| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The Fire may be done with its international matches for this season, but a big one will be coming to Soldier Field on Oct. 7. The U.S. national team will take on Poland in that one.
A goal by ex-Fire player Carlos Bocanegra in the 88th minute gave the U.S. a 1-1 draw with Poland on July 11, 2004, at Soldier Field in a match that drew 40,000. The teams last met on March 26, 2008, with the U.S. romping 3-0 in Krakow, Poland.
The U.S. and Poland have met 16 times since 1924. The U.S. has a 7-7-2 record in those meetings.
