The USMNT had a decent win last night against Paraguay, but honestly, it was a missed opportunity:
Gonna beat a dead horse here, but I didn’t need to see Nagbe for 90 minutes to know what he gives me. Especially out on the wing where you shouldn’t be playing him. He’s a part of your pool for sure. Let’s see some other guys and for more than 5 minutes.— Paul Tenorio (@PaulTenorio) March 28, 2018
Afterwards it sounded like American Manager Dave Sarachan was going to take his big boys out for ice cream at least:

"This game became a real big boy game and these guys kept their composure when things started to fly. Winning is good and it's another step forward for this group."
Anyway, the USMNT seems to be something of a mess with a manager who looks to be trying to placate the “play your kids” contingent while also getting results to keep his temporary job. Hopefully for the national team, Sarachan doesn’t turn into the house guest who just doesn’t leave.
Anyway, onto the Dirt...
LAFC signed another DP as they continue to be the best expansion team in MLS history.
Less successful expansion teams are also looking to add a DP as Darwin Quintero seems set to join Minnesota United. The team is finally making the moves needed to be ready to play in MLS it looks like.
Peru blewout Iceland 3-1 in Harrison, New Jersey last night. Also, someone tell J. Sam Jones that the ‘we’re not tweeting about this game anymore because it’s a blowout and it’s embarrassing’ bar has been raised:
If you can't find a stream, we can report that a pack of #ISL wolves have stormed the field. Peruvian players are scattering, leaping over the advertising hoardings. The referee has requested a tranquilliser dart gun. Chaos.— Reykjavík Grapevine (@rvkgrapevine) March 28, 2018
