Pre-Olympic friendlies

Ivory Coast 0 – USA 0 (Pre-Olympic friendly, July 30, 2008) The Ivorians offered more goal threat in the Olympic warm-up game, Kafoumba Coulibaly and Sekou Cisse both had good chances which were well saved by Brad Guzan.

Cameroon 0 – Holland 2 (Pre-Olympic friendly, July 30, 2008) Roy Makaay threaded a lovely ball through to Ryan Babel for the opener, and the Liverpool man returned the favour by teeing up Makaay for the second.
