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.


I hate to be the harbinger of bad news, ladies and gentlemen, but Michael Orozco will start for the US men's national team in Jacksonville.
