Anything less and they will be eliminated from the competition.
Thanks Sal, for joining the broadcast.
We're just about ready to kick this one off in the conquered CAF Nations League, the inaugural edition of the ****y Cap Nations League and thank you Raji for joining the broadcast as well.
This game was supposed to be at Cuba, but it's being played in the Cayman Islands because the National Stadium for Cuba in Havana is still under construction and cannot be yet played.
And so, technically it's it's a neutral site and not in a way game for the U. S.
It is the CONCACAF Nations League, a brand new competition.
Hey, Sal, what is going on? All is well with me.
Hope that you are doing well also sell.
I appreciate you coming into the broadcast, and we are ready to kick this one off from the Cayman Islands 81 degrees Fahrenheit at kickoff here, the fans are still filing in from the beach, Probably.
So with the wind, the US go through to the knockout stage, you have to win your group.
There's four groups in League A, each consisting of three teams.
This is the last match day of the group stage, and the winner of the group goes through to the knockouts states.
So there'll be four teams which will make for a semi final and final in June.
The site to be determined.
We're just about ready to get this one kicked off.
Thanks so much everyone for joining me tonight on the broadcast.
Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday night, and there's a good amount amount of American fans who have made their way town to the Cayman Islands as well.
The whistle blows and we are underway from the Cayman Islands between the United States and Cuba in the CONCACAF Half Nations League, this game taking place at Truman Boudin Sports Complex in Georgetown, Cayman Islands.
Throwing taken on the far side the cross sent in by Yedlin and that is cleared out.
Remember the meeting in D. C.
And Cuba? First time these two teams met in the nation's like the result was seven.
The USS across sent it as a go.
Oh, no. They're gonna call it off sides.
Are they no good to go the U. S.
Air on the bull or less than a minute in? There's some confusion on the pitch.
I was confused myself, but the United States have taken the lead over Cuba just 40 seconds in what is start for the United States.
How about that? A quick throw.
A nice cross sent in and with the goal, it's Josh.
Sergeant, I do believe he's going to get the credit for this one.
Well, that was a nice start for the United States.
How about that, folks? Less than a minute in the U.
Already in the lead, thanks to a Josh sergeant goal, it's kind of a sloppy cold.
And the United States, they are looking for more.
They want to absolutely demolish Cuba in this game.
if they were to win this game, they would be tied on points with Canada.
Them in Canada would each have nine points, but the U.
S would go through no matter how much they went by on superior goal differential.
Joss Sergeant, meanwhile, was taken down.
No foul is called and play continues on, although the U.
S might just play it out.
Yes, they will sergeant down quite a bit of pain here.
He's clutching at his left leg.
It looks like years is clearly in quite a paint.
So here's a look at the cup of CAF Nation's legal live standing in his league in league A Group A the United States with nine points, so would be kin.
So our Canada but the United States as of now with a plus nine goal differential, Canada with a plus six and then Cuba are at the ba*****t of the table with no points in a negative 15 goal differential.
So a throwing will be taken on the far side by Cuba, and they will just play it back to the U. S.
As a nice sign of sportsmanship there.
So it goes all the way back for Brad Guzan Goo Zan will play it up with Tim Marine.
This ball played all the way out.
Yedlin A nice one Touch pass t'pol Ariel, Ariel back to England.
Yedlin plays a nice ball through the cross.
Sergeant tried to get a shot off, but it was blocked on the play.
The U. S still with possession here.
So the US now have it around midfield.
Thanks so much everyone for joining me tonight on the broadcast.
I greatly appreciate it.
And this will be a foul on the US Thank you, Anna, for joining the broadcast and Johnny as well.
I appreciate it, guys.
A calf Nations lead the inaugural edition of the tournament, The last match day off the group stage Cuba against the United States.
Already up by a score of one to nothing thanks to ago from Josh, Sergeant, in the very first minute of the game.
What it started was for the U. S.
And you know, they're expected in this one to get a big win.
And you know, they beat Cuba seven nothing in D. C.
The first time they met in the nation's league.
I'd expect a similar result tonight, this game being played in the Cayman Islands because Cuba's home stadium in Havana is under construction.
This past played out wide within.
Is Jordan Morris Morris left footed cross? Oh, no.
When I was on the end of that one, Will this ball stay hen? Not quite.
It will roll out of play the field.
Definitely a factor.
Maybe the grass a little longer than the U. S.
And Oh, but I was just saying the the taller grass almost kept that ball from going out of play on the far side.
The US having around midfield five minutes in.
They lead it one to nothing over Cuba.
Not a lot of fans at this one.
And the fans that are in attendance are pretty much all US fans that have made the trip down for a nice little mini vacation.
10 in the Cayman Islands, the temperature at kickoff, 81 degrees.
Have a nice day at the beach and then watch the US tryto clinched their spot into the knockout stage of the CONCACAF Nations League.
He wins a throwing out of this one sergeant here quickly have to throw the cross sent in.
And that ball will be cleared out by Cuba.
Or at least an attempt to get it out all the way back to midfield. The U.
S. Dominating in possession.
Thanks, Karam, for joining the broadcast.
What is going on? Thanks, Eric, as well for hopping in here on SportsCastr.
