Safe to say there is A LOT more to this story. If they had a game or two with the new coach this might not be that big of a deal, but they open with Portugal. That can't be good.


Dramarama.
And cr7 is desperate for his WC medal.

USA to cohost wc 2026 w MEX and CAN! Woo! Take that Morocco!

Anyone else listen to the American Fiasco pod reviewing the 94 - 98 WC period for the USMNT --also addressing soccer in America? 12 1/2hr parts. Lots of interview w the players and managment and announcers w live recaps. I enjoyed it w sad nostalgia. Heady times.

Iran sitting top of the table ahead of ESP and POR.

That was fun. Im glad they put on the show everybody wanted. Although Degea lost that game for ESP.

DeGea's rep taking a huge hit

Might put a cramp in his Real Madrid future

CR7 willing things out there

That freekick!

Sound.

I just feel Id like to listen to them speaking Spanish w that enthusiasm. The vocab is good and theyre funny. The cadence of their delivery en ingles is just an acquired taste I guess.

¡El Trí para mí!
As a bitter CONCACAF rival do we acquiesce and follow MEX? Or anyone else but MEX?
The news heads and (of course) FOXsports is all in.
