    Ugh. Miazga+Gonzo. On the other hand Cannon and Lovitz will offer some more cover than Lima and Ream, but still.

    Its squad rotation, cant say much else.

    I just hope it doesn't cost us Curacao in the quarters.

    The thing I'm not looking for in tonight's match, even with a second-string squad:

    Moral victories

    This XI should be able to win Group D, especially with 3 strong subs to help them finish the job.

    I think the debate will be a more entertaining dumpster fire than this. We will see.

    I argued for keeping the momentum but I’ve got full respect for squad rotation. Main thing I’m looking for is individual performances and continuation of a progressive system.

    Wow, when I was editing this infographic it didn’t even faze me who started — now that I look at it again...

    What a weird lineup.

    Escobar, Cummings, Nelson and Gabriel Torres are the only starters Panama is fielding, resting #1 keeper Mejia, Murillo, Davis, Barcenas, Cooper, Roman Torres & Quintero.

    Looks like a game intended to be a test of the bench, and a likely midfield battle.

    Pomykal and FCD kickoff at 9 EST if you’re interested in watching talent.

    Donovan's analysis after the segment is noteworthy. He stated that Trapp's not the type of leader that grabs people by the scruff of the neck on the field, but universally praises his presence in the locker room. Donovan then states that Trapp is effective in certain types of games for the U.S., but that Trapp needs to prove that he can hang in the hard, physical international matches to play more in tough matches for the U.S. If not, maybe Trapp is a rotational starter.

    I think that's a remarkably fair assessment of Trapp. Donovan is usually the best US analyst on Fox.

    If by FCD you meant FC Dallas then that is MLS so, no talent there. Move on nothing to see here.

    I guess this also shows right now our A-team striker is Zardes.

    I kinda wish this game wasn't the last game in the group stage now.

    We finally face a decent team and everyone is resting lol

    It’s sad that the US has regressed so much that we equate Panama as a “decent team.”

    I hope they remain so. The last thing I wish to see is the Panamanians in indecent attire.

    I'd love the commentating to weather the test of time. I heard multiple criticisms of McKennie in the last match and it was an excellent performance from him.

    I think commentating is a difficult gig live. However, they can at the bare minimum watch the match objectively.

    They're never going to be to damning until after the fact, but Donovan is the best at being both positive and leaving room to read between the lines.

    USSF/Nike should have gone with a denim blue for this design.

    As for the game at hand? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I have yet to see a US match where the commentators did not detract from he match.
