USMNT in crisis

So Atlanta, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the kit. Let me know what you’re thinking in the comments. Stay tuned for more reaction today. Eric Quintana and I recorded a Peach Pit last night at the Tabernacle, check out our immediate thoughts on the kit and last night’s event.

It was great to run into so many fans of the site, podcasts, and chats last night. Thanks for all the kind words and the support, all of us here at Dirty South Soccer greatly appreciate it!

On the flip side of the evening, the U.S. men’s national team looked lost again in a 4-0 loss in Costa Rica. This leaves the USMNT on the bottom of the Hex with zero points through two games. Only one team, Trinidad and Tobago in 2006, has qualified for the World Cup after this type of start.

The drumbeats for Jurgen Klinsmann to be fired are growing and will continue to build today. Some articles from around the county are collected below, but be on the lookout for more as the day goes on. It’s not a good day to be at the U.S. Soccer Federation in Chicago.

Join me tonight for the #ATLSoccer chat on Facebook Live at 8:00 p.m. Bring your thoughts and questions about Atlanta United, the USMNT, and anything else in the soccer world. See you then.
