Tactics Talk / US Open Cup
It’s time to start thinking about the tactical approach to the US Open Cup final. Kevin Kinkead gets the conversation started.
Brazil destroyed the US on Tuesday night, and they weren’t even at their best. Klinsmann has some serious work to do between now and October.
Friday’s victory over Peru did little to inspire confidence that the US Men are ready to face a foe of the caliber of Brazil. Michael Bradley returns for this game, and his relentless driving energy, allied with Jozy Altidore’s finishing (he scored two versus Peru, his first since March 25), might be enough to get the US on the board. But keeping Neymar and Co. out is the bigger challenge for Klinsmann’s team.
The US defeated Peru, 2–1, on Friday night, coming from behind on two Jozy Altidore goals. While the overall performance was underwhelming, the US will look to build on it when they face Brazil next week.
The US takes on Peru in the first of two friendlies this Friday at 7:00 PM EDT. But here’s the thing: It’s not about Peru.
It’s official: the Union will own and operate a USL team that will begin play in 2016 and will call Bethlehem in the Lehigh Valley home.
