I know we have quite a few followers of the USMNT here. Gold Cup just right around the corner. USMNT has been draw into a real who's who of international football: Panama, Nicaragua and Martinique. Regardless, it's a major tournament and a great chance to see some new faces into the national team that have a real chance to break into the "A" team next summer.
We beat Ghana 2-1 today through Dom Dwyer and Kellyn Acosta's first international goals. I've been waiting for Dwyer to put on a US shirt for awhile. I know some have mixed opinion about dual nationals, but can't be anything but happy for him. Could tell what it meant to the lad the moment he scored it. So glad to have him in the national team fold now, and unless he's injured, I highly doubt he would be left off the 23 man roster for Russia.
The Gold Cup is somewhat silly through the group stage. Be interested to see how the likes of Dwyer, Acosta, and Kenny Saief perform in the knockouts. Although it's unlikely to see the big names come back for the knockouts, unless it's the MLSers, should be an interesting look nonetheless!
