ASN Morning Read: Thrashing About for Wins
March 28, 2016
- U.S. Men Fall to Guatemala, 2-0, in Depressing Display
- Klinsmann, Bradley, Mix Earn Lowest ASN Ratings
- I mean, that is sort of fun:
Tonight appears to be the 1st time in the modern era (since 1990) that #USMNT subbed off both starting center backs in a competitive match.— Paul Carr (@PCarrESPN) March 26, 2016
- This is accurate: "There have been moments when Klinsmann has achieved a sort of equilibrium, such as during the latter stages of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, and even at the tournament itself. But at present, what is evident is a U.S. national team that is currently thrashing about, unsure of what it is or where it's heading."
- As is this: "Michael Bradley warned that the United States does not have a 'divine right' to play in the World Cup after the team’s qualification for the 2018 tournament was jeopardized by a disappointing upset defeat to Guatemala."
- Was Friday's Loss a Hiccup or Proof that the US Stinks?
- We're on to Columbus.
- Make your Starting XI for Tuesday's vital qualifier.
- Young Yanks Hang on for Key Draw Against Colombia
- So you're saying there are still many chances?
