The USMNT faces Paraguay (and Seattle Sounders DP Nelson Valdez) today in a Copa America Centenario action.
Despite Messi’s brilliance and the drama and controversy between Chile and Bolivia yesterday, I’ll keep those post short and get straight to the bold prediction.
Bold Prediction: Jurgen’s squad usually underwhelms, but after thrashing a quality Costa Rican side, the Yanks hope to be marching into the knockout round. Both teams are playing for their Copa lives today and Paraguay is no slouch. Luckily we just need a result, while Paraguay needs all three points.
If Jurgen starts the same lineup three games in a row (continuity? go figure!), I see a hungry home team punching their ticket through. If he gets too cute, things could get interesting and maybe we’ll all get our bittersweet wish of seeing Jurgen sent packing. I just don’t see it today: USMNT 1-1.
