Grinding In Glasgow: US and Scotland Play Forgettable Draw, Plus “Player Ratings”

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon History will report that on November 15, 2013, the United States and Scotland played a friendly match in Glasgow, Scotland and the match ended in a scoreless draw.

Finish Strong: US Look To Keep Momentum Going vs. Jamaica: TYAC Preview

Tweet Jon Levy  Editor’s Note: The original preview was written before the (now classic) late-minute additions made by Jurgen Klinsmann. We have updated the preview to reflect those changes.

USMNT Depth Chart Series, Part 3: Central Midfielders

Tweet Jon Levy Clint Dempsey, the best American soccer player in the world, has made his shocking move back to MLS, and he’ll soon be lighting the lamp in “America’s soccer city.” Okay, so that sentence is supposed to make our readership spike.

Tweet Neil W. Blackmon After a rout of woefully overmatched Belize and a game, but ultimately outgunned Cuba, the USMNT move on to more serious and daunting endeavors Tuesday night in Connecticut when they take on Costa Rica (FOX SOCCER, 8PM).

US-Mexico Gameday: Final Pre-Match Thoughts and Links

It’s a strange, brutally small-sample size world we live in as fans and journalists following the international game and so the narratives […]

Showdown at the Azteca: The US-Mexico Preview
