Your USMNT Line-Up v Mexico

Color me a bit surprised. I thought the boss might make a change or two - after all, the USMNT has mostly been so-so at this tournament and it's always good to switch something up on Mexico's prep work - but we have four new faces in the XI for this Gold Cup final. I'm most excited to see Williamson run up against El Tri, and most nervous about Bello dealing with their right side. This should be interesting.

Obviously I am ecstatic with the result. My only mild niggle is that I've been a big Williamson stan -- I was thrilled he was starting this match -- but was disappointed in his performance. Nerves?

Questions: how long will it take for Turner and Miles Robinson to move to the EPL or Bundesliga? Both of them could *immediately* improve a number of midtable clubs in both leagues. I knew both were good players but this tournament really showed exactly how good they are, which is very, very good.

This is the first time Williamson had to chase El Tri around. It ain't easy.

I'd imagine it won't be too terribly long before both have gone over. Within the next two windows, I'd think.
