A View from Afar / Commentary
Hometown boy John McCarthy wasn’t the only good sign for the Union on Saturday, but he certainly was a fun one to watch. PSP’s Dan Walsh looks at that and some of the other good signs on display.
Mexico will have a relatively friendly crowd to play for, but El Tri just doesn’t win in the U.S. unless the stakes are very high. That is not the case tomorrow, and comparing the relative strengths of the squads, the U.S. probably has the advantage.
Player of the Week
It was a vintage performance from the Frenchman that saw him put in a great deal of work on both sides of the ball and culminated in his stoppage time winner.
