I'm hoping to catch most of these matches and get a good look at our potential squad players. I definitely should be able to see the Hong Kong and Rotterdam matches, but I'll have to wait and see. The player I'm looking forward the most to seeing is Sebastien Leto. Maybe he'll be the answer on the left. As usual, I expect us to lose most of these contests.
