You may not know this, but Tennessee Titans linebacker Jayon Brown is a bigger football fan than you think. Wait, not that football. Ahem, European football, or soccer, as they call it in the states. Brown attended a Major League Soccer game last Saturday night where he was Nashville SC’s biggest hype man.

The striker situation is rapidly reaching crossroads. Once again, Robert Beric had a poor showing, scoring zero goals and even preventing teammates from scoring at times in the game against Toronto FC. In his hour on the field, Beric had an xG of .82, the second-highest on the team, and came away with nothing. Also in that time, he had only one shot on goal in 4 attempts. I don’t know what to do about it other than having him ride the pine. Beric has not shown the goal-scoring potential he showed last season and despite some good performances with hold-up play and the like, his lack of goals alone justifies his removal from the lineup.

CHICAGO — After finishing in first place in Group B and being one of two teams to complete the group phase with three wins, the young USMNT squad enters the quarterfinal round staring down a familiar opponent in Jamaica, currently the third-highest ranked team in Concacaf. The meeting in Dallas marks the fourth-consecutive Gold Cup in which the teams have met in the knockout phase.
Matt Turner will have a new buddy joining him on the United States Men’s National Team for the Gold Cup. Walker Zimmerman suffered an injury and will miss the rest of the tournament. This is a pretty big blow since the Nashville SC defender was a cornerstone of the USMNT backline.
