The USA Revolution men and USA Freedom both missed opportunities to advance to their respective Grand Finals on Tuesday at Royal Park. It was a bittersweet symphony for both contingents to be sure, as the Revos knocked back France by 113 points, while the Freedom fell by 44 points to the defending champions from Canada.
Both sides still have one game left for third place, however, one that will be there for the taking for pride, momentum, and some more happy memories of what has already been a legendary trip.
