US Soccer Cancels Exhibition Game in Egypt
CHICAGO (AP) -- The U.S. national soccer team has canceled its Feb. 9 exhibition against Egypt in Cairo because of the political turmoil there.

The game against the Egyptian national team had been announced on Dec. 13.

U.S. Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati said Monday that ``due to the current situation all parties agreed it was best to cancel the match.''

The next game for the U.S. team will be March 27 against Argentina at East Rutherford, N.J.
