With the third of three June World Cup qualifiers just a day away for the U.S. Men’s National Team, The SBI Show’s latest episode takes a look at the U.S./Honduras match, among other hot topics.

Episode 42 of The SBI Show features a closer look at Tuesday’s qualifier, as co-host Garrett Cleverly and I discuss the current injury situation with Honduras, and the lineup options for Jurgen Klinsmann ahead of the match at Rio Tinto Stadium.

We also discuss MLS Week 16, including the Columbus Crew’s upset of Montreal, and the Portland Timber’s statement victory against FC Dallas.

Other topics discussed include Bob Bradley leading Egypt to the verge of qualifying for the World Cup, to the Confederations Cup. We also have our latest SBI Show Q&A, and announce the winner of our recent SBI Show Contest.

  1. I believe that most people would think that hiring Klinsmann as the new coach was a step in the right direction for the team. Despite some early struggles do you think that our team is now entering a stage where we understand his system based off of these recent results? And i’ve been trying to figure out whether it is our players getting more comfortable with Jurgen’s style, giving credit to our success to him for molding our team, or is that our players have been just getting better based off of their experiences from their club teams, giving credit to the Dempsey’s season at tottenham, Altidore’s at AZ, etc. Curious what yall think. Side note, Tahiti showing up for the Nigeria game wearing red collared shirts with white flowers on them…too funny.

  2. Great show as usual. I guess I’ll have to make an iTunes account to give reviews and participate in the contests…

  3. I hope some respect is shown to Tahiti in the next show! They scored a goal, and could have scored more. They were only outshot 17-10. I bet no one had them getting off 10 shots. They really tried to go forward. This was nothing like watching similarly amateur sides like San Marino, who just park the bus and barely get off 10 shots in an entire qualifying campaign.

    Respect to Tahiti. They are a FUN story and I look forward to their next 2 games!

    • Yeah I Just listened to this podcast after the game, good call Garrett. Great goal Tahiti! Those guys played with heart, awesome story even if they don’t score another goal

  4. I know its off topic but there isnt a match thread for today, did anyone else see the reaction from Tahiti after they scored? Talk about sheer joy

  5. Gotta agree.

    Sense says: keep Cam in the mid to see where this can go and to protect JJ (concussions are nothing to mess around with)

    and to put Castillo in at LB. He has earned it and needs a real look. I heard from ESPN that he has been performing well in camp this week so I expect he will get the start.

  6. Great show! My family is in Arizona (lived there fore years before moving to Louisville, KY), so I’m with you Garrett – it’s definitely the West Coast.

  7. Ives, I’m with you, we need to see a bigger sample size of Cameron in the mid. From the stands and on tv, he looked stellar after a nervy start against Panama. The other reason to leave Jones out that I haven’t heard yet; more rest from his concussion. Why jeopardize his health at all at this point?

    Again, great show guys! Also, thanks for the Seattle love last week! 🙂
