CRYSTAL Palace co-chairman Stephen Browett has confirmed that two of the Eagles' three pre-season games in the United States will be against MLS sides. Tony Pulis' squad look set to travel to the east coast, ruling out any fans' hopes of playing the LA Galaxy. However, a game against the New York Redbulls, who have the likes of Thierry Henry, Bradley Wright-Phillips and Tim Cahill, could be on the agenda. Negotiations have gone well and an announcement of who Palace are playing is set imminently. "There was a small trip to the east coast a few years ago but now we're looking at playing two MLS teams and a team who play in the second division in the USA," Browett told the Advertiser. "It's not a tournament, we're travelling to three different clubs. They are kind of decided but they're not confirmed. But two out of the three are MLS teams." Furthermore, Browett was quoted on the BBS messageboard, saying: "Provisionally it's a 10 day tour with 3 matches in 3 different East Coast(ish) cities."