I greatly appreciate it.
What's up, Eric? Thanks for coming into the stream.
I greatly appreciated, man.
Hope you're having a good Tuesday night.
What soccer tournament going on Now this is the CONCACAF Nations lead Karam.
It's a new competition this year.
They're following what Europe did with Thea with the UFO Nations League on.
Basically, it's to replace Friendly so, you know, to replace international friendlies where the games don't mean anything Now there's a competition to it because their oh, this cross cents in, they'll be cleared out.
And the Sean from Western McKenny is headed out of play by Rezo near the Golan Western McKenney with a golden chance there.
Oh, really? I'd beat you in SportsCastr Fancy football league this week.
Oh, yeah, you're right.
You're right, Eric.
Yeah, I did I did? I forgot who I was up against.
But yes, the CONCACAF Nations League does matter because it has implications on both World Cup qualifying and Gold Cup qualifying.
So this is the last game of the group stage, and the U.
S have to win to get through to the knockout stage.
It's 34 groups consisting of three teams and only the top team out of each group goes through the U.
If they were to get a win tonight would be identical would be even on points with Canada.
But they would have superior goal differential and would go through that way.
This is offsides called the semifinals and final of the CONCACAF Nations League will not be till June at a date to be determined and the site still to be determined So and then after the semi final and final of the nation's league, then in August of next year, I know we're looking far into the future.
But in August of next year, that's when the World Cup qualifying will get underway for the United States, as they look to and thio make this time the 2022 FIFA world Cup in Qatar.
So we got ourselves a foul on Cuba.
It's a foul, Uh, right around midfield.
So free kick taken quickly by the United States now.
And also a quick note for you, Love.
It's on the U. S.
In the starting lineup tonight.
He is now a Nashville S C player, Nashville and Inter Miami.
Two teams expansion teams coming into the MLS the next season, and the expansion draft was today in love.
It's was taken by Nashville.
So how about that? He found out the day he was playing with the U.
On international duty that his new club team is Nashville S C.
I'll be interested to see how Nashville and Miami both do in there first in their first team in their first excuse me.
A season in MLS, as Nashville is Ah NIU is not their new team and MLS, obviously, but they have already been a team in the U.
Meanwhile, um, Inter Miami's a brand new team, their owner being David Beckham.
10 minutes in the United States, up one to nothing.
I know my soccer stuff pretty well.
You're impressed. Yeah.
This is a cross sent in and that will be cleared.
What an opportunity.
There, Jordan and Morris trying to send that bowline.
Now it's out. The Western McKenney.
McKenney sends this to the far side.
Well, yelling get there. No, he won't.
But it will be a corner kick coming up for the United States, thanks to Richard for joining the broadcast.
What is going on? Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday night.
United States taking on Cuba in the CONCACAF Nations League, This game taking place in the Cayman Islands as, um, Cuba's home stadium is under construction so they can't play there quite yet.
So being in swinging ball here, left footed in swinger, the corner kick sent in that will be headed out of the box yet ill and sends one in on goal.
But he hit it off of his own teammate.
But the United States still haven't, and a foul will be called a late whistle.
But the foul was called.
So will be a free kick at the edge of the box coming up for the United States.
The foul on a brave Yeah, I was a little bit of a heavy touch there, but I ended up winning the foul.
Free kick right outside the box for the United States.
It will be an insulin.
You're coming from Paul Ariel.
Aerial taking the free kick here.
And now the referee will blow his whistle.
We have a stop it.
She'll talk to some of the players here in the box, watching out for the pushing and shoving going on.
All right, Now the whistle is blown.
Here comes the service, and that will be blocked by the wall.
So the wall was right there doing his job for Cuba, and it will be a throwing up from the far side.
Possessing at the back are the United States.
It's over to Tim Marine, and now this will be out of play and or a foul actually called on the United States.
So a Cuba free kick coming up and coming up to take this will be Sanchez, the goalkeeper.
He'll come way out of his box to take the free kick.
13th minute here from the Cayman Islands.
The United States, one Cuban ill.
This small plane back.
If Mexico were too, win tonight against Bermuda winner tie against Bermuda.
Then the US would play Honduras in the CONCACAF Nations league semifinals in Mexico would take on Costa Rica.
Most of us are expecting a US Mexico final.
But, hey, you never know.
If Mexico are somehow toe lose to Bermuda tonight, then the US would face off against Mexico, believe it or not.
In the semifinals, this one played out Cuba throwing, taking place on the far side.
But it was a nice tackle in there from Tim Marine well, and off the throw Yedlin steps in.
Now it's to the other side with it.
Rodriguez, the intended target in this gonna be a foul called on the U. S.
A dangerous position here for Cuba.
Rodriguez, the one who went down the foul, called on love.
It's in a really good opportunity coming up for Cuba.
Let's see on the replay, Yeah, looks like he clipped them that cooked.
So 15 minutes in one. Nothing.
Us but Cuba have a nice opportunity here, Brad Guzan setting up his wall, and it looks like it will be Hernandez to take the free kick, although they have three guys lining up here at the ball so who knows? Yes, there will be Hernandez Thean Swinger.
