Dallas Cup Super Group Semifinals Tonight

It's been a week full of high drama at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco. Things started on Sunday with the opening day tripleheader featuring three fantastic games that went right down to the wire. Monday saw Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol come from two goals down to defeat Everton 4-3 in an epic game. On Wednesday, it was Eintracht Frankfurt who stole the show, scoring in the dying moments against Mexico to advance to the super group semifinals.

Of course, we all know what happened last night at FCD Stadium and tonight is another chapter in what has been a wonderful week! The Gordon Jago Super Group semifinals are set to kickoff in just a few hours as Germans Eintracht Frankfurt and their bombastic coach(worth the price of admission just to watch him) take on Brazilians Coritiba at 6PM in the first game while the second game is an epic English Premier League encounter between Everton FC and Manchester United. The semifinals usually draw a crowd of 7-10,000 and I think that crowd could certainly be attainable with the United-Everton pairing.

The first matchup, Eintracht Frankfurt vs Coritiba, is a rematch from last year's group decider that finished 2-2 and saw a bench clearing brawl bust out at the end of the game. This one is going to be two teams who remember each other and don't like each other. In other words, the amazing, intense soccer you've come to expect from the Super Group.

I don't think I need to sell you on the second game. You won't be able to get much closer to an English Premier League game in Texas than you will tonight as the reserves of Manchester United featuring the Keane brothers, who have both made their first team competitive debuts, take on an Everton FC side featuring Ross Barkley, a central midfielder who has made multiple Premier League appearances for the Toffees as well as the England U20 squad.

It's going to be absolutely immaculate weather and two games you won't want to miss!
