USMNT vs. Chile: SBI Live Commentary




The U.S. Men’s National Team is set to kickoff what is sure to be a busy 2015 with a trip south to take on fellow World Cup participants Chile.

With the Gold Cup on the horizon this summer, Wednesday’s matchup will give head coach Jurgen Klinsmann a chance to get a closer look at a slew of new faces, as eight of the 23 players on the roster will enter Wednesday in search of their first cap. In addition to the  youth movement, Klinsmann’s roster includes nine veterans from the 2014 World Cup.

Chile, who will feature a domestic-based squad, have historically been tricky for the USMNT on South American soil, boasting a 4-1-1 historical record over the Americans in the southern continent.

  1. Poor management on the part of JK. WE ran out of gas condidering the fact most of OUR MEN are in preseason shape, he just failed to adjust IMHO. Also JJ as a center half is a work in progress. I just hope he not trying to fit a LARGE SQUARE peg in a small round hole

  2. Didn’t see much of the game. From what I saw this is typical Klinsaballic. Guys playing with ill defined role. I know the gains made in US soccer is in spite of him. This is what happened in Bayern Munich and continues with the US. He need to go. What the hell is Wondo doing on the pitch? Are we trying to build a Team for the future or holding on to the retreads. When USA makes a substitution the Team has a serious drop in the quality of play while most Teams appear to get better. Is this due to poor coaching?

  3. Chile was playing with a C team, only 2 players are substitutions to the main squad (goalkeeper and Rojas), that’s what all these players can hope to achieve, to be options for the main team. USA was playing with a B team with even 5 players that started in the WC and 3 others that played a few minutes there.
