USMNT vs Costa Rica, live! How to watch, lineup, live stream link, odds

0 Comments

Fans of the United States men’s national team, if not the team itself, may be having a crisis of expectations following several disappointing results through five matches of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.

A potential golden generation has not been at full-strength for all of qualifying and has not performed at its best for more than a match (Jamaica) and a half (the second 45 minutes versus Honduras).

[ MORE: How will USMNT line up vs Costa Rica? ]

Those two wins are joined a home draw with Canada, an away draw with El Salvador, and Sunday’s ugly 1-0 loss to Panama in Panama City to leave the Yanks second in the race for three automatic qualifying spots for Qatar 2022.

That’s fine. Good, actually, considering that proving that the failure to qualify for France 2018 was a fluke.

But there’s a larger question in play here, one that outweighs those of Gregg Berhalter’s status as coach or any individual players’ spot on the team.

Continued after the lineup…


USMNT lineup versus Costa Rica

The Yanks start Zack Steffen in goal for his first action in some time and Berhalter will give Chris Richards his first cap at center back next to Miles Robinson.

Sergino Dest and Antonee Robinson flank the duo, and Yunus Musah, Tyler Adams, and Weston McKennie are in the midfield.

Paul Arriola and Brenden Aaronson are out wide with Ricardo Pepi at center forward.


Isn’t the idea of the program and men’s soccer in this country that the team should at least appear to be the better team in almost every game, especially considering the Yanks have so far played everyone but the two teams to most often qualifying out of CONCACAF in Costa Rica and Mexico?

The United States ranks in the top five for number of registered soccer players in the world and Mexico is sixth. So it’s become logical to figure that a big, rich country would produce better players and that objective has been achieved for sure.

The Yanks are -223 to win through PointsBet, with a draw an unlikely +320 and a Costa Rican win even less so at +600. Yes, the bookmakers want to entice you to bet, but those odds are basically the same as these top European league matches over the next two weeks

  • Man City to win at Brighton
  • Dortmund to win at home to Mainz
  • Sevilla to win at home to Levante
  • AC Milan to win at home to Hellas Verona
  • Napoli to win at home to Torino
  • Gladbach to win at home to Stuttgart
  • Barcelona to win at home to Valencia

It follows that the hope for this qualifying cycle, given the historic embarrassment in 2017, the much-improved player pool depth, and the twin wins over Mexico in two trophy matches with different rosters this summer, that the goal wasn’t merely qualifying, but showing the strength of a knockout round contender.

That’s not happening yet.

Enter Costa Rica, who beat the U.S. 2-0 on American soil in 2017 qualifying and pasted the Yanks 4-0 in San Jose.

Los Ticos are not on the talent level of the U.S. and are certainly not at the heights that saw them a World Cup darling in 2014.

And they along with Mexico are the last two opponents the USMNT is yet to face, opponents that neutral observers would expect to beat or draw most other teams.

That means that failure to beat Costa Rica at home on Wednesday and Mexico at home on Nov. 12 wouldn’t just see the States shy of expectations, but likely the top four as the six teams below them on the table claim points off each other.

This is not simply to put a doom-and-gloom scenario out there, as El Tri have also faced home struggles en route to a World Cup.

Mexico’s lone dropped home points in the 2018 qualification cycle may’ve come off the long Michael Bradley bomb in a 1-1 draw at Azteca, but El Tri also won only one of five home qualifiers en route to an inter-confederation playoff win over New Zealand in 2014.

It happens, but it’s not supposed to happen to a potentially golden generation, even one on its way up. And those are the expectations that Berhalter and Co. are contending with now, even if they’ll rightly drown in sports cliche about the challenges of CONCACAF and plane flights and humidity and whatever.

Because we can concede that the Yanks, even in a golden generation, would need masterplans, performances, and maybe even a favorable draw to win a World Cup any time soon (even with home soil approaching in 2026) given the strength of talent and experience on France, Germany, Brazil, Belgium, and the like.

But the fan base will be expecting the team to not just show itself capable of qualifying for Qatar 2022; It’s about showing the world that the Yanks are the class of CONCACAF.

We wrote that the Yanks had done the lion’s share of moving past Couva with their summer triumphs in the CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup, but looking mediocre at best through five matches starts to color the runs to those trophies in a different light.

The Yanks won the Gold Cup semifinal 1-0 over Qatar on home soil despite being outshot 18-6. USMNT B-team? Sure, but Qatar went on to be pasted 4-0 by Serbia, 3-1 by Portugal, and 3-0 by Portugal again with a 0-0 draw with Luxembourg also part of that five-match run.

