How does The Athletic know? Because for around two years this writer occasionally trained with Robinson. The Galacticos was private coaching for players hoping to take the next step in their young careers. My nickname was (Carles) Puyol — although it was never confirmed if that was because I was a defender or for my looks. Once you got a nickname, that was it. The only player who did not have a player’s nickname was Robinson.

have been in friendlies. Tonight, he'll start the U. 's biggest match in more than eight years. He's faster than Zimmerman, which should allow the U. to better deal with Iran on the counter. He isn't as dominant in the air, however, which could affect the Americans' odds on set pieces on both ends of the field.

Wales did not have the right blend in that area and as their 2-0 defeat went on, they were more and more devoid of structure and rhythm. Iran took advantage of their passive opposition, the complete opposite of what they were asked to deal with against England.
IR Iran - USA Live - World Cup: Football Scores & Highlights - 29/11/2022TEAM NEWSFirst thing's first, here's how the teams will line up tonight. USA coach Gregg Berhalter has made two changes from the 0-0 draw with England, bringing in Celtic centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers and Norwich forward Josh Sargent.
Beiranvand left the opener against England in the 19th minute due to a collision of heads. Possibly a change in formation from a 5-3-2 against Wales to a 4-3-3 today. In total, only six of that XI from the 2-0 win return to the lineup today. That’s a lot of change after a statement victory. Jeff Rueter·Staff Writer, MLSNovember 29, 2022 at 1:17 PM ESTUSMNT starts all-European league line-upFor the first time since MLS started play in 1996, the U. S. starting lineup at a World Cup was devoid of any players who play in the country's domestic league. Walker Zimmerman had been the lone MLS starter through the first two games, but he was benched in favor of Celtic center back Cameron Carter-Vickers. There are, of course, several MLS players on the bench, including Zimmerman, forward Jesus Ferreira, right backs DeAndre Yedlin and Shaq Moore, center back Aaron Long, midfielders Cristian Roldan and Kellyn Acosta, winger Jordan Morris and goalkeeper Sean Johnson.
I’ve just arrived outside the stadium for the USA against Iran and this is, by a mile, the most intense pre-match atmosphere I’ve experienced at this tournament. Iranian representation is larger than American and there’s tons of Iranian supporters singing and blowing horns along the wall to the ground. The political edge to the game is very much live. I just stopped by a family which included an Iranian woman wearing a “women, life, freedom” T-shirt. When I first approached the family, they were visibly nervous and it was only when I explained that I am British and that our website had reported on the Iranian struggle for freedom that they relaxed and gave me some hugs! They, like many Iranians here, say they fear the presence of Iranian state spotters at this evening’s game and as such they were reluctant to be photographed or even have their voices recorded for a podcast interview.
If the US push the pace and commit to playing on the front foot, it’s all there for them.
