Foul Pulisic mode
And like three Canadian players touching Nation above the shoulders in an effort to connect with him. Bizarre stuff there at 16'. Will be interesting to see how that unfolds. Canada is definitely in the "sure we're fouling him but we're going to be real nice to you about it" mode.
Unless I'm missing something, this is probably Nation's biggest CONCACAF test so far isn't it?
Nation giving the emphatic no more in the background while Fox focuses on Aaronsen is pretty fitting.
Well he had to get that YC right and he did.
These matches are so predictable yet the referees seem incapable of doing anything to avoid the predictable eventualities. It’s crazy that Canada can do what it’s done for 30 mins to initiate all that and you don’t draw a line until you card an incident where you have to also card an American for retaliation? C’mon. You are rewarding the negative and foul tactics of a team by doing that.
He needs to get a much firmer grip on this match, particularly the Canadians.
Doesn't look like he's the one in control of the match.
If you give a team-wide PO caution, what's gonna happen for every subsequent foul on Pulisic
Only +2? Felt like it was twice that amount at least.
Quiet end to the first half. Let's see what the last 45 bring.
I have no idea what a foul is in this game right now.
This has the chance of getting really bad . . .
When every player on both teams stops playing, that’s a sign you might have missed a foul.
IDK. Maybe I'm underestimating how rough USA:CAN can get. Although I'd wager on Nation having one of these games during qualifying going down the drain.
But then, a goal from an advantage call….
That was a well seen and played advantage.
Advantage leads to a goal. Oh baby
Great advantage. Mike Dean gives two thumbs up.
Credit where due... a terrific advantage call leads to a goal!
But needed a delsyed YC as well for perfection.
If I’m going to criticize, I’ll also give credit where it’s due. Excellent advantage by Nation.
Well good job by the 4O I'm assuming.
Clearly intentional tactics by the Canadian team to harass and confront the referee with multiple players at every opportunity. So obvious, and should be stopped.
Big moment there, but I think no PK is correct.
How on earth is Johnston not in the book?
