Four coaches from four countries with four widely different agendas. That's what is featured in U.S. Cup '97, the four-team, six-game international soccer tournament that begins tonight with a doubleheader at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium and then moves to the Rose Bowl. For Bora Milutinovic, it's a matter of win or face intense criticism in Mexico, and because of that he has brought a full-strength team whose only missing starter is Los Angeles Galaxy goalkeeper Jorge Campos.

There was no stiff-upper-lipping going on Thursday in England, just lots of Brit-bashing, by Brits. England's 2-0 defeat by the United States in the U.S. Cup soccer tournament Wednesday was the ultimate humiliation for the country that invented the game. As the Daily Mirror put it, "We Can't Get Any Lower." According to the Daily Express, the defeat was "an abject failure against a third-rate soccer nation."
