New left side...Chandler for Beasley and Davis for Bedoya.

Still not sure about Chandler on the left...he's a right footed player who plays RB for his club.

This is going to be a good exhibition game. They should be right on par with ghana in terms of how good they are, so it will be good practice.

You underestimate Ghana...a team that actually made the WC. I agree that Turkey should provide stiffer competition than the last guys, but I expect Ghana to be better. If there's anything we should have learned in the last ten years, it should be to never underestimate Ghana.

Turkey has a far harder qualification process going through UEFA. If I was Turkey I'd consider moving into the AFC. They'd have walked into the tournament (well as much as any country can walk in). 


Granted, Ghana DESTROYED Egypt and I though Egypt would actually win that matchup.

Oh don't get me wrong, I don't underestimate ghana, they are a good team. However, turkey is pretty good as well. I do agree that ghana is a little better, but they are still similar levels of competition and it will be a great exhibition game for us to play.

I also hate that Nike has changed the red and a blue for our jerseys this year. I feel like it should be illegal or something.

I hate both uniformz.

Use our Nation's true colors. I don't want Fire Red and Electric Blue.

That turn combined with a nutmeg was ridiculous!


*For non-soccer afficinados a nutmeg is when you play the ball through the opponents legs and go around them. It's like the equivalent of an ankle breaking crossover.

Has the USMNT's defense every been good?  I feel like for as long as I've been watching them (which hasn't been very long to be honest), commentators always seem surprised when the D gets carved up, yet it always seems to happen.

Both sides have been carving up the other's D. We've been lucky to keep a clean sheet but do have they. Until now of course.
