will suffer thanks to the Spanish FA.
