USA St Vincent Logo Panels

Three, potentially four, CONCACAF members will represent the region in Russia during the 2018 World Cup, and the U.S. Men’s National Team kicks off its campaign to reach that tournament tonight.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s men do battle with St. Vincent and the Grenadines in the team’s opening CONCACAF qualifying match at Busch Stadium in St. Louis (7 p.m., ESPN 2).

For the USMNT, the World Cup qualifying campaign serves as a chance to put struggles behind them. Brad Guzan will lead the charge for the U.S. in goal tonight, while Michael Bradley will wear the captain’s armband.

On the other side of the ball, St. Vincent and the Grenadines entered CONCACAF qualifying during the region’s second round of competition and defeated Guyana and Aruba along the way to the fourth round. The Caribbean nation can be difficult to deal with on the counterattack, and striker Tevin Slater will will be the one causing problems for the U.S. back line. Slater has scored five, a CONCACAF World Cup qualifying high, of his team’s nine total goals.

    • You are terribly uninformed. Let me ‘splain it to you. Everyone here says Klinsmann is a terrible coach and one of the main reasons is that he plays players in the wrong positions. One of those “wrong positions” is putting Yedlin into midfield and Fabian Johnson at RB. Everybody says that is wrong and Kolinsmann must have read the posts here and wised up because tonight he played Yedlin at RB and Fabian Johnson at midfield, LIKE IT SHOULD BE. Since this is right and the other way is wrong, it is not possible that Yedlin is at fault, because our players screw up only because Klinsmann plays them in the wrong position and Yedlin was in the RIGHT position. Thus, it must be the fault of someone playing in the WRONG position. Now do you understand?

      • How is that being misinformed? Yedlin showed the player inside without having help on the a free shot on goal to him. But I guess that means I need splainin!

    • Yeah, Mexico also beat a semi pro like team as the first Salvadorian side has been punished. Mexico beat a bunch of under 23’s and domestic players.

    • Yep. Scored on first by a country that seems to be named after a hospital and a margarita ingredient. Ugly defense and all the fault of Klinsmann. Disgraceful.

  1. This is the game that will put Klinsmann back up on the pedestal. The US wins comfortably and Klinsmann is the genius again (unless of course St. Vincent and the Grenadines are actually two different nations, and we’ll be playing against two teams, 22 players, at once).