It's a good ball sent in, headed out by Tim Marine, another header from Jordan Morris in a corner kick coming up for the Cubans.
You know, it was a nice ball from Hernandez.
He put it into a dangerous area and Tim Ream was there, and Jordan Morris sent it out of play for a corner.
So now the inswinger will be sent in by a brave from the far side is actually a short corner kick now Sentence a Hernandez Hernandez back Awad and an offside is called on Cuba.
A wasted opportunity there for Cuba, and it was Paradise Island in an offside position.
Let's see on the replay here, I don't know about that.
That was That was a close one, but I thought he might have been on.
I can see why para Ella was frustrated.
I was thinking right when the foul occurred that there's no way paradox could be arguing cause he's way on the other side of the field.
But looking on that replay, he does have a case, no doubt.
All right, timbering with it past midfield on this, Brown and Greenfield a lot of dirt and divots in the on the pitch.
That's a sloppy pass.
They're from long.
But luckily for the U.
It was a bad touch from a brave in the U.
S. One of throwing.
That's a good ball sent in.
Here's Yedlin right outside the box.
He almost gives it away.
The U S Still with possession, here's you'll place that white all want touched by yelling right there now rolled on trying to get it into I believe our Eola That was failed.
S went right back and yelling, The will be in an offside position.
I spilled a play there from the U. S.
But eventually offsides is called.
I don't know that one was Hunt was offside, either in these assistant referees on both sides of the field, with some questionable decisions so far tonight, to say the least ears years.
All right, this throwing all the way into the box.
Now it's at the edge for Cuba.
A one timer takes a deflection, goes on with the save.
Wow, I hope that wasn't the easiest of saves to make for Brad. Goes on.
He was diving to his right side.
But that ball was deflected on its way in.
And you had that quickly reach out the other way.
And Cuba are kept off the score sheet.
That could have been a scare for the U. S. Nice ball.
Played through here is Jordan Morris Morris sent to the cross the one timer and that will be blocked.
Josh, Sergeant looking for his second goal of the night.
But we'll have to wait a little while longer anyways.
I took a massive deflection, I believe off of West and McKenney But Goossen was prepared down there to make the save three.
Well, now that swinging corner, son, just trying to get it out.
This ball takes a few deflections.
All that's a gold mine clearance wanted chance there for the United States.
Now this shot goes wide right ago.
What a chance for the U. S.
That last chance coming from areola.
The original one from Aaron Long.
What an opportunity.
And what a goal line.
Clear or no, it wasn't goal line.
Yeah, the 2nd 1 was a gold mine clearance.
Actually by I believe that was bias.
What a nice job that could have easily been to nothing.
Us but Cuba have other plans.
20 minutes in one. Nothing.
The United States leader over Cuba from the Cayman Islands.
This ball will deflect.
No, it won't deflect.
It's a US throwing, throwing, coming up that ball off of Ramos.
Here's Western McKenney since this ball in.
But that goes past.
Everybody yelling will still get their ball sent in on the ground and that will go out on the far side and a Cuba throwing there.
United States throwing coming up.
Yedlin setting any cross.
It's redirected, but just off target.
Wow! And a goal kick coming up went off the face of Josh.
Sergeant there almost turned into a goal scoring opportunity.
Just a little bit of light of the gold.
You might remember.
His ah goal off the face a couple months ago almost could have been a similar situation there.
All right, United States played up Josh.
Sergeant beat his defender.
Sergeant cuts it to his left foot.
Now he'll hold up behind the box.
Now place it in the middle towards Western Mackenzie Mackenzie sends a ball in McKenney.
That one headed out by Cuba, but only as far as love.
It's now it's on Back with Tim.
Marine reign over too Love, It's back.
Tareen Now the U.
S Just taking it easy for a little bit here, tryingto possessing.
Take advantage of any opportunity given Erin along with it on the far side.
Plays it up in our Eola.
But that ball from Cuba is sent in on Leah's far as Tim Marine Tim Ream out to Western McKenney McKenney outside of the right foot.
It was a good idea, but Cuba was ready for it.
This ball played up, settled down by you'll.
Now McKenney will switch fields to the far side.
Here is you'll here is Tim.
Marine Marine will take advantage of some of the space here now plays without wide and the cross sent in by love.
It's that will be cleared out of the box by Cuba and off goes Parad.
Ella powered Ayla now about triple team.
What will he do with it? It will be off of him.
So a US throwing coming up past the midway mark of the first half thanks so much everyone for joining the broadcast tonight a greatly appreciate it.
Hope you are enjoying this ball played out wide.
Now this one cut in by love.
It's back to you'll You'll toe love.
It's to you, will.
You will send this ball.
And yes, he will.
It's a good ball, but just out of reach of Paul Ariola, the attempted header there now Cuba trying to clear it out.
This one goes all the way past midfield, and there was Aaron.
Walk us back with the ball.
They've had pretty much all of the possession so far.
This is nice ballpoint over the top, but Jordan Morris is offside.
It would have been a great operate to me.
Therefore, Jordan Morris had he been on side, but he was not.
Let's see on the replay here, he seemed on side to me.
