The #USMNT is getting ready for life without Jozy Altidore (down and out again, with yet another hamstring injury …) as Jurgen Klinsmann’s begins final prep activities for the Copa América Centenario.
Two things stick with me from this article. First, there is an interesting spin on last year’s Gold Cup. Second, some of the comments are enlightening.
… during the USA’s run to the Gold Cup semifinal.
That is classic. The author calls last summer’s debacle, a ‘run’ – when it should be listed as “… during last summer’s early and disappointing Gold Cup exit.” There is a difference; no reason to try and spin a better outcome.
From the comments section, there is an interesting debate centered on wondering (guessing) if Klinsmann will play our best players in their natural positions that they currently play for their club teams. How did it come to this?
As for me, I expect very little from this team, which is disappointing. Of course I am ever the cheerleader and will be expecting miracles. Something tells me I will be cussing and fussing instead.
