Prepare Yourself For This USMNT Z-Team Roster That Will Play Bosnia In Los Angeles This Month

The U.S. men’s national team will play Bosnia and Herzegovina in Los Angeles for an international friendly on Dec. 19. The December USMNT roster for this game was released Friday morning and fans will need to familiarize themselves with some new names.

This friendly isn’t being played during an international break, meaning big names like Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and Sergiño Dest won’t make the trip to LA. The roster features 21 MLS players, two USL Championship (the league below MLS) and three players who play for club teams outside the U.S.

USMNT Picks Cold-Weather Sites For Next Two Home World Cup Qualifiers

U.S. Soccer has selected two cold-weather venues for the men's national team's key World Cup qualifiers against El Salvador and Honduras early next year.

U.S. Leapfrogs Mexico In FIFA Rankings For First Time In 6 Years, Canada Ties Highest Ranking In History

FIFA believes that the USMNT is better than Mexico for the first time since July 2015. The latest FIFA rankings were released on Friday, with the Americans (12) sitting two spots above their southern neighbor (14). Some Swiss cheese in the middle created a lovely Concacaf sandwich.

Marcelo Flores Domina A Estados Unidos Y Clama Por Un Llamado Al Tri Adulto

El fútbol mexicano tuvo muy pocas alegrías a nivel de selección en el mes de noviembre. Y las que hubo vinieron en los pies de Marcelo Flores. El jugador de 18 años, perteneciente a los registros del Arsenal, parece ser el futuro del Tri y algo de eso mostró liderando al equipo Sub-20 en la consecución de la Revelations Cup.

Jamaica Fans Brought A Whole New Meaning To Feeling Horny And I Hate It

The USMNT grabbed a point in Kingston, Jamaica, on Tuesday after a tame performance and 1-1 draw in World Cup qualifying against the Reggae Boyz. The real defeat of the day happened to anyone watching the game on Paramount+ that was forced to listen to 90 minutes of horns.

The Jamaica horns from the few hundred fans in attendance were relentless. A limited number of spectators were allowed into National Stadium Independence Park due to Covid protocols. 

Michail Antonio Smashes One Of The Greatest Goals Ever Scored Against The USMNT

At the time of writing this there’s no telling how the rest of the USMNT versus Jamaica in Kingston will play out, but it’s almost guaranteed what will live longest in the memory is Michail Antonio’s 100 mph howitzer from over 25 yards out to pull the Reggae Boyz level in the 22nd minute. 

It’s hard to fault Tyler Adams for showing him inside when the danger level is so low, and it’s impossible to fault Zack Steffen — the ball is in the back of the net before he can even get into his dive animation. 

Taylor Twellman And Grant Wahl Are Bickering On Twitter And We’re All Losing

On Friday night, I was out of my element. 

Usually when the USMNT is playing a big match, I’m in front of a TV with a laptop and maybe a third screen for other matches, watching every possible second of pregame and checking lineups and the latest from social media. For USA-Mexico on Friday, I was out of town for a wedding, completely unfettered from requirements of covering the match for my job. I wound up at a sports bar in Austin (the Black Sheep Lodge) that promised to show the big game, but I wasn’t quite sure what that meant.
