USMNT No. 9 Breakdown: The U.S. Strikers With The Best Chances Of Playing In Qatar

Haji Wright was only given 119 minutes for the USMNT across four games this June and it appears he won’t get anymore anytime soon. Wright featured in the first half of Tuesday’s mud-fest against El Salvador and after the game USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said he wasn’t pleased with what he saw.

Corner Kick Routine Asks A Lot Of One Man, But He's Up For The Challenge

I don't think the game has a more audacious plan of action than the corner kick that's aimed at — rather than the forest of limbs and heads gathered in the area — a solitary loner stationed outside the box.

The ploy requires perfection on the delivery. If it's inaccurate, the opponent wins possession and the counterattack is on. If it's accurate but without pace, the opponent rushes out, closes down the shot and the counterattack is on.

Three Players Who Impressed And Two Who Simply Didn’t Have It Against Grenada

Good news guys, the USMNT is capable of beating Grenada. It’s hard to take too much away from the U.S. defeating Grenada 5-0 in the Concacaf Nations League on Friday, but we have a couple players to highlight for the USMNT. 

Head coach Gregg Berhalter put out the B-team for the USMNT, reasonably so, and fans got to see some fringe players try to prove their worth. Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams didn’t even dress for the team Friday night to give you an idea of how important this game was.
