thank you for making this almost 10 minutes long! getting better and better at these
Us soccer is leaving so much content out…look how the English FA handles camps…you get videos three times a week…they showed the players getting fitted for suits.
@Sheldon Armstrong To be fair, England's roster is filled with players at big clubs from the top down, we don't have that many relevant players, and after 2017, I only care about the relevant players...one video is enough, maybe two if the second one only features our top guys.
I love team USA but lacks a lot to be a world class team, I have faith in u guys keep it up go USA
Our coach sucks, we got all the good players just no verticality
Gotta remember these are just kids, it'll come one day in their primes
We’ll need a top coach for the next World Cup 2026!
@Shane Murphy yeah with the right coach
Epic game. I was there along with 19,000 other fans. The spirit of this USMNT kept me warm.
PROUD TO BE AMERICAN 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲
Me too 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Respect US POWER SOCCER! Amazing people, unbelievable mental strength!
This USMNT is bad ass!! Love the chemistry on this team!! 💕
They are certainly getting slightly better over the years. We will see what happens...
@Arthur Shelby Slightly better lmao. We didn't even qualify in 2018, and now we've been near the top of the table and won two trophies with a squad of 20 year olds.. The change is happening before your eyes...
@Arthur Shelby this team is at its lowest point and they are already showing more guts then the last group
I was at the Minnesota game it was an amazing experience love USA 🇺🇸
How were those weather conditions lol
@Abid Khan honestly not bad people are exaggerating everyone was having a good time I didn’t see anyone complain
@German The pilot R I think cause like soccer isn’t usually played in cold environments like if this was American football there wouldn’t really be backlash
@Abid Khan yea that’s probably why people on ESPN were complaining lol
@German The pilot R they should play more games like this just cause everyone complaining lol
Need NEW coach or an experienced European coach to have this talented team reach a certain world class level
Proud to be an American!! 🇺🇸
Glad to see you made it out of TWD
You mean United Statian, America is a continent. Please learn some geography. Sincerely a Native American descendent.
They might have dominated the ball against Canada, but they dominated the game. Canada was in control.
Our attacking 3rd needs to be more dynamic than passing the ball to the laterals and hope for a cross. We have good players to drive it down the middle if it's open.
Not according to berhaulter tho. To him the US played a great game. If they don’t qualify he’s going to be the reason. And if they do I’m worried they will bounced in the group stage and beat bad by some teams. This team has so much talent, be it young but this coach is not the guy to be leading them. His message and ideology is terrible and the way he sets lineups is borderline comical mostly every game. I’m excited tho for us to be very good in the coming years!!!
I was in the 5th row of The American Outlaws and it was undoubtably one of my favorite sporting events ever!!!!!! I will never forget that night! World class atmosphere and not once was I cold!!! I know almost everyone hates the idea but I think we need more games like this in the freezing cold! Our best performance in the entire cycle!
No. Also, we were playing against the likes of a semi-professional team. We ought to dominate tiny nations like Honduras, no matter the weather. It is pathetic to subject players to that kind of cold for no reason.
They hate the idea for a reason. Hypothermia and frostbite is no game if you’re pushing it like these guys. No reason to play with that danger. It’s like asking people to play in Death Valley
That was low class, the US doesn't have to throw low blows like this one.
Great...against the worst team in the WCQ who nearly froze to death. Amazing..
3 things: Good production value in these videos. Smooth moves from Tim Weah. Berhalter Out. That is all.
Tim Weah is a gift.
Feel sorry for Turner man look like he was having frost bite he literally had quiet night and freezing he's ass out there
Stupid place to play for our players in the middle of winter. Stupid. No need. Against the worst team in the competition.
nothing beats the squad walking out to the whole stadium USA chant.
Is this match played at south pole..? 17 degrees below zero !!! Oh my god ... how did FiFA allow this ..? Gongratolation to America 🇺🇸.. see you soon in Qatar ... I’m Ali from Kuwait 🇰🇼
Cheers from California, USA to Kuwait! I really want to be in the World Cup! 😭🙏🏻 I want to be in Qatar to watch our boys! See you soon in Qatar! 💪🏻🇶🇦🇰🇼🇺🇸
It was midwest. People underestimate how cold it gets up in north west of the USA. ND, MN, MT, and SD can get as cold as Canada. Where I live we reached -40. Thanks for following USA team!