Their only recent non-CONCACAF opponents outside of Qatar — which is not their fault but a combination of the COVID-19 pandemic and the clogged international calendar thanks to the birth of the Nations Leagues — were friendlies against Northern Ireland’s B-team, Wales without Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey, and Switzerland. A 2-1 win, 0-0 draw, and a 2-1 loss, respectively.

If we’re being realistic, the USMNT being at the height of its modern power isn’t about being favored on neutral ground versus Italy. After all, CONCACAF teams — yes, even Mexico — have done better than a World Cup quarterfinal on one occasion: The USMNT’s third-place finish out of a 13-team field in 1930. Nineteen–thirty. MCMXXX. Obscene.

But it’s about winning most of your CONCACAF games or at least clearly out-performing the opposition. And it’s about having more than long odds against the world’s next tier of teams.

What does that mean? Here are the World Cup group draws for every CONCACAF team since 2000. The italicized draws are the USMNT.

  • Serbia, Switzerland, Brazil
  • Sweden, South Korea, Germany
  • Belgium, England, Tunisia
  • Brazil, Croatia, Cameroon
  • Uruguay, Italy, England
  • France, Switzerland, Ecuador
  • Germany, Portugal, Ghana
  • Uruguay, South Africa, France
  • England, Slovenia, Algeria
  • Spain, Chile, Honduras
  • Germany, Ecuador, Poland
  • England, Sweden, Paraguay
  • Portugal, Angola, Iran
  • Italy, Ghana, Czech Republic
  • Brazil, Turkey, China
  • South Korea, Portugal, Poland
  • Italy, Croatia, Ecuador

From how many of those, right now and given each country’s typical strength, would you expect to net the USMNT’s a likely knockout round berth? Because that’s the aim (For what it’s worth, we’re setting the over/under at seven).

The truth is that the team’s status in the World Cup draw is well and good if and when the Yanks beat Costa Rica at home, but its status as finding its potential as a deserving top 25 team in the world is well and good only if the performance is good without Christian Pulisic, John Brooks, and Giovanni Reyna.

A win would mean 1.83 points-per-game through six matches without facing Mexico. Awesome. But the question is: Is a place in Qatar and hope for over-performing enough? Anyone who called getting out of the Germany, Portugal, Ghana group and losing to Belgium in 2014 anything other than a success needs to answer that question with a resounding no.

Argentina vs Australia: How to watch live, stream link, team news

0 Comments

Lionel Messi and Argentina will continue their 2022 World Cup quest when they face Australia, arguably the biggest surprise of the tournament thus far, in the round of 16 on Saturday.

STREAM ARGENTINA vs AUSTRALIA LIVE

Argentina rebounded from their opening defeat to Saudi Arabia with back-to-back 2-0 victories over Mexico and Poland to finish top of Group C and reach the knockout rounds in 14 straight World Cup appearances.

Australia, on the other hand, are in the knockout stage for just the second time ever (2006 – round of 16). The Socceroos were also beaten, and battered, by defending champions France in their opener, but a pair of back-to-back 1-0 wins over Tunisia and Denmark were enough to see them through on a dramatic final day of Group D play.

Here is everything you need for Argentina vs Australia. 


How to watch Argentina vs Australia live, stream link and start time

Kick off: 2pm ET, Saturday (December 3)
Stadium: Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, Al Rayyan
TV channels en Español: Telemundo
Streaming en Español: Peacock (all 64 matches)


Key storylines, players to watch closely

Without looking ahead and past Australia, Argentina will know that their half of the bracket is shaping up rather nicely for a run to at least the semifinals, where they could potentially meet bitter rivals Brazil. Messi has been in fine form thus far in Qatar, scoring twice and assisting once more during the group stage, even if he was denied from the penalty spot by Poland’s Wojciech Szczesny in the finale. The main question regarding Lionel Scaloni’s selection revolves around Lautaro Martinez (2 starts in the group stage – 0 goals, 0 assists) and Julian Alvarez (1 start – 1 goal, 0 assists) at center forward.

Australia head into Saturday’s showdown having not conceded a goal in 199 minutes, going back to France’s fourth in the opener. The Socceroos have had success since switching to a 4-4-2 in both of their victories, keeping eight, nine and sometimes 10 men behind the ball while averaging just 36.7 percent of possession over the three games. Australia are one of four sides (Morocco, Poland and Japan being the others) to have held less than 40 percent of possession and make it through to the knockout rounds.

