Cosmos to host NYCFC with win over Jersey Express

The draw had been done for the fourth round of the US Open Cup, and Cosmos fans should be thrilled with the outcome. If the boys in green knock off the Jersey Express next Wednesday at Belson Stadium, they'll earn the right to host New York's new MLS club, New York City FC.

Having been given a home match against the New York Red Bulls in 2014, NYCFC is something of a ream draw for Cosmos fans. Not only would it give the club the opportunity to knock out one of the city's division one sides fro the second year running, but given how poorly Manchester City's baby brothers have looked on the pitch this season, they should be prohibitive favorites to do so, as well.

Should the match take place, it will be held at Hofstra's Shuart Stadium on June 16th, at 7:30 om ET. I'd expect a sellout crowd. The full draw for round four can be found here.
