The SBI Show: Episode 361 (Recapping the USMNT win vs. Iran, Mexico’s demise, and more)


(UPDATE – The wrong audio file for Episode 361 was uploaded initially, but it has since been replaced by the correct file, which includes all of the post-match interviews. The correct episode is 31 minutes long, so if the version you have is 27 minutes long then that is not the updated version.)

The U.S. men’s national team faced a do-or-die World Cup clash on Tuesday against Iran and delivered a victory and gusty performance to cap an impressive run through the tournament group stage and the latest episode of The SBI Show runs down all the post-match reactions.

Episode 361 digs into the 1-0 victory over Iran, and we hear from all the key figures from the match, including Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams, Yunus Musah, Sergiño Dest, Tim Ream, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Gregg Berhalter.

We also hear from Christian Pulisic with an update after the injury he suffered against Iran, and Episode 361 also touches on the USMNT’s next match, in the World Cup Round of 16 against the Netherlands.

  1. I agree with what you said about World Cup Qualifying and Concacaf; but regarding GB, not buying it at all. He’s a clown. HA!
    On another note, I think the US has a good chance of defeating the Netherlands. Ecuador, in my opinion, played better than the Netherlands and probably should have won at game instead of drawing. I am sure the staff will be going over that game and the other games as well to see how the US can exploit the Netherlands’s weaknesses. They barely beat Wales in the Nations league 3-2 and 2-1, so I think this game is winnable.

    • for a van gaal team this holland is a 352 odd duck. they remind me of atleti on a bad day when all they do is hit crosses. get it wide, whack it in. once a while over the top. no ajax/barca style ground ball play and long builds. most of their danger is height and aerial and the other bit is some vertical speed. i was underwhelmed. mark your strikers and don’t get beat over the top. get a couple goals. i have seen much scarier including japan.

    • At this point,given what we’ve seen,everyone is competitive

      We can beat Holland. Which means probably, a date with Argentina.

      And depending on how well they hold up, meaning healthwise, Argentina might well be doable.

      France and Brazil are looking like the only unbeatable teams here.

  2. just picking this thread to ask why would you mess with format after this world cup. at this moment in time 32 is just right. with limited exceptions it’s going down to the final games with insane intensities. (you can’t help it if the host team spends all their money bribing voters and not enough on the soccer team.). when you have found the sweet spot, sit there.
