EPL Talk at related • 0 views

The first competitive game in over a year for the US Men's National Team (USMNT) is against Honduras in the opening game of the 2015 Gold Cup. This is one of the toughest Gold Cup tournaments ever and the stakes are very high, with a berth in the 2017 Confederations Cup up for grabs.

On Friday, the US thumped Guatemala 4-0 in front of 44,835 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville (the largest ever crowd for a soccer game in Tennessee).

While the Gold Cup is starting a month later than usual, the meaning for this confederation remains the same: who is the big dog between Mexico and the United States.

Maybe the other nations in this region will feel aggrieved by that statement, but the results are clear. Since the tournament's inception, Canada (in the year 2000) is the only other nation to have hoisted the Cup.

Unlike bigger tournaments, this evening's game between the United States and Guatemala is the USMNT's only Gold Cup warm-up match. It's a good rehearsal for the Americans, as Guatemala is a bit stronger than Group A opponent Haiti while also providing broad stylistic similarity to Panama.

There is certainly a heaping handful of curious among these 35 players, but I can only assume that Euro-trip hero Bobby Wood is being left off so he can clarify his club situation and get a proper preseason with his new club. Though he is unlikely to change clubs, the same type of club-centric thinking probably explains why Rubio Rubin is uninvolved.
