    Ref stopping the game five seconds before full time, which I get situationally.

    Ref has gotten kinda trigger happy, but it does seem to have reduced the losing CONCACAF team rage fouls so fair play to him.

    Honduras actually showed up for the second half so the US doesn’t look quite as impressive. Still looking pretty good though and the presence of Honduras attacking moves should open up even more transition.

    We look utterly irritating to try and play through in the press. Honduras can’t deal with it at all unless we cough it up in midfield and even then, barely.

    Spurs 22/23: You get a transfer, and you get a transfer, and you get a transfer...

    The only Pepi-like striker who's any good in this age group unfortunately is Pepi, and his blowing past this team is great for the US program overall but is tough for this specific U20 team.

    Surprised there’s VAR. Hopefully it does something with this weird call. Penalty it is! Not a foul on you to have your damn clock cleaned out.
