Feels like an old school roster strategy.  Play d and bomb the ball forward … hope dike can wrecking ball the concacaf squads.  Hope that hoppe can play as a winger … may give him more options in bundesliga 

Yeah this is a squad thin on the wings but GGG said he's going to try things. Hoppe is one such experiment. 

Hope we get a breakout from Dike. We're going to need it.

Alphonso Davies for Canada is hurt and will return to Bayern Munich. That sucks but it's a good move. Canada has World Cup Final aspirations and shouldn't burn him in a regional B level tournament. 

Tournament kicks off tonight with Mexico vs Trinidad and Tobago. Our first fixture is tomorrow against Haiti.

If people are upset about us not bringing an A team like Mexico did, look no further further what happened to Chucky Lozano last night. Oof.

Canada cruised over Martinique. Really staking their claim as the 3rd or 4th best team in CONCACAF.

Zardez looks good.  Hot damn. 1-0 US after a header from Vines in the 8th.

Shaq Moore I like it. Haiti has no answer.

Welp. Underwhelming win. 

 

But we cap tied Busio and that's huge.

Saw a feature on Walker Zimmerman. His great-grandfather (Howell Long) and grandfather (Jimmy Long) were AU football captains. Nice connection there.

Last night was as comprehensive of a win as we've had all year. Just don't understand the decision to try Acosta at RWB. GGG's boy, I guess.

Half time still 0-0. 🇲🇽 has won possession so far, but 🇺🇸 has had a few good counter attacks. We had a great chance for a header goal but just missed it side.  Matt Turner has made a few good saves.

My goodness at the chances for US in second half.  Need to hit one home before Mexico does.

Almost complete with first ET period.  Still zeros.  I sure hope US can win this thing in play before shootout.  We have been way off on goal with a lot of sailing over the crossbars.  Don't want to get into PKs.

2 trophies this summer, wins over Mexico.  Our "B" team just beat the Mexican "A" team.  Heck of a job! Great job,  Greg!

Miles Robinson, so glad he's in the A

Would love for Mexico to fire Tata and him come back, too lol

Robinson had a good tournament, especially after Zimmerman went down. He's carved himself out a place in the A roster. 

This was a tournament that couldn't have gone better for guys on the edge of the A roster. Acosta, Turner, Gyasi. They all pretty much staked their claim for belonging.

Very good point. Zardes in particular is just undeniable at this point. Doesn't matter if he's actually a good soccer player, lol. Dude gets goals.