LDLT should easily be called up in the last window. Guy was everyone at once.
We should won against Canada but it's OK it happens let's go 🇺🇲💪⚽️💯
We could've done better, but it is what it is. We're still holding strong though.
Fun fact, next we’re up against the three concacaf teams that went to the World Cup in 2018 instead of us. We complain that we should’ve been in the World Cup and not some of them. If we really believe that, we’re gonna show them. Mexico, Panama, & Costa Rica went last time, if we want to show that we should be there and not them, we’ll beat them! Let’s goooooo! 💪🏻🇺🇸
8:52-8:59 - Timmy all happy is priceless!
Berhalter cares more about his shoes than his wins and scoring
Wow,....they scored a goal!
I love the United States one day I will play for you and represent that very beautiful shirt that represents love and the unity of an entire country thank you very much friends for missing everything on the field someday In the 10 that I become and it will be an honor for me to represent that shirt I love it since Hera Nilo thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to wear these beautiful colors 👋👋👋
Still can’t get over the fact that Gregg said that the Canada game was a good performance
Well the world will keep turning somehow
@Rodger Murphy not for us soccer
Great job getting the job done, and 3 points. A home win against Panama will close the deal if they don't continue their winning ways against mexico on the road
Bring us to the World Cup boyos!
heartwarming segment with lletget ngl made me tear up
I love My Beautiful USA Men team so much and I love Our Women team so much too.😊😇🥰
First, I can’t believe they put Gregg saying that the performance against Canada was good in this video. Second, why did they cut out Luca’s speech?!
I'm surprised the Honduran team came back out for the second half.
We need a better coach or we are getting blown out in group stage at Qatar 2022, if we make it.
I wonder what situation we'd be in if we didn't have the best ever generation of US players, we need a coach that can match the quality of the players.
Honestly we would probably be in the same situation we were for 2018 world cup. Using all MLS players and struggling for that 4th spot. Once we qualify and start playing legit teams in the train up for Qatar, they really need to fix their offensive gameplan or get rid of Greggy.
as expected he gave the ball to luca de la torre.
In Wes we Trust.
USA 🇺🇸 will re-qualify for the FIFA World Cup spot
I would have liked to heard what GGG said to the boys after the Canada loss, not just his ridiculous results/performance comment to the media. Did he go in there and tell them they dominated? What kind of reaction did that get? Also, did LDLT say anything after being given the game ball?
Proud to be 🇺🇸 also Berhalter out! 👍🏼👍🏼
You guys should’ve shown Gregg’s kicks and his “70%” win percentage that doesn’t take include our much lower WCQ win percentage!! That would’ve shown the fans that are on the cusp of supporting a coach hired through nepotism that he can unite us and get us behind him!!
we're currently on track to qualify, what are you complaining for?
@Jakob Hull the USMNT Twitter account sent a tweet yesterday bragging about GGG’s win record. We’re in 3rd tied with Mexico, with two road games at places where we have never won a WCQ game and a home game against a team that we already lost to. There’s so many nightmare scenarios where we could end up with another Couva.
@Oscar A How can we be in 3rd with only team ahead of us? LOL. I think its called tied for 2nd.
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO PUT THE "BEHIND THE CREST" FOR THE CANADA GAME? 😂😂😂
Why couldn’t we have played this way against ES?!
Because ES is a better team than Honduras but overall still bad. Says a lot about the usmnt and GGG TBH
Or Canada for that matter….
We should've only aimed for 1st place, Berhalter! These kids deserve better than to defer to a Davies-less and Eustaquio-less Canada team. You made our players play right into their hands. Thanks a lot! 🙄
Looking for the "Behind The Crest" vid for the Canada game. Can't seem to really find it anywhere. Pls upload
Soccer isn't super popular here yet, but it's slowly climbing. Maybe soon it'll be one of the top 3 sports on TV here, tied with baseball.
Damn ,...Canada sure waxed these guys and it is a shame that the women's team has turned a lot of fans away from US soccer!
He's gotta go... I understand they're trying to portray GGG in a good light but he's gotta go
He ain't going anywhere, in 2nd place, with a way better record than in 2018 at this point. You can hope for it, but he is in for the remainder.
