I've been meaning to put this together for some time. For our newer US soccer fans, here is a little primer of things to know about the history of your team and some of the background of internationa

I didn't get to see a lot of the match because I had a fussy infant and a toddler to get to bed.  I saw the last 30 minutes or so.  I guess that was a blessing.  Even in the last 30 minutes, I found m

not a soccer fan here, how does this work?  Argentina gets ball for the first 45 minutes then the US gets it in the 2nd half?

Not that this bunch of players is usually tidy on the ball, but looking decidedly uncomfortable with their first touches so far

not that it should be too much of an excuse but the footing looks bad.  players are dropping like flies on both sides

Last week, a contractor pulled out the 20 year old railroad ties that bordered my driveway. He put down dirt and apparently some grass seed in the 18 inch wide space between my driveway and my neighbor's.

It would make a better pitch than what we're playing on right now.

Morris does not look like a soccer player but he is strangely effective.

True, he looks too “barrel chested” for a soccer guy but he makes some good runs and can find the back of the net.

@USMNT

With goals in 2019, should @A_LoLo12 (Aaron Long) score another tonight, he would tie the record for most goals by a #USMNT defender in a calendar year which is jointly held by @AlexiLalas (1993), @MarceloBalboa17 (1994) and @BocaBoca3 (2003).

Long is going to have a long talk with Morris after this game!!!!

:lmao:

really nice to see Morris so confident on his left now that he is willing to drive a cross.   What an improvement.

He was showing that in the playoffs too. Some nice growth from him this year

I am very pleased with his development.  We really could not expect more (especially at his age where players rarely improve something so basic).

I still want to see the team get to the point where Morris is a first choice sub and not a first choice starter.

Announced attendance at the Can-Cuba game in this stadium was 420.  I'm guessing it'll be less tonight.

there was one shot of the camera side of the field which looked like a bigger stand and it was full so I could see some where around that number.

I want to see more too, but we have to acknowledge being the only striker against a complete bunker is not fun for any player.

And the field.

But he still should be capable of opening up space off the dribble and shooting. They're bunkered, but hes had room

Lol. Announcers must have gotten a "positives only"  talking to prior to this one.

There is NOTHING to take out of this game. As long as nobody got hurt, nothing else mattered. They're playing a high school team on a cow pasture

Long, ream and especially Yueill have been good tonight. And obviously Morris, motm

None of them are under too much pressure, so grains of salt and all, but I've really like yieills grit and defensive closing ability.

Well..sorta 

But you either care about the other stuff like shape, spacing, creating chances, ball movement, or not. It's against a crap team, but they're doing it at least. My expectations have dropped so far I actually wasn't expecting it 

But yeah- no whammies here.every one walk off healthy and it's a win. (yedlin looked like he took a knock right before coming out)

100% correct imo.   Outside of the actual W, the game could not be any more meaningless in the big scheme of things.
