Newsday will be in the building tomorrow in Philly, where the United States plays its last game on American soil against Turkey (2 p.m., ESPN2).

We'll be live-blogging the game from Lincoln Financial Field, so if you're watching the game, stop by and share your thoughts. Unlike Tuesday night against the Czechs, we'll see the starters in action this time and get a better sense of the team's standing heading into Group C.
