USMNT vs. Cuba: SBI Match Night Commentary

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Men’s National Team takes on Cuba tonight (7:30 p.m., FS1) in the opening match of its Concacaf Nations League campaign at Audi Field.

The Americans enter on a three-match winless skid as they continue to work on the evolution of their playing system under head coach Gregg Berhalter. September’s 3-0 loss to Mexico was a low point, but a subsequent 1-1 draw with Uruguay offered some sense of optimism.

October’s Nations League matches offer Berhalter and his team a chance to continue improving on the style of play, with the Cuba match presenting a good opportunity to show off the progress Berhalter believes has been made.

Here’s the lineup facing Cuba:

  1. Good god. The bullshit about Roldan never ends does it? Guy just had the ball completely alone on the left wing w 4 us players in the box and two Cuba players down injured and somehow shanked a “cross” over the goal. Nothing but excuses from the commentary team of course…. he’s got a “great attitude”

  2. Sub CP, Mckennie and sargent at halftime no point risking injury and pull Miazga and play with 10 men

    • Yeah gotta agree. At this point it’s mission accomplished as far as sharpness and confidence building for the A group. Cuba will get frustrated and that’s when bad things happen in concacaf. Looks like Pulisic still wants his goal but 90 does seem pointless in a blowout this bad

  3. getting in the gaps between the wingbacks and CBs for Cuba. McKennie literally unmarkerd when he comes forward into those gaps
