D.C. United-Juventus Friendly Officially Off, United Looking For Another Opponent

The Herbalife World Football Challenge may have one less matchup on its schedule. Jueventus FC has officially pulled out of the July 28 match, leaving their opponents, D.C. United, scrambling to find a new opponent.

The United officially released a statement confirming that Jueventus has pulled out of the matchup, but that negotiations are underway for a replacement team.

We've received word that Juventus FC will no longer be playing in Washington, D.C. While we're disappointed with the news, D.C. United is already in discussions with another, major European team to fill that date and will share opponent and ticketing details as a deal is finalized.

The question has to be at this time is what team can the United get under such short notice. Though they say that they are in negotiations with another team, how will Jueventus' sudden exit effect negotiations for the new matchup?
