Well said, it seems like we're not using our resources to scout players effectively. I mean we can't bring everybody but we can certainly identify the top 2-3 to target who can help/fit in to the team then go from there.

Still no traction here? I mean since we rebuilding with youths and have an important game in March this should be a no brainer...

Yeah we had some opportunities where we should've been more clinical and some passes/crosses in and around the penalty were woeful but we're building. We'll need to clean those up for the playoff game.

Scoring at least 3 unanswered goals against the US is a tall order, especially since our identity has been defensive in all our games since GC. Should Eve stick to his guns and aim for a moral victory (0-0 or 1-0 win) and keep playing his style to build the chemistry with the focus on the single elimination game? Or go all out in attack to try for the 3+ goals to give ourselves a chance of qualifying now?

Peong, to me it looked like he made contact with the ball but I knew the ref was going to give that 2nd yellow after how he gave the first one on a soft call. The first one reminded me of the red Rashford got in CL last week.

Goodluck tonight boys. I'm hoping everyone's fit and we can remain organized without becoming discombobulated as we seldom do against the US.Watching the scores of the last 3 games vs the US 6-0, 7-0 & 6-0 loses. If we can grind out a draw I would be over the moon.

Hopefully the guys are putting in extra personal training and getting their fitness levels in peak form especially after what happened this past July. That should be motivation to avoid a repeat of that disaster.

Yeah Dan spoke on it at halftime and said he's okay. I was concerned as well as they went to a commercial in the midst of everything with Dan was clearly terrified.
Shaka glad to hear you're okay and you're have some awareness as to what's going on. Everyone's happy to hear that! Hope you get back to your normal self soon!

Seeker 100%. Although Canada was the superior team, he had Nigeria well organized throughout the game and they had some luck on their side. Our women's program was going through that same learning phase as well.

He coached Nigeria to a draw against Canada. Ever since him and SH were terminated both programs significantly declined.

I didn't watch the game a 2nd time although they showed lt over late last night but I couldn't stomach going through that again. My honest opinion is the talent is there. I had US friends even texting me during the game saying how good Levi is, first time they really took note of him. Out of possession is where we have the most work to do and not surprising because that's the most challenging part of coaching and it's not an area you can spend two weeks on. In fact it should really be continuously taught from the grassroots level up. Seems like concentration in this department is lacking as we're giving up space too easily, can't be conceding 4 and 6 back to back. We looked like school boys at times.
I truly hope we can assess this area and adjust accordingly. If Eve stays on I hope he can bring an expert in off the ball organization and tactics, the head coach doesn't have to be a specialist in every area.
I like the talent pool and I believe with some structure we can be formidable.

According to sources close to the decision-making, Jones was the favoured choice for the position but made a U-turn at the last minute due to the short preparation time he would have faced in getting the team ready for the qualifiers in September.

Levi, our best player need the ball at his feet more. I think he should be wide where he'll be more dangerous going to goal. Playing on top with your back to goal can be a lonely place when you're not getting the right service. USA will play him the same way as JA did at center forward where he'll be marked tightly and will be on the ground most times the ball comes his way.
Maybe fitness is the issue but JJ and Molino has a certain level of confidence and poise on the ball that many other lack at the moment. Their maturity stood out in the 2nd half. We need to see more of that from the others.
It was disappointing to see us give up 3 goals that early in the game to our rival. We gave up too much space to our opponents and they took advantage of it.
Our backs are against the wall now, we have to win on Sunday and with the right attitude, discipline and mindset we can do it.
I don't like to blame the coach when I don't know what's going on in the camp but we need to get the right unit out there putting players in positions to play to their strengths.

Per tournament rules, the final roster will be submitted no later than June 14. A player may be replaced on the roster up to 24 hours prior a team’s first match of the group phase, as well as 24 hours after the completion of its group stage competition, in the case of injury. The replacement player must come from the 60-man preliminary rosters.
