Christian on the spot

Pardon my silence this week, we've been on the road (currently in Vegas en route to the Grand Canyon). On Monday, I will kick off the latest edition of the NSC Clipboard. But for now, let's talk about Christian Pulisic being in the right place at the right time to clean up a stoppage time rebound and earn Borussia Dortmund a 3-3 share against Ingolstadt.

We've got more goals on the way soon, but let's start with a terrific Eric Lichaj strike from last night. It opened a 3-1 win over Birmingham that snapped a seven-game win drought for the Reds. His scoring play starts at the 0:15 mark.

Your USMNT Line-Up v New Zealand

I'm diggin' Acosta's move into midfield... finally. The problem is this correction comes when there's already two defensive-minded midfielders out there. Which, of course, means I'm not digging the 4-4-2 diamond formation. Naturally, we should get away with it against a Kiwis "B-" side, which will only encourage its continued use in the future.

UPDATE: Scratch all that prattle; it's a 4-3-3 shaped to my liking. Acosta is at left back, Yedlin is on right wing.