These assistant referees are having a rough night so far.
This one goes back to Sanchez, the goalie who played to the far side.
Here come Cuba, this one, a nice ball sent in the one timer sent back across from Ray's raise to Rodriguez Rodriguez back to Hernandez Hernandez.
Far side to a brave.
Can Cuba get a good chance in here that cross sent in down low, cleared out by the U.
But Cuba regains possession.
S the ones back defending.
But that ball, it has too much on it.
And the coach of Cuba frustrated there.
25 minutes in the United States, one Cuban ill.
This one will be headed out by bias.
Now it's back with McKenney McCann.
He plays it down to Jordan Morris.
This time he is on site.
Now it's McKenney back to love.
It's love. It's Doreen.
Tim Green plays it across the back.
Here's Aaron Long.
One up to Cristian Roldan.
Oh, this bawling for joining us.
He's gonna go one on one.
The shoddy scars and go the United States.
It's Jordan Morris who doubles the lead for the U. S.
And it's to nothing.
They lead it over Cuba and the U.
Faithful who have come out to the Cayman Islands to support their country.
Tonight you can hear them loud and proud and Jordan Morris slotting that one into the back of the net, the MLS Cup champion once again and took a deflection on the way.
Morris, one on one with Sanchez and Morris made no mistake about it.
Right footed shot placed in the not all the way to the bottom right corner, but past the goalkeeper to the right side on the ground.
What a shot by Morris and to nothing.
Lead that gold coming in the 26 minute.
Oh, how about this shot from way out that will be, well, wide.
Cuba trying a shot from deep.
Espino, with the effort and a quick goal kick played by the US out to Aaron along Long, will play it back into the middle.
Now it's Ah, Tim Ream Ream.
Back out to the far side with long, Long has space and time ship.
He'll chip this one up.
Karim took it down nicely.
It's well of its up to Mackenzie Mackenzie and ice ball over the top.
Here's Jordan Morris again.
Morris tried to play across that sign, but it was blocked on the play by bias and a corner kick coming up nonetheless here for the United States.
The block by Ramos.
So a corner kick coming up that time Morris looking the cross it it wasn't a bad idea, but we're almost made sure you got a block to that one.
So it will be Paul Ariel A to take the corner.
This one's all right footed in Swinger. The header.
The bar was a Josh sergeant who got his head to that one.
No, I believe it was Aaron along.
This couldn't get the direction on that one.
He had plenty of power, but just not quite the accuracy.
And look at the league.
A group A CONCACAF Nations leave live standings.
The United States would win the group if this result holds there on nine points along with Canada.
But they have superior goal differential.
United States with plus 10 Canada plus six.
This one back to Aaron.
A long, long well, he plays along to Western McKenney.
But McKenney cannot quite keep it in play, so Cuba will take the throat.
The throne will be taken here by more at home, and the throw is down the line once again, off of the U. S.
And a man is down for Cuba here.
But he is back on his feet.
That would be raise looks like he's all right.
Taking the throw here is more than home.
It's United States.
Getting pressured here on their own side of the field in Cuba will be the ones to win the throw in that last one off the foot of Western McKenney.
And we were at the half hour mark from the Cayman Islands, the United States leading two to nothing over Cuba, this one cleared out by ream another throwing coming up for Cuba.
You'll throw this one down the line and we'll Morris save this one.
Yes, he will, but he gives it right to Cuba.
Here is Hernandez Hernandez gets the cross attempt in.
But right there for the United States was you'll and the corner kick coming up for Cuba.
So this will be an in swinger coming in.
This is the second corner of the game for Cuba.
This is immediately cleared out in out of bounds.
It goes so another throwing coming up, throwing by more at home.
Here is the header that is cleared out of danger by Paul Areola.
Now, Josh Sergeant, trying to get to this one, it will go on back with love, It's love.
It's to ream ream under some pressure.
Here, you'll get it up.
But it's taken right back by Cuba, and this ball played through but too much on it.
And I got by everybody over the goal line for a goal kick.
No, no, it's been dominant for the United States so far.
As you would expect.
There's still definitely more goals coming.
You just have the feeling there shouldn't be any ways.
It's a risky past.
Their back to you'll.
You'll did well, though, fighting off the pressure, getting it back to Aaron Long.
Long place Allied with Tim Ream Ream back to Goossen.
That's not the best of passes back.
Who's on lot to get rid of it. Us.
A little shaky in the back here, but not panicking at all.
Now it's back with ream.
Ream plays it up.
It's tried to get it up to Jordan.
Morris cannot this well played back toe Sanchez the goalkeeper.
He'll play it up to around midfield.
Cuba now have it.
Nice ball played over the top, but a little bit too much on it.
It was the right idea, but I will play for a U. S.
Throwing that pass intended for Ray's love It's will take the throw into Aaron Long or Tim Ream rather out so long.
Now it's Yedlin us have it across the back.
33rd minute, two to nothing.
Lead it. Thanks everyone for joining the broadcast tonight.
Here on SportsCastr Long plays it upto areola arial out wide to DeAndre Yedlin.
You'll overto Long Long will send this one to the other side, switching fields, and that is a foul right there.
No doubt about it.
