USA path to the World Cup Final in 2022

As far fetched as it may seem, there is a USA path to the World Cup Final in 2022. Come to think, there are a handful of potential landing spots depending on how the Group stage plays out. By no means is the U.S. expected to reach the Final. Even then, the USMNT is certainly on the […]

Uruguay presents USMNT opportunity to test World Cup strength

Uruguay presents an interesting opportunity for the USMNT. After all, the U.S. has little to no familiarity with frequent World Cup teams outside CONCACAF. That's not to take anything away from Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica. Clearly, these are strong sides with talented players. Instead, it is simply a style of play. Nations in South […]
