NEXT STOP, CUBA? USSF MEN'S SOCCER TEAM SEEKING GAME IN '00

          USSF officials "initiated discussions" with Cuban
     soccer officials last week "in an attempt to arrange" a
     match between the U.S. men's team and the Cuban team in
     Havana, according to Seth Wickersham of the WASHINGTON POST. 
     USSF Dir of Communications Jim Moorhouse said discussions
     are "very preliminary" for a summer 2000 game.  Wickersham
     notes that a U.S. nat'l team "hasn't played" in Cuba since
     '47 (WASH. POST, 8/20).  The AP reported that former MLS
     Commissioner Doug Logan was "acting on behalf" of the USSF
     and "hand delivered" a letter yesterday to Cuban Football
     General Secretary Luis Hernandez "requesting" a two-game
     friendly series.  Logan said by phone: "Not only was it
     warmly received, we've picked a day -- July 19" (AP, 8/19).
