It was an eventful few days in the American soccer scene, with the U.S. Men’s National Team clinching first place in the CONCACAF Hexagonal Round of World Cup qualifying, and the Portland Timbers beating the Seattle Sounders in the marquee match-up in MLS.
Episode 79 of The SBI Show takes a look back at the USMNT’s win vs. Jamaica, and breaks down the performances of some of the key players. We also discuss the USA’s standing as kings of CONCACAF now after winning the 2013 Gold Cup and finishing tops in the HEX.
Co-host Garrett Cleverly and I also discuss the past weekend’s MLS action, including Portland’s 1-0 victory vs. the Seattle Sounders, a win that moved the Timbers into first place in the MLS Western Conference.
