USMNT vs. Canada: The Pregame Tailgate


A month after a historic loss in Canada, the U.S. Men’s National Team is ready for some revenge, and ready to retake control of its Concacaf Nations League group.

The Americans face Canada in Orlando tonight (7;30 P.M., ESPN2) looking to avenge last month’s 2-0 loss in Toronto. Doing so won’t be easy against a Canadian side that only needs a draw to win the group.

Also makings things more difficult for the Americans is the absence of Christian Pulisic, who is out with a hip injury. The USMNT’s attacking hopes will rest in a cast that includes Jordan Morris, Weston McKennie and Sebastian Lletget.
