United States Men’s National Team

dominant start. Great hack target. steep drop. Fatal error. Frustrating draw. The United States men’s national team It took its fans on a ride on the maelstrom of emotions on Monday, eventually settling for a 1-1 draw with Wells.

In a vacuum, it’s a respectable โ€” even good โ€” score. Given what it could have been, it’s a disappointment.

  • The USA dominated possession in the first half and the goal He finally came on in the 36th minutewith Christian Pulisic Sprint down the middle of the field and put the perfect pass into Tim Weah. It was awesome.
  • This would be the USMNT’s only shot on goal, and they were finally caught in a poor second half. Gareth Bale drew an error from Walker Zimmerman in the penalty area. Bale converted the penalty kick – even with Matt Turner Getting tiptoe to him – in the 82nd minute.

Holding on to the World Cup lead is no easy task, especially for a historically young team like the USA team. But Zimmerman, a 29-year-old veteran who has been named a starter for months, making the mistake is an especially harsh blow. He has the lowest rating of any American player in the Player ratings for roger gonzalez.

  • Gonzalez: Walker Zimmerman: 3/10 – Sturdy and reliable, at least in the air, it cleans some dangerous balls out of the box that can cause big trouble. It was another story on the ground. His foul was on Gareth Bale for conceding a penalty Reckless and amazing. He knew right away that it was made Fatal error. “

While a tie is by no means a death sentence for the US’s hopes for a run, it does put a huge additional emphasis on the US doing well Friday against England The team that thrashed Iran 6-2, the first World Cup tiebreaker is goal difference, so the United States can’t let things slip against a very talented England team.

Not to mention the honorable

Why the four-team football playoff made the weekend great ๐Ÿˆ

satisfy

The College Football Playoff picture hung in the balance seemingly all Saturday afternoon and into the night. Michigan And the TCU They need late field goals to keep their perfect records intact. Ohio State late in the first half. Tennessee Lost. USC It narrowly escaped a high-scoring thriller.

It’s what makes college football great: the best teams in high-stakes battles every weekend, not just against top rivals. But this drama is only possible with a four-team playoff: The 12-team playoff could mean fewer regular season games that we love so muchwrites Tom Fornelli.

  • stove: Instead of annoying losses that could cost these teams a berth in the CFP, it would have simply affected their seed. That doesn’t quite hold the same drama, does it? The argument many make for the expansion is that it will give us more meaningful games at a time. Late in the season, but we had a weekend that wasn’t supposed to offer a lot of drama, plenty of meaningful high-stakes games… The expansion is coming, but when it does, and you don’t experience another sabbatical like the one you just had in November, don’t say you weren’t warned.
