Caden on in the 66th minute

"They better keep playing that RB Arena update because that unbuilt stadium is the only positive thing about this soft-drink-selling, coached-by-a-dumbass, trading-good-players-for-shit, hopeless, retarded, club." - MetroFanatic

"It was always six weeks away. Every month, [Nick Sakiewicz] would say, we're six weeks away from the stadium. It's been the longest six weeks of my life." - Mike Petke

 

"I think every country can learn everything about each other. If the whole world can be together, it can be good." - Mathias Jorgensen

And just like that Cowell equalizes with a strong run and stronger finish

Owen Gowal, then a second equalizer

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

US crushed CAN on stats, not on goals.
Shots 22-6, on goal 10-3.
US complete 547/615 passes (89%), CAN 158/261 67%

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

But we should win the group. Anything else is a disappointment and setting us up for a more difficult matchup in the future

There is a difference between should and must.

I said we must beat Cuba to top the group, not advance to the next round

I am completely well aware three teams make it

But topping the group should give an easier path to qualification for the Olympics and U-20s

Perhaps "need to" would convey less urgency.