Netherlands vs USA: How to watch, live stream link, team news

0 Comments

This USA looks for a legacy-cementing performance when it meets the Netherlands in the 2022 World Cup Round of 16 on Saturday in Al Rayyan.

The Yanks await fitness updates of Christian Pulisic and Josh Sargent but are largely healthy, though the USA has been leaning on largely the same starters deep into all three matches.

STREAM LIVE NETHERLANDS v USA

Louis van Gaal’s Netherlands opened the tournament with a 2-0 win over Senegal, then drew Ecuador 1-1 before blanking Qatar 2-0.

However, the Dutch have an illness bug sweeping through their team and key playmaker Frenkie de Jong is among those not feeling great.

USA drew Wales 1-1 Wales before a more impressive 0-0 with England and a pivotal 1-0 win over Iran that saw Christian Pulisic injured while scoring a huge goal.

USA fullback Sergino Dest chose the USMNT over the Netherlands and will certainly be in focus Saturday on the right side (presuming he starts his fourth-straight match).

Here is everything you need for Netherlands vs USA.


How to watch Netherlands vs USA live, stream link and start time

Kick off: 10am ET, Saturday Dec. 3
Stadium: Khalifa International Stadium, Al Rayyan
TV channels en Español: Telemundo
Streaming en Español: Peacock (all 64 matches)


Key storylines, players to watch closely

The Netherlands are the fourth-best team in ELO Ratings and eighth in FIFA’s oft-debated rankings, while the Yanks are ranked 20th by ELO and 16th by FIFA.

So the big storyline is whether the favorites’ role affects the Dutch at all, having had that label against Ecuador, Senegal, and Qatar, and whether the Yanks can effectively channel their underdog energy again as they did against England.

The huge question, of course, is whether Christian Pulisic is 100%, 75%, or less following the pelvic contusion suffered against Iran. While Tim Weah’s been very good and fullbacks Sergino Dest and Antonee Robinson splendid, Pulisic is no doubt the focus of defenders and the U.S. attack. It’s also worth watching whether Weston McKennie finally has a game-changing performance at this tournament, as the Juventus man has been getting back to full fitness all World Cup.

The Dutch have been thrilled by the performances of 23-year-old Cody Gakpo, who has scored in every game. The back line of Virgil vsn Dijk, Jurrien Timber, and Nathan Ake has been good, allowing just one goal, while Matthijs de Ligt started the first game in place of Timber and Stefan de Vrij looms on the bench. With Frenkie de Jong in the center of the park, this Dutch team is very strong even if it isn’t vintage Holland.


Netherlands vs USA all-time

The USMNT scored a memorable win over the Dutch in 2015 under Jurgen Klinsmann, trailing 1-0 and 3-1 before winning 4-3 with goals from Danny Williams and Bobby Wood in the 89th and 90th minutes to get the win. Gyasi Zardes and John Brooks also scored in the game.

The Dutch had won all four meetings before that and all five games were friendlies occurring between 1998 and 2015.


Netherlands vs USA, World Cup history

The Dutch have never faced the USA at a World Cup, and the home of Johan Cruyff certainly has a more illustrious tournament history.

The Netherlands, like the USMNT, missed the 2018 tournament. That absence came after finishing in third place in 2014 and losing the 2010 final to Spain. They’ve lost three finals in total, two in the mid 1970s, and haven’t lost a World Cup game outside of penalties since that 1-0 loss to Spain in 2010.

The USMNT’s best tournament finish concluded with the controversial loss to Germany in the 2002 quarterfinals, but the Yanks have now reached the knockout rounds the last three times they participated in the World Cup. They’ve only won a knockout round match in 2002.


Netherlands quick facts

Current FIFA world ranking: 8
World Cup titles: 0
World Cup appearances: 10
How they qualified: Qualified automatically from UEFA (Won Group G)
Coach: Louis van Gaal
Key players: Virgil van Dijk, Memphis Depay, Frenkie de Jong, Cody Gakpo

The World Cup 2022 schedule is locked in and this tournament in Qatar has been sensational as the knockout rounds will capture the imagination of the globe.

Japan, Australia and Morocco made the last 16 with so many huge shocks during the tournament, while Germany, Denmark and Belgium all crashed out in the group stage.

From the USMNT and England getting out of their group to Lionel Messi dragging Argentina through and Mexico just missing out on getting out of the group stages and amid upsets galore, there are plenty of intriguing games in the latter stages.
