Here are the latest USMNT headlines, and here are my reactions:
Soccer pundits and USMNT Twitter: “Stop calling up MLS players!”
Those same people: “That 2.Bundesliga player needs another chance!”
Irony aside, I’ve always been in favor of adding competition, and bringing back Julian Green would definitely mix things up in the midfield. Call him up and let’s see how he fits in!
Didn’t know if I should go with “People are the worst” or “Go figure. Twitter.”
Wish he was going to MLS, but I can understand his desire to stay in Europe and play top flight soccer (even though the Turskish Super League is second tier, at best). I hope Yedlin gets the chance to play in Champions League or Europa League. He is still in the mix for the USMNT roster, though depth at right back has grown.
We know, alright, we know!
Hopefully this call up is the nice send off Jozy deserves. Thanks for the memories, but for World Cup Qualifying, time to move on. Keep him in the mix for a depth piece on those Gold Cup squads. Still love seeing Jozy bag a few against Concacaf opponents.
Go get ‘em, Matt! Great back story and a bright future. With so many people (myself included) penciling in Zack Steffen as the de facto No. 1 GK for the US, I’m excited to see Turner compete for the No. 2 spot and, in a congested schedule for the USMNT in 2021, get his first start for the red, white, and blue.
What do you think about all the headlines and news from around the American soccer landscape?
