    Any chance that any of the games might be broadcast on TV? Even if not on local TV, and idea if the games might be broadcast elsewhere?

    If they play with the same heart as they did against the Canada team, they can win this thing. Not once did I see them get frustrated or give up during that game. They played as a team, and it showed. They have the skill and the talent, lets just hope they stay healthy, focused and fit. Good luck men.
