The CONCACAF Gold Cup Is Holding The Soccer Media Hostage
Hey it's the CONCACAF Gold Cup! Fun!
No. Not fun. Not fun for people who must watch this product. The soccer is bad at the Gold Cup. Real bad. Even the USMNT, the host nation and one of the favorites, is a shadow of itself. This is a soccer wasteland.
Let's see what some of our colleagues in soccer media had to say about the USMNT's thrilling 3-2 win against Martinique:

Don't let your casual soccer-watching friends watch this tournament.— Stars and Stripes FC (@StarsStripesFC) July 13, 2017
The knockout stages will be better. I will keep telling myself this until I start to believe it.
