Strong squad, but are McKenna and Klukowski hurt or something?

I'm glad Nash wasn't picked because I am tired of the nonsensical 40 yard balls all game long that do nothing. We need to use DeRo, DeGu, Hume, Issey, etc.'s speed and quick passing ability. Bernier and Atiba will have a tough job in the midfield, but I like the squad.

I really think we can get the three points here.

I'll be at the game and will likely wear black! Some people are trying to get fans to wear black in protest of the CSA. I look pretty good in black.

Oh yes, I forgot to add that I will be at the game as well! I'll be sitting in the East end and I'll be wearing... RED! No need for our players to suffer because of incompetent management. We finally have some strong players throughout the squad and need to get behind them!

Who will our players suffer if we're wearing black shirts? If anything, they suffer the most under our management so anything against the CSA would be in support of the players!

Joshua and Co. Please let me know if Gonzalo Segares plays for Costa Rica and what you think of his performance in the match. i don't know if there is anywhere in the states that I can watch this match.

He's a good friend of mine just starting with Costa Rica national team and I'm having a hard time following his games.

Visca Barca!!

CM, your boy started the game and looked really calm and cool at the back. He's very composed on the ball for a defender, but man he had a really tough time with Julian de Guzman who was toying with him all game. At least he wasn't diving and faking injuries like the rest of the Costa Rica team. He was getting involved in alot of physical challenges and was one of the only two or three players on their team that wasn't diving and falling all over the place. He sure could use some weight on him, though. He looks like he's about 160 pounds.

Well he's definitely not one for diving and rolling about. He played at university here in USA so I think maybe he got away from that cheeky culture.

I was actually surprised to see that he played. I didn't get to speak to him before the match, but I saw an interview in which he was talking like he didn't think he would feature much in the match having played the entire match at the weekend.

From what I read they played in 3-5-2 on the weekend and he was one of the marking backs. Was that the case yesterday? I think it's a shame because as you said he has really good technique and is composed as a defender, that is why he is much better playing as a wing back getting forward. He can be very dangerous in that role, but he doesn't get to play it very much lately.

I think having to go up against such a good player as de Guzman will be a really good experience for him. From what i'm reading in the papers I expect him to stay in the team hopefully throughout the WC qualification process.

Thanks again for the info

Visca Barca!!

On the TV broadcast when they showed the lineups, CR was shown as having a 4-4-2 and Canada a 4-3-3 formation. I can't say how closely they followed those game plans in reality, however.
