    Not a terribly surprising result, and it's kinda hard to root against Ukraine right now.

    Should be a good match against Wales on Sunday....

    Considering the current condition Ukraine was amazing and had a well deserved victory.

    4th of June the Nations Cup games start, with Italy and Germany

    I couldn't watch the match, but one would think that Ukraine is playing inspired ball right now, somewhat like Denmark did in the Euros after Christian Eriksen went down.

    Speaking of Eriksen, I'm amazed he's still playing. How wonderful is that?

    Beautiful...the USMNT finally broke through...

    Tonight is fun but Sunday's match against Uruguay will be more of a test....

    Very satisfying win for the USMNT against Morocco last night - 3-0. They were back in good form....



    I still think Matt Turner is our best goalie and he showed why last night.

    Finally, it was great to see Tim Weah score a goal. He's been so good setting up his teammates but last night he was finally able to blast one in himself.

    Hopefully, we'll carry this momentum into Sunday's matchup against Uruguay...

    Italy vs Argentine in Wembly. 0:3. Italy sucked big time. That was not a good warm up for the NL this weekend.

    Ouch.

    Man, have the wheels fallen off the Azzurri's wagon since they won the Euros. Germany fans must be licking their chops...:eek:

    Italy Germany has history, a real rivalry, every game a derby. I am looking forward to that game.

    I think we lost @Center Field, but his heart must be bleeding.

    Italy vs Germany was a sleeping pill. Just 5 minutes were interesting.
    Italy scored first in the second half, pissed Germany off and 2 minutes later Germany scored. Otherwise a crap game

    Another lacklustre game in a lacklustre championship.
    England lucky to get out with a draw after Germany were dominant for most of the game. 1-1 :bored:

    It was nice to see Wales and Bale finally get in after all these years. They'll be our first opponent in the WC.

    Yeah, I wasted about an hour of my life watching that game. I was really expecting more out of Germany given the circumstances...

    As for the USMNT's WC tune-up against Uruguay, our boys played pretty well against a solid opponent but we were reminded of our problems at center forward and with set pieces. I don't know who and how the No. 9 position is going to get solved but it needs to get fixed soon. I think we can solve our set piece problem by putting Kellyn Acosta back on the kicks and moving Pulisic back out on the receiving end where he would serve us better, but will Berhalter make the move??
