Why Klinsmann’s USMNT Copa America roster makes sense

Posted on May 22nd, by Daryl in Soccer Podcasts. Comments Off on Why Klinsmann’s USMNT Copa America roster makes sense

[0:00] – We discuss Jurgen Klinsmann’s 23-man Copa America Centenario roster. Some big names were left out (Jordan Morris, Omar Gonzalez) and some surprising names were included (Chris Wondolowski) but we can — mostly — see the logic. Listen in to hear what we think.

[27:00] – We also review the USA’s 3-1 win over Puerto Rico, with an overhead kick/scorpion kick goal from Time Ream, a dominant DeAndre Yedlin, and an unstoppable Bobby Wood.

[39:28] – Finally, we offer a TSS Scouting Network roundup, featuring phenoms from around the world.
