Best potential XI for USMNT’s Concacaf Nations League semifinal vs. Mexico in one month

The United States men’s national is set to face bitter rival Mexico in a month’s time in the Concacaf Nations League semifinal at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. With a litany of injuries to the team we felt that a potential USMNT starting XI vs Mexico was necessary.

Today Leeds fans learned that Weston McKennie can throw a ball over them mountains

There were a few bright spots for Major Leeds Soccer as they only lost 2-1 to Manchester City on Saturday and gave the league leaders a late scare. One of the rare positive moments from the game was the Weston McKennie long throw strategy.

If you support the United States men’s national team then you know all about McKennie’s throw-in abilities. For some reason Leeds have rarely asked the American to utilize his skills.

New Leeds manager Sam Allardyce was all over it and asked McKennie to huck a ball into City’s box in the 10th minute.

AC Milan forward Olivier Giroud said that USMNT star Christian Pulisic was a “happy boy” at Chelsea when they played together, compared the American to Eden Hazard and claimed he’d be welcomed in Milan.

Giroud made a guest appearance on the CBS Sports GOLAZO! Network on Thursday and shared his experiences of playing with Pulisic. The 36-year-old Frenchman and Pulisic played together for two seasons at Chelsea in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 campaigns, winning the UEFA Champions League in the process.

Here’s what Giroud had to say about Captain America.

Only one man can save Major Leeds Soccer from relegation and that man is Big Sam

Relegation-threatened Leeds United have sacked manager Javi Gracia and appointed veteran coach Sam Allardyce until the end of the season, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

With four games left, only a superior goal difference is keeping 17th-placed Leeds out of the relegation zone after taking only one point from their last five games.

Allardyce will be the club's third coach this season after American Jesse Marsch was sacked in February.

Oh, you guys! Borussia Dortmund may have wasted their golden chance to win the Bundesliga

Stop hurting Brenden! Ream and Robinson both foul Aaronson as Fulham win EPL Super Bowl

Fulham defeated Leeds United 2-1 on Saturday in the highly anticipated USMNT showdown between the duos of Weston McKennie and Brenden Aaronson vs. Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson.

The American quartet sat down for a humorous interview ahead of Saturday’s game with the four players laughing and joking around.

For Saturday's 90 minutes the love was lost as the two duos fought for three points at Craven Cottage.

The Brenden Aaronson Weston McKennie golf story was the funniest highlight of a 17-minute interview that Men in Blazers did with the Leeds duo and Fulham’s American pair of Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson.

Leeds United and Fulham are America’s favorite Premier League teams as both have multiple U.S. players on the roster. This Saturday the two clubs face off, brutally early at 7:30 a.m. ET, and fans got to see a four-player interview with the Americans.

During the interview Aaronson was asked if he’d ever seen McKennie lost for words. Then came the golf story.

A dream come true! 16-year-old makes her professional debut and scores bicycle kick

In doing it, she also became the youngest player ever to score in Liga MX Femenil.
