So the US scrapes through and this collection of "talent" is gonna get thrashed by a thoroughly professional Qatari squad.

I have no idea why folks think we’ll get thrashed by Qatar.  They drew with Panama and it could have been a draw at 90 against ES.  Not saying we’ll win (if we hold on) but I don’t see us getting thrashed.

Agreed, Qatar will be favored but we have some piece here to give them a run for their money.

About time.  Nice cross by Roldan there.  Great finish by Hoppe.

Not too sure about subbing Hoppe off... He's been our only real threat.

He was pretty gassed even with that burst of energy at the end there.

It was Zardoz movement in the box that gave space for Hoppe.

Yeah their defense is terrible. It’s going to be a fun one if we can hold on.

We've given up one goal through almost four games.

Yeah. What I've seen of them, some decent guys going forward, who can certainly harm the US, but nothing that makes me think they're auto-winners.

He's not THAT wrong though.  Lletget has been very poor today.  Williamson should've started instead of him.

Fixed

He's been meh, for sure. But defense has been ok. And ok with the ball at his feet. Crossing and set pieces have been drek.

Acosta solidified his spot as Adams backup imo, at least for the matches in 2021. Qualifying is going to be here before we know it. 

Agree here.  Really nice effort today.  7.5.  He should have a roster spot locked up for the ocho.

Ok so Acosta's top game is no longer a question of quality.  This was excellent.

Now can he be consistent at this high level.....

We'll see against Qatar

A team I think Dike can cause some trouble against.

I assume the playing surface will be equally as crappy for the semis, another NFL stadium that normally has field turf

Where is it Thursday?
