  1. Incredible we have 3 different players for different teams in the same Champions League Group. As USMNT fans when could we have ever say that? Exciting times.

  2. I’m actually kind of disappointed by this. I was hoping for each of them to be drawn against some European heavyweights that didn’t include…each other, so that I’d have a clear rooting interest in some of the best matches in Europe this season, and so that they would not run the risk of knocking each other out prior to the knockout stages.
