Copa América Centenario: A Uruguay Without Leaders

Copa América Centenario: A Uruguay Without Leaders

Tweet Jon Levy I started seriously following Uruguay just prior to the 2010 World Cup.

USA Look to Finish Copa America Preparations Strong vs Bolivia: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy USA vs. Bolivia: Your TYAC Preview Well wasn’t that a delightful flourish to cap a great American second half in that forgettable friendly versus Ecuador. That’s rhetorical; of course Nagbe’s match-winning goal off great work by Bobby Wood and DeAndre Yedlin was delightful. Easy to convey rhetorical in print; you can just […]

Playoffs!! Your USA vs. Colombia U23 Leg One Preview

Tweet Jon Levy Here they are, the most important US Soccer matches of the spring.

USA vs. Peru: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy USA v. Peru: Your TYAC Preview How did we get here? It’s a valid question, especially if we use the national team’s pride-inducing performance at the 2014 World Cup as our backdrop. No, it was never a slam dunk that the USMNT would win this summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, so the fact […]

USA vs. Cuba: The TYAC Preview

USA vs. Cuba: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy It has been a strange Gold Cup.  All three of the pre-tournament favorites: the United States, Mexico and World Cup quarterfinalist Costa Rica, could lodge complaints about their form and none appear to be runaway favorites heading into this weekend’s quarterfinals. Of the three, Mexico has perhaps played the most attractive soccer, […]

USA vs. Haiti: The TYAC Preview

USA vs. Haiti: The TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy The US began the 2015 Gold Cup with a grind-it-out win over an inspired Honduras, playing positive football in their first tournament setting fixture under manager Jorge Luis Pinto.
