Can’t believe the AR didn’t flag offsides for CR’s goal. He completely affected how the keeper played the ball, and he was clearly in an offside position. Love the fight and depth and experience we are building although sometimes I wonder if Berhalter knows what he’s doing when picking a lineup. Will be great to have Pulisic, Reyna, etc. back in November. 

To be fair the lineup we saw tonight will be about 85-90% of what we’ll see for our first World Cup match I think.  Substitute pulisic and Reyna and brooks and almost everyone else will stay the same.  Goalie is a toss up though and unfortunately with these three games in short succession along with major travel you have to sometimes do some load management and play some guys less and some guys more.  We saw that with Aaronson and weah playing lots of minutes the last two games due to the absence of pulisic and Reyna.

I think Berhalter wanted to put Steffen in goal last night mostly for the benefit of the Crew fans there, since Berhalter and Steffen came from that organization.  I bet he wanted to start Gyasi too, but knew that probably wouldn't have been a good idea.

 

Was happy to see Busio get in.  He had a couple of really nice balls in too, but in fairness the Ticos were 100% gassed by then and playing balls in wasn't very difficult.

Dest was off the end line behind the goal putting everyone in an onside position.
