    Hoppe commands the far post and leaps highest for a header for 1-0 lead. Cross from Rolland was a looper, not driven, but just out of GK Blake’s reach.

    Gold cup final between US and Mexico: 1-0 Robinson with a heroic header in minute 117 off a perfect free kick delivery by Acosta. Both squads played positive, attacking football, but both teams did not not finish attacks with any confidence at all.
    Acosta, Robinson, Williamson and Turner were standouts.
    Zardes and Arriola were just awful. Arriola has had three shots with only the goalie to beat and missed them all. Zardes completely wiffed on two perfect crosses. US could easily have scored 3-4 goals.

    That was an absolutely beautiful header. Will remember that one for a long long time.

    I’m not sure Berhalter is some tactical genius or anything, but he does make adjustments and those guy play their tails off.

    This wasn't a great competition in terms of quality of play, what with us and other squads missing top European players (but with Qatar?), but it's a good sign that we can grind through CONCACAF games with less than our best. World Cup qualifying is just around the corner and missing out again is unthinkable.
    Reading comprehension is not just an ability, it's a choice

    Qatar are the reigning Asian champs. They are actually a solid team.

    This. That was a really quality win for the US frankly, especially with our B team.
    Well, that's what those words mean. He was here. If they don't keep him, he will have been lost/subtracted. I headed out the door today with two shoes on my feet. If I don't return with them, I have lost them. If I do return with them, I haven't added them. ---M2

    The Qatar win actually bumped the USMNT up to 16th in the world in FIFA rankings

    Re: 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup

    Wow..amazing win. Thank GOD I DVR'd it as I almost didn't thinking we had no chance to win last night. Acosta, Hoppe, Turner and Robinson all played their hearts out. Arriola's shots were oh so close too.

    Even though that wasn't Mexico's starting 11 come WC time including their best player Jimenez its a lot closer than El Tri fans will admit. I'm seeing at least 5 or 6 guys on team Mexico that likely will be starting compared to probably no starters for the US. Acosta was great but I can't see him staring over a healthy Adams. Turner is worthy of the conversation but I can't see Steffen losing his spot. Miles Robinson has a shot but is still an underdog. On the other hand Mexico will likely start Gallardo, Araujo, Chaka, Herrera, Alvarez, Tecatito and possibly even Salcedo, Moreno, Guttierez and Pizarro who all played last night. Forget Vela and Chicharito who ain't gonna play for different reasons. Last night Mexico fielded their A- team and ours was a B/C team. The Mexican squad was not far below what they fielded in the Nations League Final really.

    Below is a good thread by El Tri fans more knowledgable than me.

    I think Turner absolutely put himself into the conversation over Steffen.

    Steffen is absolutely more talented, but he makes me nervous.

    I don’t think anyone else is part of the best 11, but with the way the qualifying schedule is set up, several of those guys will get a lot of minutes.

    He did have that killer final against Mexico a couple months ago.

    I’m not saying either one of those guys is a starter, just that it’s a conversation. I don’t think you can just write Steffen is the starter for sure.

    Steffen's got to play. He can't be dealing with rust, especially for one of his main strengths which is playing the ball out with his feet.

    I've gotten to see Turner's whole career. The guy makes big stops. He's got the nerve you want in a #1. Some European club really should pony up some cash for him in the January transfer window. He's outstanding.
    Now begins the winter of our discombobulation.
