Let the countdown begin!


We’re exactly 100 days out from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. While the United States won’t be competing on the international stage, there will most certainly be a Rave Green influence this summer. Román Torres (Panama), Nicolás Lodeiro (Uruguay), Gustav Svensson (Sweden) and newcomer Kim Kee-hee (South Korea) all helped their respective countries during World Cup qualifying and have a chance to make the final roster. 


 Here are a few important dates to keep an eye on:
