Should be a win. Should.
Game means nothing to U.S. (already qualified for next round) and everything to Panama as Haiti shocks the tourney with a current 4 pts. A Panama win pushes them into 2nd in the group but Haiti should be fine as a 3rd place team with 4 pts (top 2 3rd place teams advance). A tie from Panama might push the to the next round with 3 pts.
- Chandler, Alvarado, Brooks, Johnson
- Bedoya, Beckerman, Bradley, Morales
- Wondo, Zardes
I'd prob play Chandler and Jozy this whole game and then sit them the rest of the tourney (ok maybe Jozy as a sub for 15 minutes) but I can deal with this mix as Zardes could use 60 min. Wondo is fine for garbage games.... Ice Man rest of tournament up top with Zardes I hope.
I'd have liked to see Johnson at an outside mid but he seems stuck at D for the U.S. Morales will be interesting to watch to see if he has any impact.
So rivals Seattle and Portland played in some tournament.
Seattle had a dude dismissed with a second yellow. Then another guy was shown a straight red for an elbow.
This Dempsey did this (see embed below):
Seattle finished the game with 7 men (a couple injuries and all subs used).
For all the MGoSoccer fans out there, the USA U-20 team takes on Serbia in the World Cup quarterfinals at 12:30 tonight on FS1.
These games have been really late/early in the morning since the tournament is in New Zealand, so i'll happily take a 12:30am kickoff on a Saturday night. Exciting to see the future of US soccer with this squad.
