USMNT: Yanks Fight For Draw In Azteca: Recap and Player Ratings

13 Juin 2017

Many more will be basking in the glory of four crucial World Cup Qualifying points in a four day span, capped off by a 1-1 draw with their bitter rivals at Estadio Azteca. "So whatever has gotten us there, whatever occasion or bonding that's led to a change, that's a positive, and certainly Bruce has to receive a lot of credit".

Quite a turnaround since November, when a 2-1 home loss to Mexico and a 4-0 wipeout in Costa Rica caused the U.S. Soccer Federation to fire coach Jurgen Klinsmann and bring back Arena, the U.S. coach from 1998-2006.

At the start of camp - Arena's first with an nearly full-strength roster - the team worked on shape and tactics for both matches.

Today, I'm hoping we can bury the hatchet now that you are in your latest role as US Men's National Team manager. The Americans are 2-2-2 with four qualifying matches remaining.

"Surprised? No", Bradley said, according to Speaking in Azteca's tunnel on Monday night, Bradley diagnosed what had gone wrong. 'Bruce came in and has done a really good job of little by little making sure we get back to who we are.

"It's somewhat I think similar to club play in Major League Soccer, where you travel at times great distances in a short period of time and play two games", Arena said.

'Obviously, they had a lot of the ball but tactically the game went the way we expected and the way we wanted, ' Bradley said.

The United States will return to play on July 1st in an global friendly against Ghana at the Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Renschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut.

La République en marche! décroche une victoire décisive au 1er tour
En fin de soirée électorale, quatre députés seulement (dont deux pro-Macron) avaient été élus au premier tour , contre 36 en 2012. La rivalité entre les deux formations a toutefois abouti dans plusieurs circonscriptions à leur élimination au second tour.

He wouldn't try to explain how he created confidence.

Attempting to volley a bouncing ball off that found it's way to his midfield position, the American captain made an absolutely brilliant strike that got around the keeper but finished its journey at the right post rather than the back of the net. The US are third on eight points.

"We've grown", goalkeeper Tim Howard said.

Not only did they earn a point in a place that has been a notoriously hard venue for visitors, but they remained unbeaten on the year, took another big step up the qualifying ladder and positioned themselves to win a spot in an eighth consecutive World Cup when the CONCACAF tournament resumes in September.

The Americans will host Costa Rica on September 1 and visit Honduras four days later.

When the triple whistles blew to signal the end of the match, the US side was visibly (and deservedly) thrilled with the result. The hexagonal concludes with matches October 6 against Panama at Orlando, Florida, and at Trinidad on October 10.

Should its defense continue to improve, it could be a World Cup-clinching renovation on its part, but four wins from four will be the goal set in its mind for the rest of qualification, meaning goals will be needed in good number as well.

ALL'S WELL: After so many decades of heartbreak at the hulking venue, the U.S. can be proud to have taken a victory and two draws from their last three visits to Azteca. "This is critical. I've tried to provide the environment that I think is right for a national team program".
