    Not finding the video :( And it looks like Kyrgyzstan might be REALLY bad. Looks like they lost to Kazakhstan 13-1.

    Yes, they apparently replaced the video. If I find the highlights again I'll post.

    And I find out that's actually Georgia (the country obviously) putting the beatdown on Kazakhstan....tells you how much Azerbaijani I know :oops:

    Though, with the way that game went, I'm sure the US State of Georgia could have a similar result

    who is the #10? Akale? He looks pretty good in this game vs Azerbaijan. I like our backline, too.

    Well that's disappointing.

    Apparently we lost 2-1.

    Azerbaijan 2 U.S. 1 FT Right at the end it looked like there should have been a PK for the U.S. which wasn't called. Winning goal scored on poor marking.

    Well, sometimes I don't understand coaches. Why would you take out your main attacking threat in Akale...Could someone tell me why? The commentator was even surprised.

    another lesson in international gamesmenship. US had plenty of space to run in the midfield but just an awful display of final third composure. Service and badly weighted balls trickles out of bound. AZ burned us on counters and locked it down on the backline. Another kind of loss to a less-talented team but better game intelligence. I didn't see it anywhere but is there a reason why Richie is not coaching this team? Who is John Rooney and why is he leading this group?

    How did we lose that game. Only saw from minute 54 on but how did they score 2? Az was better than I thought they would be but we were easily running through that team from what I watched.
    Wow.

    These are the U16s. Williams is the U17 coach, Rooney is a U17 assistant. This is the next batch of U18s that will be taken over by Javier Perez after the summer.
    Zamphyr and pwip repped this.

    I want to know what professional club teams in the US are going to teach these players how to play the game in a professional manner.
