Idk if I like Carleton at the middle. Maybe this line up is more experimental no?

He hasn't been able to find the game, and the few times he has found the ball it's been poor decisions. Goslin looks good spraying balls left and right while also occupying the bowl. My guess would be to shift Carleton wide for Akindola and put in a second true forward type for when the ball goes wide

Carleton has been our best player so far. He is a Baller.

He's starting to find some more space now that India is down 2 goals

yea Carleton is better suited for the wing. Carleton is a machete, Acosta is a swiss army knife.

Akinola struggled. It was the right sub to make.

For awhile there FErri was looking shaky too.

It's pretty interesting when teams back off how it makes your midfield look.

We get to see some of that tonight... maybe against Panama. They just have to get a tie right? In the standings?

They're going to be packed and coiled up.

Hopefully the Feilhaber experiment holds up. I would have went with Nguyen.

Exciting game.

I thought that Carleton and Acosta were the best players on the field. I like Durkin's confidence. Ferri had a mixed game and Akinola wasn't really effective.

I am concerned about our back 4. I saw a little of Ghana's play, their attackers are fast, big, and strong. I don't see us winning that game with our weak, small back 4.

Our defensive midfielder(s) are really going to have to work extra hard providing double/triple cover for their fast attackers. Andrew Carleton is going to have to help out in the defense quite a bit from his left wing position. This is going to be a tense game of Ghana getting a lot of chances that we need to close down.

I know Weah played a good game, but having Weah and Sargent out there at same time, we really could do well with having an extra defensive midfielder out there instead and then later in the game bring Weah on.

I would go 4-2-3-1

------Sargent-------
Carleton--Acosta---Reyes OR Weah (whoever can play better defense,Reyes maybe)
-----Goslin--Vassilev
Gloster-Sands-Durkin-Lindsey
------Garces

Not sure the big worry here. Just like us... Ghana and Colombia arent good at defense either. In fact if we can pick our spots right we can punish them for being reckless. This will be a high scoring game like the 4-3 vs Mexico
