USMNT vs. Bolivia: Live Commentary


For the third time in 2018, the U.S. Men’s National Team is set for friendly action.

The U.S. faces off with CONMEBOL representative Bolivia at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pa. on Monday. This will be the first action for the USMNT since a 1-0 friendly win over Paraguay back in March. Youth is the highlight of Dave Sarachan’s roster this time around, with the average age of the 23-man squad being 22 years old.

Eric Lichaj captains the USMNT for the first time in his career, while Antonee Robinson, Alex Bono, Erik Palmer-Brown and Josh Sargent are each earning their first caps. Christian Pulisic headlines the starting XI, while Tim Weah and Weston McKennie also get the nod.

The SBI Staff will be offering updates and analysis in the comments section below, so feel free to follow along, and as always, please feel free to share your own thoughts and opinions below.

Enjoy the action.


  1. Full time from Talen Energy Stadium as the youthful USMNT takes down Bolivia 3-0. Walker Zimmermann, Josh Sargent, and Timothy Weah all net their first senior goals for the Stars and Stripes. Eric Lichaj and Antonee Robinson both were solid at their respective positions, while Weston McKennie was huge as well. Expect some more changes coming with trips to Ireland and France coming in the next two weeks. A lot of positives to take from this match, the question is whether the U.S. can build from this going forward. We shall see.

  2. Love WKs physicality. Clearly the MX guys are a step behind everyone else… not much real competition there, doesn’t really translate to the international game. Lichaj meh, won’t be relevant next cycle. Robinson has some potential. Just goes to show how poor of a job Bruce did at the end of the day.
