The SBI Show: Episode 312 (Breaking down USMNT-Martinique, previewing USMNT-Canada, and more)


Episode 312 of The SBI Show breaks down the U.S. men’s national team’s 6-1 romp over Martinique in Concacaf Gold Cup action, and takes a closer look at the players who impressed the most.

Host Ives Galarcep also previews the big USMNT-Canada group finale on Sunday, with the Americans needing a win to top the group. We project the lineup we can see Gregg Berhalter deploying, and consider the possibility of Canada resting players with an eye towards the quarterfinal.

The show wraps up with a look at the latest in MLS, including Josef Martinez’s exile from Atlanta United training, and a look at the top matches in MLS this weekend.

  1. Ives, you should be more decisive in the announcement of your predictions about the line-up. You seem almost apologetic when you predict that a player will be picked instead of the current fan favorite. A lot of people who complain about Berhalter having “favorites” who aren’t deserving have blind spots themselves about certain players. When playing a better team like Canada it’s almost certain that Berhalter will go with more experienced players like Roldan and Acosta, as one example.

    • Sorry Gary, not sure how you gathered that I “seeming almost apologetic” about my predictions. I laid out what I think is likely to happen, the logic behind the likely picks, and which ones will probably leave people unhappy. Have a feeling you carried your own baggage into how you interpreted the breakdown, it didn’t need any more “decisiveness”.

      • Gary just do what I do and listen to podcasts on 1.5 speed then everything seems really “decisive”. Ives are you going to bring back the YouTube show?
