It was a pity that the USMNT couldn’t build the momentum it created. Appetizing 2-0 victory Against Mexico On Friday. It was a vibe coach Gregg Berhalter picked up in the locker room after the match, and unhappiness was seen on the player’s face.
Playing in a non-ideal field and in a humid environment, the United States was sluggish and rarely threatened after the first 20 minutes of the game. The combination play was lacking, the touch was heavy, and the team seemed to have been gassed before the final whistle blew.
But for Barholter, disappointment is not a takeaway.
“We are not looking at it as a disappointing result. We are looking at it as a good result,” he said. “It’s good to be away from home at any time, it’s a CONCACAF qualifying and I want to clarify that. I wanted more, so I think it’s perfectly natural for everyone to bow down. But this is definitely a point to give way. “
Of course, it’s a half-perfect approach to glass. Through eight World Cup qualifying games America We’re on the right track to punch tickets Qatar 2022. With three automatic qualifying spots, Roadpoint has ensured that the United States will be first or second in the standings with two three-match windows remaining.
“That was the purpose of our windows,” Barholter said.
Absence Weston McKennie It was felt during the match in the middle of the midfield due to the accumulation of yellow cards.Partnership with him Tyler Adams When Yunus Musah It was a revelation for the USMNT and the 19 year old Gianluca Busio Playing instead, the team didn’t have almost the same bite in the middle of the park. Barholter said he was also playing with streptococcal pharyngitis.This is definitely in 66 minutes Kelly Acosta..
Continue CanadaThe United States (15 points), which defeated Mexico 2-1 on Tuesday night, is second and is one point behind its northern neighbor.With Mexico Panama Panama wins by erasing the 1-0 half-time deficit and then draws in 3rd place (14 points) El salvador 2-1. It was Panama’s second comeback victory in this window.
After missing Russia In 2018, Barholter’s stated purpose is a perfectly rational stance, even if it suggests a lack of ambition. What it doesn’t mention is that you should be lucky that the United States was able to score points at Kingston.
Last month in Austin, Texas, it was the United States that struggled against Jamaica due to a shortage of VARs (Video Assistant Referees) in the CONCACAF qualifying round. There were two challenges that caused yellow cards in the game, and further consideration could easily turn them red. But that didn’t take into account the final result, and the United States scored two second half goals to win 2-0.
The roles have been reversed in this game, but the main difference is that the lack of VAR may have sacrificed Jamaica’s victory. Damion Lowe Only canceled due to an obvious foul on Rowe, he headed for what appeared to be a go-a-head goal in the 84th minute.The replay showed minimal contact between him and the US defender Walker Zimmerman When two people fly the ball and compete for the position.
“I don’t want to talk about that,” said Jamaican director Theodore Whitmore. “I think the officials are there to do their job. From the bystanders, I can sit and say anything …. I’m not the one who complains about the position.”
Personally, Whitmore has the right to steam. Jamaica started the day five points behind Panama. If you are two points behind in the remaining six games, you will reach the playoff match and win the World Cup bid for the first time since 1998, which could be the second difference. Jamaica has the talent to reach that level, Michail AntonioA brilliant strike from over 30 yards defeated the USMNT goalkeeper Jack Stephen In 22 minutes.
Born in England West Ham United The forward qualified to play in Jamaica this year after receiving his passport. 31 years old was called by multiple England It was a team of the youth national team in the past, but it was never taken up. He is currently scoring in both reggae boys games in this window.
“It’s really one of those goals you just look back and clap your hands on,’amazing goals, amazing personal efforts’, and you can’t do much about it,” Barholter said. Said.
Before Antonio’s goal, the United States looked like a team in Cincinnati ready to resume from where it left off on Friday night.The team dominated ownership, created several dangerous attack sequences, and led an incredible target from 1-0. Timothy WeahThe appearance in the last three games has shown the impressive depth of attack on the pool.
“When I am [with the national team] It feels great, “Wear said. We play very well together. We knew each other for a long time. So it’s really really great to be back here. “
After playing against Mexico for 90 minutes, Ware slowed down in the middle of the second half and was replaced by: Christian Pulisic, Continues to work to get back to fitness. Berholter raised the possibility that Prisitch would start on Monday, but admitted that Tuesday was a bit of gamemanship on his part to complicate Jamaica’s game planning process. After scoring with his first touch on Mexico, Pulisic’s impact on Jamaica was minimal.
The United States will resume World Cup qualifying at home with El Salvador on January 27th. Canada (January 30th) and home games Honduras.. Before that, we will have a friendly match with Bosnia and Herzegovina on December 18th.
