The USMNT closed door friendly against Tijuana was a 3-0 win. SBI says it was Tijuanas reserves so I don't think too much can be read into this but Bruin netted a brace and Parke also had one. Think Bruins gunna get a look against Canada or is there too much talent ahead of him. Wouldn't mind seeing him but Klinsmann has made it clear this is a preparation camp so I see EJ getting minutes seeing as he's a likely call up. Then you have Agudelo and Wondo to battle for spots (buddle injured). Any thoughts on Bruin or the game as a whole?

My thoughts on Bruin are this. He is a bigger, faster, and stronger version of Wondo with much more upside.

I know Klinsmann has been really impressed with Bruin. I would not be surprised to see Bruin get meaningful minutes against Canada. Probably a second half sub.

I have been a fan of Bruin since his rookie season with Houston. I will continue to say that if he wasn't injured in his rookie season; he would have won rookie of the year.

I will also add that Bruin is much better in a 4-4-2 system or 4-4-1-1 system.

Oh and Bruin should have been on the U-23 olympic team over Bunbury. But Mr. Porter played a bit of favoritism. Bruin, Agudelo, and Boyd were the ones scoring goals in friendlies not Bunbury.

Another American will spend the upcoming season in Denmark after Mike Lansing signed with Vejle BK.
