USMNT route Trinidad & Tobago to advance to the HEX. Diaz and Zimmerman make MLS Team of the Week thanks to last weekend’s heroics.

Open Cup Final is less than a week away folks. Get your tickets and fill the stadium!
Both very deserving this week, but sad that Ulloa didn’t get any love.
A nice little look here into Pareja’s methods and attention to detail.

USMNT destroyed Trinidad & Tobago last night thanks to strong performances from Jozy Altidore, Christian Pulisic and Sacha Kljestan. USA will open the HEX in Columbus vs Mexico on Nov 11.
Lost in the qualifying matches last night was this story that broke that someone had allegedly offered cash to El Salvador’s soccer team to fix a match. Crazy stuff.
Regardless of whether you believed Hope Solo’s suspension/termination was deserved, the way US Soccer went about it was pretty awful. Bonus, Sports Night reference.
A good tactical breakdown of how Altidore and company finally broke through offensively to win the qualifying group.
