Well if there was any question before, it has been confirmed that Haji Wright at least not as someone who needs to hold the ball up. At the very least Sargent did that well.

If it is just a nut shot, I would expect Pulisic to play on Saturday. But that Sargent injury looked like at the very least meniscus damage.

Pulisic is gone to the hospital. Ruptured testicle? They're saying "Abdominal"...

Unless Dest was dead tired not sure why Moore over him this game, would've preferred more ball possession, and Wright was just baffling. And finally I can't believe I'm saying this but it wasn't even Gio I wanted brought in (killing a 1-0 game when he'd have no support isn't his game) it was Jordan Morris. If you bring Jordan Morris to a World Cup that's when he's useful! Dude works hard at least, Haji Wright did not...

Honestly with what they've shown just start Aaronson and play with multiple false 9's. If Pulisic is out, put Gio in that spot.

Hopefully Pulisic is ok. He's already posted something on IG from the hospital all fired up and swearing he'll be ready for Saturday.

That sounds like a variation of would you rather/truth or dare that you would play in high school.

“you score a goal that lets the United States advance in the World Cup, but you get hit in the nuts so hard that you have to go to the hospital when you do it.”

I still think they've got to find a way to get Reyna out there. Also maybe time to give Ferriera a chance.

Feels like leaving Pepi off was a big mistake.

Seems like Cristiano Ronaldo has signed to play for Al Nassr of the Saudi Arabian league for around $200million per year.

And seems like his old team Juventus is in serious trouble too. All their directors have resigned, apparently being investigated for false submissions to the Italian stock market and false accounting. They've been forced down the divisions before for dishonesty, this time they've added in serious illegal activities to get the Italian police involved too.

I would like to see Reyna come on as a impact sub but I don't know who I would take out of the starting lineup if everyone is still healthy. I guess Musah is the guy who have to cede his place to Gio. I am not convinced that Gio is fit enough to start especially if the U.S. is not dominating the ball. Ferriera should be given an opportunity for sure. I am not sure if leaving Pepi off was right or not. It would be nice to have another option I guess. He has been on fire in the Eredivisie the last couple of months but before that he went almost a year without getting a goal. We just don't have that top flight striker at this point. Hopefully one of the young guys develop into one.

The announcers on Telemundo tried their best to be objective but now they are just lashing out at everyone. The Saudis for time wasting, Michael Oliver for buying it, and the Argentinians for not scoring their chances.

While it would have been even sweeter if Mexico had gone out on fair play, it still feels almost as good as the US moving on.

Mrs. A was working in the next room while I was watching. And after the match she was shocked to find out we had one based on the exasperated noises I made throughout the second half.

FWIW, I was watching the Mexico vs KSA game and wondered how much players run in a game.

How Far Do Soccer Players Run In A Game? (+ Most Athletic Players) â—‹ 2022
Quote:
On average soccer players run 7 miles per game with a high of 10 miles. This can be as low as 2 miles for a goalkeeper. This is a combination of short sprints and longer distances.

1978 World Cup, Argentina missed a penalty in their third group game (Kempes missed against Italy). Argentina went on to win the World Cup.

1986 World Cup, Argentina missed a penalty in their third group game (Maradona missed against Bulgaria). Argentina went on to win the World Cup.

2022 World Cup, Argentina missed a penalty in their third group game.

It's written in the stars.

I felt bad for him, watching him after the match. However, he's fortunate he's not from Brazil...

Also, I didn't watch all 3 games, but Kevin de Bruyne seemed mostly invisible from what I watched. Which seems impossible.

What's the worst loss a team that has made it through to the final 16 ever had in group stage? Costa Rica has a decent shot to make it through despite a 7-0 loss. That's got to be unusual, right?

Damn, I've been watching the CR game and didn't even realize Japan scored twice. Since Fox is broadcasting both games, I don't understand why they can't show the other score in a box in the upper right corner instead of telling us we're watching the World Cup on Fox or FS1. Gee, thanks!

They think everyone's watching with a cell phone glued to their hands, and have other apps that tell them what they want to know about other matches. I've noticed the NFL telecasts no longer have crawls. It really feels like I've stepped back 20 years in time when I watch games now. Expecting alcohol and Oldsmobile ads any week now.
