Dempsey played his first game in ages...30 mins in a preseason warm up.

Hope his recovery goes well....holding out hope he can come off the bench for US again one day

Really hope so, too. One of the few 'gritty' American players with technical skill enough to play a genuine striker.

Big game tonight.

Five or six guys out through injury or suspension.

Going to be a tough one



Anyone know if it's televised?

We may have finally found the missing magic man at number 10.

I hope they go and attack again right from the start tonight.....I'm tired of watching this team go on the road and go into a shell.

it will be very interesting to see what happens now that Jones is back. Does Arena go back to the Jones/Bradley combo in the middle? I hope not. Jones has played on the Left Wing before but mainly in a 4-3-3 formation. I just don't want to see CP shifted out wide.


I think we see Run DMB at LB today

Played well in the second half, crappy in the first

Ive long been a Bradley supporter but he really needs to go. The rest of the attack is actually starting to develop rhythm and movement. He killsit every time. And his hustle is gone.

Anybody catch the City game last night? They played with 10 men for 45 minutes and with 9 for (I think) 25 minutes...and still finished with a point. Crowd was nuts on TV.

I flipped it on at the very end. Saw replays of both reds. There's no way that ref didn't have his game check riding on Chicago.

That was possibly the worst red card I have ever seen. That referee should be done for the season for that botched call on a national game.

Alright this kid is going to pass John O'Brien as my all time favorite USMNT player


7 goals, 5 assists in 15 games

As an 18 year old MIDFIELDER!!!




(I hate the sub that takes us down to 1 forward as the game opens up...you never know goal differential might come into play down the road)

I was late getting in front of my TV. As surprised as I was to find us up 1-0, I was shocked to see it was Bradley that scored.

Should be 2-0 right now. Shame Wood couldn't bury connect. That was a hell of a counterpunch by Mexico.

Man I don't understand the lineup we used but a draw is a good result there

Bruce has righted the ship since he took over.

We aren't going to get better technically under his watch but we are scrappy again. It's nice to see that back

Report: 17 deaths and other labor abuses at World Cup stadiums in Russia

At least 17 construction workers have died and many others have faced exploitation and labor abuses while building stadiums for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, according to a report by Human Rights Watch.

The report also said that FIFA, soccer's corruption-plagued governing body, lacked transparency and had failed to demonstrate that its monitoring system had effectively identified, prevented and corrected stadium labor conditions.
.
.
.
At least 70 workers died during construction for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia; 13 before the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro; six before the 2008 Olympics in Beijing; and zero during the building of the Olympic Park at the 2012 Olympics in London, according to trade union officials and news accounts.

Ambet Yuson, the general secretary of the trade union, said Tuesday that it was concerned the death toll in Russia would rise as laborers work from increasing heights and rush to complete construction ahead of the World Cup.

"It should be a wake-up call," Yuson said in a telephone interview from Geneva. "They are coming from the experience in Sochi. They should learn from that. If you go back to Sochi, most of the accidents and fatalities happened toward the end of construction. They should know better by this time."

17 is nothing. We should get a death count pool going for once the World Cup starts.

anyone watching the gold cup?

haven't been too impressed with many of these younger/newer guys.

Cool to see Dwyer get some looks...he faired well. Hopefully will see more.

I have always liked Lichaj and I'm glad he is getting his shot and taking advantage of it.

I will say that I am loving Donovan in the booth. But let's be real, any US team without Pusilic is basically the Dream Team without MJ.

Oh and Dempsey still hasn't lost it.

If there isn't a totally different team that shows up tonight, we could lose by a lot more.

First 30 minutes will be crucial. Can we possess the ball and generate chances without giving up counterattacks? Maybe....

They looked good tonight. Didn't realize CR was short handed


I'm beginning to like Acosta and Nagbe a lot.

Arriola not so much

And I continue to hate Zusi in the back.

Cool to see Dempsey tie Donovan

Yeah Zusi at RB is a defensive liability. Great to see a positive performance from most everybody tonight. Nice win and hopefully a precursor to a Gold Cup victory.