And look at this now, some pushing and shoving going on love.
It's took exception to the Faneuil by more at home, and now yellow card will be given some more I own.
How about that? And now Cuba putting their case love It's did not like that fell committed by Maura Hone on him.
It wasn't cheap shot after the past love.
It's got up and went right after him.
A little shove right there, and Maura Hone shoved him right back before the referee came in and separated them and some frustration from the Cuban fence.
But I do have to say, considering the games in the Cayman Islands, there are a good amount of US fans who have made the trek down or perhaps live there.
You never know people have to move.
There might be some Americans living in the Cayman Islands who came out toe support their country tonight.
It will be Tim Marine to take this free kick.
Rain plays it across the back over to Aaron along long to Yedlin Yedlin within 10 minutes plus stoppage time left in the first half.
Greenback to goes on Now it's Ah Tim Marine.
Gymboree Mount wide with love, It's love.
It's plays it towards the middle chest and down by Josh Sergeant Western McKenney with the karate kick here back towards the U.
S. Gold. The center is a risky one.
But Aaron, along to the rescue man.
Not sure exactly what um, Western Makeni was thinking there.
It's been a bit sloppy these last few minutes for the United States.
This is a quick throwing here, Sergeant Sergeant is taken down, but no vowels.
Gold all ball, says the referee.
Sergeant took a little while to go down with a touch.
Stella's from Greg Burkhalter, the U S coach from on the sideline.
I will say Quick, quick, Throw in.
Taken nine minutes left in the half, it's out wide with Aaron Law.
S wasn't Now they switch fields So the U.
S there next competitive game after tonight will be not until June in the nation's league semifinal and hopefully final.
They will have friendlies against someone in March.
Here is Tim Green and then, after the CONCACAF Nations League knockout stage, it will be World Cup qualifying for them next fall or the end of summer. Really.
Here's ream ream down to love.
It's is clearly taken out there.
No problem here for the referee to call that one easy call.
There he was, taken down on the play by Rodriguez, and now the U.
Will have a free kick coming up in a pretty dangerous position as well.
Just a reckless challenge there from Rodriguez.
That's not the first time.
Love, it's has been taken down tonight and it looks like he'll be the one to take the corner to the free kick.
I should say as well, although they got two guys now lined up to take it.
The other one would be Paul area Lola.
So this will be a left footed in swinger.
This ball, the header.
Oh, it's saved by such as what? A save by Sanchez.
The header coming from Christian rolled on and boy was that a powerful header rolls on had plenty of power on it, just not quite the accuracy.
But with the amount of power yet on that one, that could have been a goal.
But Sanchez was prepared to make the save another corner kick coming up for the United States.
It will be Ariola to take it.
It'll be a right footed outswinger coming up here.
This ball, the header by long cleared out on Leah's faras yelling, yelling in the box out.
So long, long sense of the mentally shouldn't took the shot long still has it now, this ballpoint over the top, it takes a deflection.
It's into the back of the net.
But did Morris get the final touched in an offside position? No, you did not.
The United States of America.
Three to nothing.
George Morris have a smile on his face here taking away that call from his teammate Aron along.
It's just the strikers instinct to get in touch on anything coming in on that.
I thought Morris might have been in an offside position, but no, sir.
Yeah, he was on.
Even if that ball was over the line or wasn't over the line, I should say, um and yeah, Morris did get a touch on that before the ball across the line, so the goal will be credited to Jordan Morrison the 39th minute.
It took a pretty massive deflection as well, on the way, and the US extend the lead.
Now it's three nothing.
This is what we expected here in the 40th minute.
A foul, meanwhile, called on the United States will be a free kick heading out the other way for Cuba.
Love, it's the one committing the foul.
So this freekick played back to Sanchez and Sanchez will kick this one.
That will make its way all the way from goalie goalie all the way to Brad goes on five minutes to go in the first half, coming up at the half.
Make sure you stay tuned.
I'll get you caught up on all the first half highlights and also get some ****ysis in for you on what I think of the first half in what needs to improve, perhaps in the second half, or what we're looking for in half.
Number two, Really? And that is a foul called here.
Ray is the one who was fouled, and he's arguing for a card.
All right, 41st minute, This ball Centene headed out by Cuba.
They're trying to clear it now.
The pressure on from Western McKenney, this ball will be cleared up, but that is not the best of touches from Rays, and the throne will be taken by the United States right around midfield.
They'll throw it back with Tim Ream ream upto love.
It's with a nice ball into Jordan.
Morris Morris plays in a cross and keep trying to clear it out.
But Atlanta Josh Sergeant Sergeants ball takes a few deflections on the way and goes, Why the net but is off of Oh, I thought that was off of Cuba.
That's what Sergeant is arguing.
But they're going to say it's a goal kick for the for the Cubans.
How about that? I thought it clearly took a deflection there.
The officiating crew has been questionable.
Tonight I will sign 42nd minute.
Sanchez will take the gold kick for Cuba.
Cuba taking their time.
The goal kick is they have been running like crazy tonight on defending for the majority of this game.
And what we got here, Hernandez, it looks like is adjusting.
