It wasn’t pretty for the United States last night but they did get a result on the road.

While the US game is important and all, the jersey bracket rolls into the Elite Eight round where things are getting heated.
Time for some speculation on the entire season for this award since we’re off for another week from league play.

Late last night the rumor mill picked up a big one for RSL as they are set to promote their USL manager Mike Petke to the MLS gig.
Originally it was stated the injury wasn’t that bad but now it has gone completely the other way as Sebastian Lletget had surgery yesterday.
The injuries piled up yesterday afternoon across MLS and this was another big one.
I guess maybe this move will work out after all in Chicago. The people there seemed pretty happy about their new German addition.

But the narrative will be that the US is back on track here.
The game was very much how most CONCACAF games go on the road for a US team. Ugly. Frantic. But a draw is a very good result.
Again, ugly game, but in all seriousness Bruce Arena has brought this group back together in a way that we knew he could.
Last night’s clutch goal was another reason why we have to have Clint Dempsey on this run to the World Cup.
Let us just go ahead and say that we’re extremely lucky to have a player of this ability, playing at this high of a level, at his super young age.
