Japan cancelled their two games in the US next week due to concerns with the swine flu.  Silly silly Japanese.  The Japan Football Association, which announced the decision, said it may have to pay damages for breach of contract.

"This is an unfortunate situation, but one that we had absolutely no control over," said US Soccer president Sunil Gulati. "We have been assured that the risk to the participating teams is exceptionally low, but we accept the Japanese Federation's decision not to travel."
