The United States are looking to improve to 3-0 when they take on host nation Great Britain. This should be a game that Team USA should win, and fairly easily since Great Britain is not a world power and are in the London Olympics because they are the host country.

So far Grat Britain is 0-2, have been outscored by 23 goals in loses to Romania and Serbia. In the post game of the last broadcast, Ryan Bailey was asked about Great Britain and he mentioned that they can not take Great Britain lightly because they have never played them before.

In the 2012 FINA World League Great Britain lost all four games in the preliminary stages of their European grouping. Their closet game was an 11-9 loss to Russia. There is not much to say in this game because Team USA should easily win and get some of the starters some more rest and divide the playing time up fairly even. The rest will be much needed since the game against Romania was extremely physical.

Also, look for backup goalie Chay Lapin to get some playing time against Great Britain, not sure if he will start but he should see some Olympic action.
