I’m going with...
So weird. When they play a friendly in Europe, they don't have anyone who can play striker and have to drag Lletget across the pond. Now, back in the States, we still don't have anyone to play striker so one of the Euros comes back, even though Lletget is already in the squad. And here I was really hoping to get a look at Deke and back then had been wanting to see Soto.
Whatever, I'm really interested in seeing how Soto looks with more time on the field and I'm hoping that McKenzie shows well. Also curious to see Aaronson. Several others are at east mildly interesting to see. Overall one of the biggest things to me will be seeing if the "new" midfield setup as played in the Wales and Panama games follows the team into this game or if he will use a different midfield strategy with a different squad.
Well, I think it is likely different. While the Adams + McKennie + Musah is a 6 with two 8s (in my view), if we see Acosta + Lletget + Aaronson, that is a 6 with two 8/10 types. Much more offensive setup.
Hamid; Araujo, Long, McKenzie, Vines; Aaronson, Yuiell, Arriola; Mueller, Akinola, Lletget
Looks like a 4-4-2 but a 4-3-3 in transition.
I'm so tired of Lletget.
Anyone have a link to watch later? Cut the cord recently
So, Soto travelled on short notice, during a pandemic to sit on the bench. Kind of surprised there.
I couldn’t pick most of this lineup out of a lineup. I’m a bad MLS fan nowadays
He's putting Lletget on top again? After it was so terrible the last time. Why?
Lletget in midfield where he belongs.
I’m not surprised but it’s stupid. Anything less than 45 minutes and it’s a slap in the face.
I could see Arriola getting something in this game. Gonna be a lot of loose balls for him to run after.
Araujo's doing great so far.
Yes he is.
Wow. Everyone yells at Gregg for playing players out of position, so he puts Soto in his club position, and now everyone is complaining
ES is playing a high line. Easy to beat when they gave us time on the ball.
Ariiola scores a very neat goal...surrounded by at least 4 defenders...
Akinola looks like a young Altidore but better skilled
Mueller killing it out there. 2-0. Goal & assist already. Good patience, thought speed, & touches.
El Salvador doesn't look up to this. And the US looks like they want to attack.
I always liked Chris Mueller. I think he has a chance to be in the 23
Chris Mueller just rubs it in...2-0...First goal in USMNT uniform?
This could get ugly.
This is good to see. We so often struggle to open up space against poor teams.
This MLS bunch much more aggressive and athletic than last cycle's MLS bunch.
