USMNT vs. Chile: Live Commentary


The U.S. Men’s National Team concludes its March schedule on Tuesday night against Conmebol side Chile.

Gregg Berhalter will look to make it four wins from four as USMNT head coach after a recent 1-0 win over Ecuador. Gyasi Zardes scored the lone goal in last Thursday’s friendly in Orlando which saw two players injured. Weston McKennie suffered ruptured ankle ligaments while Wil Trapp left the match with a left leg contusion.

Berhalter confirmed Ethan Horvath will get the start in goal on Tuesday while other players could see the starting XI via rotation. Christian Pulisic, Paul Arriola, and Tim Ream all get the starting nod while Omar Gonzalez, DeAndre Yedlin, and Michael Bradley are come into the squad.

Chile are coming off a loss to Mexico in Tata Martino’s debut as El Tri boss. With Alexis Sanchez unable to participate in this camp due to injury, the Chileans will rely on the play of midfielders Arturo Vidal and Charles Aranguiz.

  1. FT: USMNT 1 – Chile 1. Pulisic and Opazo trade goals in a 1-1 draw in Houston. A good test for the U.S. who honestly were outplayed by the Chileans. Good showing from players like Roldan, Zardes, Pulisic, and Miazga. A lot to learn and a lot to take in. We will see if this group remains come June. Thanks for joining!

  2. HT: USMNT 1 – Chile 1. An eventful first half has seen the teams trade goals in the opening ten minutes. Christian Pulisic scored on Gyasi Zardes’ assist while Oscar Opazo equalized five minutes later. Pulisic left due to a reported right quadriceps injury. More to come from Houston.

  3. It’s hard to stomach Bradley ands Gonzales starting. What message does this send about how Berhalter rates MB? Will Trapp has steadily been getting more playing time for the Nats and had is best performance yet against Ecuador, but is still dropped in favor of the Philosopher Jogger. This would have been a good test for Trapp to play against a quality opponent that will be attacking and putting pressure on the US. If he were being honest, Berhalter would just make Bradley captain.

    • Danny it’s the same ol’ same ol’…..I give up. I guess we just have to accept it, that Bradley will be in the USMNT midfield regardless (and while he is there, we will not win games against tough opponents)