@Arturo It's disgusting. He gets pay 1 Million ..for what????? Disgusting
I wish i should join team usa
Good win but still not a cohesive unit and a long way from a WC spot away at Mexico & Costa Rica, and anything other than 3 home points vs Panama means another disaster.
Window after window during this qualifying the US has underperformed. We now have the strongest pool of talent in the region by a considerable margin, yet we scrape through windows. Canada with considerably less talent has consistently performed throughout qualifying. Berhalter constantly makes questionable roster decisions, remains dogmatic in the same pattern of play regardless of the situation, frequently makes poor substitutions is inexplicably tied to certain players while others who demonstrate excellent form at their club team are excluded. We are approaching the final window of this qualifier in a situation that is mathematically significantly worse than we were in the last cycle. The current point total is misleading since the US has a much, much harder upcoming window than our direct competitors. This team could easily finish either 4th or even 5th. Given there is no reason this team should finish lower than 2nd this is for the talent level potentially a massive failure. Why are we still using a benchmark of qualifying for the WC in CONCACAF as success when our sights should be much higher.
Win against Panama at home and they qualify
@nFWAYGo And we've already failed there, since most likely the best we can do is finish in 2nd, and because of the mediocre attitude of the USSF and GGG we may not get enough points in the window to even keep second place...
Stronger pool of talent than Canada? LOL. Who are you kidding? I am a USA fan obviously, but come on, Canada has assembled a world class roster. Ours is a mixed bag.
@Arturo Really. OK do an analysis of the starting 11 for the US and Canada. Two Canadians would start ahead of their american counterparts - David at No 9 and Davies at the left back No 3. The other 9 players would be US players. If you then go to the second level the same thing would be true. The problem is no US talent we have way more, the problem in how it is being rostered, the tactics used, the lineups and the changes during the game. Herdman is a significantly better manager than GGG and it has been show over and over again during a qualifying campaign where Canada overperforms window after window while we significantly underperform based on our player pool.
I think we are qualifying, but this qualification cycle has been incredibly disappointing. People need to understand that just because we are in position to qualify DOES NOT MEAN WE ARE DOING A GOOD JOB. Some facts: 1. CONCACAF is one of the easiest regions to qualify from (imagine if we had to qualify from Europe or South America). 2. A bunch of teams are significantly weaker this cycle than they were last cycle; Mexico, Panama, Honduras and Costa Rica are all much worse now. 3. This is supposedly our best team ever on paper. 4. We have qualified for every world cup since 1990 except for 2018, and even in that, if the Panama ghost goal had CORRECTLY been not given, the US would have made it to the playoff. 5. We have qualified with teams far less skilled than this team. So qualifying is not a big accomplishment when we have done so with far less skilled teams, and if we do it in this manner, despite having our best ever team, and in a diminished CONCACAF on top of it. You'd think after last cycle, US Soccer would work to get a world class coach and dominate qualifying to at least BEGIN to make up for last cycle. I will always support this team, even if we don't qualify for 3 straight World Cups, but I honestly think it's a slap in the face to our fans to continue with this mediocre mentality when we have more talent than ever, and after last cycle
How can you look at how much we are progressing and call this mediocrity? I believe this coach is perfect for this young team because he’s young as well and able to relate. it sets them up for decades of chemistry/ growth. I don’t want some know-it-all coach who will try to force tactics on an inexperienced group of players and end up getting us embarrassed on International tv.
Qualifying form however doesn’t always translate into World Cup form however. Wasn’t it 2002 where the US scraped through qualifying and was literally a hand ball away from going to a World Cup semi-final. What important is qualifying, then we can look forward to how we play in the WC
@Adam we have been so mediocre .. we’ve had to scratch out wins against pretty bad competition. If you take out the two worst teams in the octagonal and make it like the hex our record is trash. Also, our coach isn’t relatable to our players… guy said we went sicko mode on them and made a fool of himself. Lastly, all this coach does is force tactics on the players… very one dimensional tactics that haven’t been working.
Panama is much WORSE now? LOL. Hello?
How many times do we have to lose until we realize gregg berhalter IS NOT OUR COACH... not TODAY and not tomorrow
Good Stuff lads. But I got two words for yall. . .PE and FOK! Let's unleash the hounds in March.
seeing all the players just freezing their ass off at halftime and knowing this could've been avoided really pissed me off.