Is socks perhaps in cleats? 43rd minute here on SportsCastr, the first game I broadcast of the CONCACAF Nations.
Like I would have loved to have done the U.
And Canada, um, the other night on Friday.
But I had to do my high school's football game.
So I ended up doing the Celtics that night.
But I would have done us Canada.
But I'll definitely come June.
It's a while from now.
Yes, but come June, I will be doing the semifinal Nations league game for the United States.
So I'll be looking forward to that 43rd minute, this goal kick Well past midfield, this ball kicked high in the air, The header one by Cuba Man's Parad.
Ella's double teams, the US win the ball and love.
It's is once again taking down in the foul called So a free kick here for the U. S.
There's a nice job there in the first place from you'll to keep it in play and then love.
It's taken the contact here is Aaron along rain memory with it past midfield.
That's another nice ball down the left side.
Morris with a cross sent in Yedlin kept in with his head, but that will eventually go out of play.
Cuba look to take a quick throwing, they do so down the line this won't chipped up, and the foul is gonna be called on the U. S.
Ray is the one who went down.
Pablo Sanchez is the coach of Cuba.
He was the assistant coach at the Gold Cup for the Cuban national team.
Now the head coach, This is back for Tim Marine.
These not not the center back.
He is the listed as the right back in this one, but he's kind of playing like a center back at times, and, well, you won't be able to keep this one in. Yes, he is.
But it's out too.
Cuba, and they will not try to get it out there.
Ends and that will help because love, it's commits a foul.
Let's see how much time is gonna be added on to the end of this first half.
The answer to that is one minute thanks, Alex, for joining the broadcast.
What is going on? Hope you're having a good night, Alex.
It's the inaugural edition of the conflict after Nations League.
The last game, I should say of the group stage.
If the US win, then what's going on? Alex, welcome into the stream.
If the US win, then they're on to the knockout stage.
Two most likely face Honduras in the semifinals, and the U.
S are leading three to nothing over Cuba here as we approach halftime.
How about that? Caps and Bruins game with the game? Yeah, It was a great game.
The Bruins found the way that choke again.
I thought I thought we beat you, Alex.
Ah, that was so disappointed when the Bruins lost that shoot up.
But yeah, the Bruins are actually playing right now, so I've been checking in on that game a foul called on Cuba, and that should just about do it here for the first half and there is the double whistle.
Yeah, Rana did have a nasty goal.
That was a great shootout goal.
That will do it for the first half.
45 minutes in the books.
Jordan Morris has two goals for himself tonight, and the United States laid it three to nothing.
45 minutes down, 45 to go.
I'll be back for the halftime report.
You're on SportsCastrs, so make sure you stay tuned the US halfway to punching their ticket into the knockout stage of the Concord CAF Nations League.
All right, Welcome back, everybody.
Let's get you caught up on the first half.
Highlights the U. S. Going on the board.
Just 40 seconds in.
Josh Sergeant getting in on the action very early on.
And that really set the tone for the rest of this one.
Had many good chances there in the first half, another one coming in the eighth minute where DeAndre Yedlin sent one in on goal, but that was headed out of played by Rezo.
And then later in the 21st minute, on the corner kick.
What an opportunity.
Once again, it was for the United States.
And it was a goal line clearance by Cuba in the end.
And then Ari Ola's effort went, Why did the net what a great chance that was for the U S.
Get on the board that time.
But they would get on the board later on in the first half.
I will promise you that.
Let's take you to the 26 minute.
Jordan Morris, getting on the board for the first time tonight, had himself one on one with the goalkeeper and slaughtered that one bottom right corner, right past the keeper.
And it was a nice shot by Morris toe.
Put the US up to nothing done in the 39th minute.
It was Another girl from the US took an awkward deflection on the, uh, ball sent in from Aaron Long Morris Chapter din.
He has a brace already three. Nothing.
The United States lied it at halftime.
Do I like LaVar ball? No, I do not.
I do not like LaVar ball.
No, I would not buy big baller brand merchandise.
No, I would not.
So yeah, the US lead it three.
Nothing at the half.
This is what we all expected.
But how about Jordan and Morris in that first half is just nine days after he won the MLS Cup with the Seattle Sounders.
You're a fan of B B B.
I mean, I'm not just because of LaVar ball, so but yeah, Jordan Morris.
Not just good with Seattle, he also is producing with the national team.
As we're seeing tonight.
He's a big part of why the U.
S are up three to nothing.
When he says something dumb, he cry.
So more action is coming your way.
The second half will be coming up shortly as I expect the U.
To at least double this lead in the final 45 minutes.
They be Cuba seven.
Nothing when they were at home a few weeks ago and this week are tonight.
I should say they are up three.
Nothing at the half.
I'd expect a similar result to that of their first meeting in the United States.
Ah, get shelling by the U.
Fans as well in the Cayman Islands, by the way.
So they're up three. Nothing.
S. Fans enjoying themselves including myself.
I will be back for more of the your halftime report in a moment as we get closer to the second half Kickoff.
You're on, SportsCastr.
All right, everybody.
The United States lied.
Nothing In the Cayman Islands.
The second half kickoff is coming up next year on SportsCastrs, so don't go anywhere.
