Going into the Copa America Centenario draw, the USMNT knew it wouldn't see Argentina, Brazil, or Mexico in the group stage. That was the good news. The bad news is Jurgen Klinsmann's squad faces an incredibly tough group with Colombia, Costa Rica, and Paraguay. It seems once again the Americans are slotted for the Group of Death in a major international tournament. The USMNT kicks off its Copa campaign against Colombia on June 3 in Santa Clara, Calif.
Following the draw, Klinsmann remained relatively upbeat: "Obviously it's a difficult group, no doubt about it, but it's doable. We had a similar kind of scenario in Brazil and we went through, so now we start with Colombia right away instead of Ghana."
Pulisic played 45 minutes against top-four German side Bayer Leverkusen. Despite the recent club progress for the 17-year-old American, Klinsmann isn't sure if he'll select Pulisic for the USMNT Copa squad.
"The problem is not whether Jose Mourinho is a better call than Ryan Giggs. It's that the club is so broken that all the possibilities are somewhere between bad and dangerous."
This is terrible.
What's happening in The A?
It was a bad weekend for the Hawks. Before their Saturday home loss to the Bucks, they dropped a Friday night result to the undermanned Miami Heat at Philips Arena.
