Sunday was a solid day for two centerbacks looking to lock down a more regular role with the U.S. Men’s National Team.
Both Omar Gonzalez and Matt Miazga started and played 90 minutes for their respective clubs on Sunday. Gonzalez went the distance for Liga MX side Pachuca in a 2-1 win over Chivas de Guadalajara, while Miazga’s effort came in Vitesse’s 1-1 draw with NEC Nijmegen.
