Soccer By Ives at related • 1 view

The U.S. Men's National Team's World Cup fate will be decided in Trinidad & Tobago on Friday night.

After toppling Panama, 4-0, on Friday, the U.S. can seal a spot in Russia on Friday night with a victory over the Soca Warriors. A draw would also almost certainly be good enough while a loss to last-place T&T would open the door for Panama or Honduras to make a late push up the Hexagonal table.

On Friday, that defense was completely worked by a U.S. Men's National Team attack that showed a new level in collective chemistry and flow.

Form is vital when it comes to the international game. Given the nature of international soccer, chemistry is always tough to come by, and that extra little bit of personal confidence can go a long way. Team cohesion is always great, but there's always so many moving parts. Sometimes, it's up to an in-form individual player to make an individual play or make an individual difference.