Make sure you stay tuned for that as the U. S.
Look, Toe punch their ticket into the knockout stage of the inaugural edition off the concrete cab nations.
Lee, I'll be right back, folks.
All right, everybody, it is time for the start of the second half here on SportsCastr.
Thanks so much for joining me tonight.
Hope you're enjoying your Tuesday night as the United States lied Cuba by a score of three to nothing as we get ready for the start of the second half.
While Jordan Morris had two goals, Josh sergeant had a goal for himself.
You know, this was expected from the US to, uh um to get out to a lead like they have here by a score of three to nothing, but and I expect them to do nothing less in the second half.
You know, I definitely expect them to come out with high intensity and you know they beat Cuba.
Seven. Nothing at home.
So I think this game should be a six or seven.
Nothing result in 45 minutes time.
When this game comes to an end, will see the United States making a substitution.
Tyler Boyd coming on for Jordan Morris.
So Boyd on for Morris here.
So Horace gets two goals, and that's it for him.
So Boyd is on for the United States, who's definitely also another one of many promising young stars for the United States that could make an impact in the future.
The second half underway from Truman Boudin Sports Complex in Georgetown, Cayman Islands, the USA and White Cuba in red for this one.
Oh, I wasn't drawing.
I was updating my my, uh, notes here, um, for the lineups, Alex.
No, I was crossing out Jordan Morris and filling in Tyler Boyd, making that sure that lineup change was noted.
No, I wasn't drawing 46 minutes Us possessing at the back here is Aaron long long over to yelling.
Yet Glenn's first touch wasn't the best of all still in the air.
Yedlin slips, but it will be.
And it will be off of the U.
So a Cuba throw into coming up throne will be taken on the near side.
And what do we got here? The referee is gonna have a discussion here with DeAndre Yedlin and a brave telling them.
Tow. Knock it off.
So that's why the throwing was held up there.
The throne will be taken down the line. It goes.
There was Aaron along to deal with it.
Thanks, Alex. I appreciate you stopping by.
You have a nice day as well.
I will see you next time.
So now a fell is called on.
It looks like Christian rolled on.
So it will be another Cuba free kick.
Rezo to take it.
Brad Guzan would love to keep the shut out that he currently has.
But this will land in front of gold.
Luzon dives to make the save.
That could have been a really nice chance there for power and Ella and thank you.
Methanol for a joint in the for joining the broadcast.
I appreciate that.
Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday night and it's the 2019 Concha CAF nations leak You're on SportsCastr.
S can hold onto this lead, which they should comfortably be able to do, then they would move on to the knockout stage.
This one will go out of play.
Not much rhythm to start the second half.
Now with it is our Eola and he will be clipped from behind by a brave.
So a free kick for the United States.
Just a little over three minutes into the second half.
Tim Marine with it this one played back by, rolled on over to Aaron Long.
Long will switch fields to the other side, too.
Nice ball played down the line.
Here's Taylor boy who just came in in the second half.
Boyd, Place it out.
12 back to Boyd.
Tyler Boyd will switch fields to Yedlin, yelling with the header.
Us still with possession.
Here is Aaron Long.
Now it's the Edlund.
Arial plays a nice ball.
Can you get to it? Yes.
Roland gets to it now The volley.
Oh, and that will go sky high and over the bar from west and my gunny.
He was winding up for the spectacular there but couldn't quite execute in the end.
So Sanchez will take the gold kick here for Cuba.
Just five minutes into the second half, the United States lied at three to nothing over Cuba.
That's a nice turn right there from Rodriguez of Cuba, and you will now play it Cuba across the back.
It's now out wide with resources so back to the goalkeeper Sanchez Sanchez, back to Rizzo.
Reserve the Sanchez, the United States attacking front, putting pressure on Cuba.
Now it's all the way up with Reyes, and this will be off of the U.
Off of Paul Arriola, in fact, for a Cuba throwing quick throwing taken not the best of first touches there from powered Parad Ella in the US win possession back McCann e with the one touch past.
Now it's outlined with Areola and Orilla, frustrated with himself.
There was trying to play it through the Josh sergeant, but just not the kind of has he wanted there, as it made its way all the way back for Sanchez in that one.
Not anywhere in particular, not a play off the foot of parody.
Ayla Us quickly take the throne, splayed across the back with their and long reminder.
What the league a group a Kong CAF nation's legal live standings look like The United States would go through to the knockout stage as the first place finisher.
They have nine points along with Canada.
But the United States have superior goal differential with a plus 11 now compared to Canada's plus six.
And Cuba are in the ba*****t of the standings with no points and a minus 17 goal differential.
It's been a tough run for them here, so they will get relegated to league be for the next edition of the Concord Cap Nations League, which is probably where they belong.
I'm not saying that in a disrespectful way, but you know it is tough because League A does consist of the 12 best **** caf teens.
You're probably thinking why on earth this conch is Ah, Cuba in league, eh? Well, think about it yet to get the 12 best teams in Kong.
Caf? In league, eh? Which is tough to do Rodriguez with the shot, it takes a deflection.
No problem for goose on because you can come up with six solid teams.
