AC Milan's Ronaldinho (left, #80) and Club America's Juan Carlos Silva (#26) go toe to toe Wednesday night.
This game, along with the Mexico vs. Venezuela game last month, are attempts to show how the city of Atlanta are worthy of being a part of the bid to host the World Cup in the US in 2018. From the turnout of the two games, I think Atlanta passed with flying colors. There is a huge soccer base in Georgia and since we also have the biggest airport in the world, we would be a great city for World Cub games. Also, this showing might help the city to get a MLS team in the near future. I am sure the officials were impressed and maybe we can get more international games played in town soon.