Weah is like Rudiger while danse celebrate 😃
I’m sorry but the only reason Jordan Morris should be in the stadium is if he bought a ticket. And then Gregggg starts him. Unreal. Especially with Aaronson on the team.
Gregg Berhalter isn’t talented enough to be the coach of USMNT. He sometimes makes horrible selections, Berhalter doesn’t know how to change the game with substitutions or tactics and he doesn’t know how to motivate and keep the players to play above their level. He is an average coach at best!
Why can’t Robinson and Dest cross a ball? Why is it that our defenders always pass wide and we end up never never anything down the middle in attacking third?
These highlights are delusional. We suck and need to be better. As a top tier country in concacaf it should be unacceptable to even have a close game with any of these teams. Shame again to the corrupt USSF and to the ignorance about this being a good World Cup qualifying window.
BEHIND THE CREST: CANMNT Blanks US in Hamilton
Struggle to qualify and too late to sack Berhalter. So if USA made it to Qatar, I'm worried they will go back home early.
Why in the world did the schedule this game in Minnesota in winter against the WORST team in the qualifiers? Ridiculous.
i love and lover you usa 🇺🇸 ❤💙 from iran and iranian 🇮🇷 💚❤ . 🇮🇷💚❤💙🤝🇺🇸 . go usa 🇺🇸 ❤💙 .
Damn didn't even get to hear LDT talk lmaooo
my guy was hittin that shi 8:51
Wow, you always had a topless guy in frozen weather. So some guys from Wisconsin and Minneapolis were resist to hypothermia?
A win el salvador win in Jamaica win panama would've this team qualified already
Soooo, nothing about the El Salvador game?
No LDLT speech?
lol did you see a guy with his shirt off in freezing cold weather?! XD
When Gregg can beat Mexico but can't beat Canada embarassing
Embarrassing for mexico
Are you seriously not going to post any highlights or Behind the Crest from the loss against Canada? Pretending like that game didn't take place?
did you watch the video?
@Vincenzo D'Anello there's less than a minute of highlights tacked onto the beginning of a video of another match. The other two matches got their own highlights and their own behind the crest.
@zx82 well they did exactly the same with the defeat against Panama, which was followed by the win against Costa Rica.
The video was about Costa Rica, but there was also a 1-2 minute intro about the loss in Panama.
THREE MORE MATCHES BOYS !!! I CAN SMELL QATAR
My predictions 2-1 against mexico 2-0 against costa rica and 1-0 against panama
Weah C walkiin baybee. Love to see it
I know I said top five, but I'm top two
And I'm not two and I got one
How are the neighbors feeling eh?
Berhalter out. He's just not the guy
By now usa should have been qualified had we a better coach. This coach is too inconsistent and gets lucky. Luck only gets you so far
LUCAAA DE LE TORREEEEE
Son said the performance didnt hurt. Dumbass coach bro
got spanked by canada lmaoooooo
No speech from Luca??? Hmmm…
Berhalter is not the right man for the job...
And yall kept the coaches stupid comments after the Canada game!?...🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
LDLT > Gregg
Lucky dislikes are disabled
Blanked Honduras in Minnesota with hyperthermia.
If you believe you are better than them, then prove it on a comfortable pitch. But you wanted an advantage?
What do you want them to try to play in a equal game no they want to have the. Eat chance of winning possible like I don’t understand what your saying at all they’ll try there best to win
@Charyosh523 don't claim US is better than Honduras if you need the cold as a teammate. Only make the claim if you can beat them in conditions where the climate is not going to be an obstacle for the opposing team. Now if you were playing against Brazil I say use the advantage cause US is not good enough to win. Two players from Honduras were removed due to hyperthermia. How thoughtful
We can’t beat El Salvador in the their home, we can’t beat Jamaica in their home, we can’t beat Canada in their own home, we can’t beat Panama in their own home, we can’t beat anyone in their home, we can’t afford to let those team be comfortable in this place as it’s the only country we’re decent at. We could easily be the worst team in the octogonal if we had no home games.
@Bryan Gonzales good point. We DOMINATED. Canada is amazing though. As an American, I'm proud of them. They are the best. We do have good players though.
USA has been complete shit on the road, and still beat Honduras 4-1 in Honduras. I think that fact is enough to say USA is better.
