Mixed bag tonight, though a draw against Chile when rolling out the B Team is a good result.I’m really looking for 2 things:
Can they stay solid in the middle of the park? I want to see our guys stay consistently organized and aware in the middle of the park and force Chile to attack from wide areas.
Will Pulisic be more comfortable and intuitive on the ball? It was always going to be a tough go of it against Chile no matter who was running alongside Pulisic, but I wang to see more fluidity and decisiveness from him at the #10. I want to see some progress as he adapts to the role.
Just a rough night, honestly he's a much better passer than Pulisic, he doesn't have the top end take on ability of Pulisic, but he's a much more consistent distributor and chance creator at this point in their careers.If Lletget is the best Pulisic replacement we have, then the crop of younger attacking mids needs to get good fast. His passing’s been all over the map
Based only on the tiny flag images and abbreviations:I challenge anyone to figure out what those countries are just based on the abbreviations and flags.
Based only on the tiny flag images and abbreviations:
League A/Group A
Trinidad and Tobago
Leauge B/Group A
St. Kitts and Nevis
Antigua and Barbuda
St. Vincent and the Grenadines
League C/Group A
US Virgin Islands
British Virgin Islands
Turks and Cacos
My guesses for the ones you didn't know:
B/A- french flag probably French Guiana (of Guiana Francesa, making GUF a decent abbreviation)
C/A- french flag, has to be Saint Martin
C/B- I also have no clue, never seen that flag in my life
C/C- british territory starting with an A..... Anguilla I assume
The U.S. National Soccer Team Players Association is opposed to playing any game on sod placed atop artificial surfaces. On April 2, 2019, the USNSTPA sent the following email to U.S. Soccer Federation President Carlos Cordeiro. On April 8 we received a response from the U.S. Soccer legal counsel that the game would go ahead as scheduled," the players association wrote in the Thursday statement. "In the view of the Players Association, this is just one more example of a serious problem that the United States Soccer Federation is not advancing the interests of the players or the fans, but is solely focused on generating ever-increasing revenues and profits for the Federation, its employees, its sponsors, and the private businesses associated with the Federation.
