Happy USMNT game day, folks! And, I gotta say, it’s the first USMNT game day in a while about which I am actually not thoroughly ugh. 6-0 wins, man, they’re quite a boost.
Unsurprisingly, lots of links about the United States today, but there are some other things as well, so vamos!
Okay, yes, 6-0 was exciting and fun, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here.
Bruce: “He’s a left back, which is one of the criteria I think you should have for selecting a left back.” Whoa, get outta here with these bananas tactics.
Ah, the ol’ Donovan vs. Dempsey debate that I know no one is at all tired of.
“Across the map, Arena picked the U.S. pool's most talented players and put them in familiar positions — a simple idea that became unnecessarily abstract under Klinsmann.” Seriously, the logic, I can’t handle it.
Plz no Jermaine Jones. Plz.
Hooray! At least for now!
Some interesting insight into Megan Rapinoe’s activism.
List invalid, does not include Miro Klose anywhere. (Ok, just kidding, I know he’s retired. Also list is valid because *heart eyes emoji* for Philipp Lahm.)
I didn’t know the corner needed defending, but here we are.
Some awful news yesterday about Kofi Nti, a youth coach with the Richmond Kickers. You can donate here to a GoFundMe to assist with burial services and transporting his body back to his family in Ghana.
That’s all from me this morning—to the comments you go!
