Well, the only games left are USMNT vs. Canada and Cuba vs. USMNT. If USMNT defeats Canada +2, GD for US goes to 7 and GD for Canada goes down to 7. A win vs. Cuba would put us top of the group. Our chances are still good. Though I don't think our chances vs. Canada in Orlando with only 8,000 persons is a great home game. Ugh.
Any combination of wins over Canada and then Cuba puts us through, except if both are only by one goal.

So why isn't Sean playing tonight? What a joke. If be pissed if I were him. He's better than guzan in almost every category.

He's better than Steffen at distro too. Getting called up just to sit around is lame.

Totally agree with you, but this right here isn't saying much. Many, many others are better than Steffen at distribution.
Well, considering Berhalter's entire system is about playing out of the back, keeper distribution should be a priority. I don't think Johnson's shot stopping ability and decision making are that much worse than Steffen, at least in the last season. He's been pretty damn solid. In any event, he should be playing over Guzan.

Just hate seeing Johnson waste his time and OUR time when he's called up when we have games, especially important ones.

I am not sold on Steffan given he has had two major gaffes playing out of the back for the USA.

Johnson started over Guzan this summer, but is back behind him at the moment. Not really sure why, but Guzan is old enough that Johnson should be back in place before long.

Maybe kept him on as youth director or sporting director or something. His strength was always player development and not coaching.
Hi Jurgen, we don't want you to coach our senior team heading towards the world Cup anymore, but we'll keep you as our youth guru.

There is a slight chance Jurgen may have declined that offer.

What do you know about it?

Better to have a job than no job at all.
