Tijuana Brass

Assisted by US Under-19 midfielder Amando Moreno, Tijuana attacker Paul Arriola bagged the opener in a 2-1 win against Copa MX visitors Zacatepec on Tuesday night. The goal play begins at 0:35 of the first clip and the second is a post-game chat with the scorer.

Back to the old Clipboard

Now seems a good time to refresh my USMNT Clipboard, and then when we are done I will get into a few tactical suggestions. As always, this is my take on a depth chart, and not any guess at Klinsi's.

Let's start in goal, where we now have an old fashioned keepers duel. And now that we have the dual stars around, Nick Rimando moves along for a wide-eyed pupil-type.