But then, you know it's tough because there are gonna be teams in there who are who are, ah Week, who are weaker.
And, you know, that's why there's relegation promotion.
You're giving the teams to succeed in Group B, a chance in Group A.
And then, you know, these teams that are relegated can try to make their way back up.
There are four leagues, believe it or not, yes, leading the is pretty bad quality soccer, you know, just the Caribbean island's pretty much that you never heard it.
Here's Western McKenney on the left side.
Now taking a dribble into the box sends this ball in, but it's still with nicely by bias, and you will now play it on up with Reyes.
Reyes is now taken down and foul, so a foul is called Ah, free kick for Cuba, you know, So the U.
With it, the postseason will officially get underway for many of these United States players who are MLS based anyway.
But it's interesting for some of the players on the team, Um, like love.
It's, for example, whose team didn't make the playoffs and so they've been off since the beginning of October, and suddenly coming in for these two games against Canada in Cuba must be interesting.
But for all the players who made deep playoff runs, you know they've been pretty much full force going at it for a week after week.
And after this game, that will be it.
But there are some European based players remember, like Western McKinney Christian Pulisic not playing with the U.
In these ah, to conquer CAF Nations League games.
That's probably Chelsea telling them, Thio telling the us now you're not gonna play him for that So the throne will be taken back to Aaron Long.
Aaron Long will play this one in the air and the header one by Cuba.
Not much going here.
The second half so far, it's actually Yeah, they're saying it's an injury to Christian Pulisic.
Who knows how bad that injury truly is? But, um, 50 fifth minute, 10 minutes into the second half, Thanks so much everyone for joining me tonight on the broadcast throwing taken Western McKenney well played on back with Tim Reid.
Now here is Yedlin rolled on nice ball into Sergeant sergeants.
First touch makes its way for Paul Areola Areola tried to get it over to rolled on, but that was taken away by Cuba.
Now the Cubans trying to start a break here, Rodriguez will play it off of the U.
So Cuba throwing coming up that one went off of love.
This throne goes down the line, love.
It's plays it up.
But the whistle a whistle is blown by the referee.
What is the call here? Oh, the ball was out of bounds on the far side.
Okay, so a throwing taken by Cuba 57th minute this game.
Really tough to watch here in the second.
Have I'm doing my best here on SportsCastr I really I'm a diehard US men's national team.
National soccer team fan.
So I tried to cover all their games possible.
So here is Aaron long over Tareen Rien plays of that applied back to love.
It's with a nice ball over Yedlin Yellin's first touch.
We'll be a little bit too far, He tried.
It was a good effort trying to keep that ball in play, but couldn't quite do so.
So a gold kick coming up for Cuba 58 minutes.
Sanchez to take the goal.
Kick us looking for their first goal of the second half year.
This ball will make its way up and that will be Cuba claiming it's there.
And yes, the referee will give it to them.
The U S thought otherwise Bias takes the throw.
Here's the header from Marine.
Now it's DeAndre Yedlin.
Yedlin plays it back.
This one sent up the field and getting a foot in There was, I believe, a Ramos throwing coming up for the U.
So Reggie Cannon's gonna come on for the U S.
Can you give them? Ah, Spring of life here.
It must be tough to playing games like these.
Reggie Cannon coming on for DeAndre.
Yedlin yelling Put in the night shift.
He's a little bit.
He's in a little bit of a limp eras.
He had said the sideline, the second substitution of the game for the U. S.
Can infer Yedlin.
And now Cuba will make their first substitution of the game.
And that would be Let's see who is coming in for Cuba.
Let you know as soon as I find out that is their first substance.
The first substitution of the game.
And we're now in hour into this one.
The United States leading Cuba three to nothing.
A substitution was yelling out for cannon.
We're still getting ah, trying to get clarification here on the Cuba substitution.
It is Al Mellow in, out for Perez.
All right, so Paris in for all mellow and this will redirect.
So a corner kick coming up for the U.
What can they make of this opportunity here? 61st minute? Can they get on the board for the first time? This? Half more substitutes are warming up for the United States, by the way.
We'll see when that last substitute is used because I expected to be.
This is an outswinger lands for love.
Clear the way now.
Some consecutive headers here eventually cleared out by Rezo.
And here's Tyler Boyd Boyd on the far side.
Now going towards the middle of the pitch tries to get it out wide to Paul.
Ariel couldn't quite do so, but getting a foot in there is Reggie Cannon cannons rolled on now wide with cannon.
Cannon has it on the near side.
Reggie Cannon to rolled on.
Rolled on to you'll.
You'll back to ream Dream over the long.
Now it's Christian rolled on and that ball almost take annoyed by Cuba.
Good, not quite.
The U S still have it.
Now it's Tyler Boy, and that is not the best of all it's played in.
But it will go off of Cuba for a United States throwing here the throwing taken by Reggie Cannon and it goes to Jeff, you'll you'll back to Aaron Long Long will play across the back.
Here's to Marine now.
This is a nice ball sent in by Roldan.
But it was a little bit behind boy there and we'll go over the end line for a goal kick.
So it must be a tough situation here for the United States, as they were up three to nothing.
But then again, then again, the cir***stances where you're up three to nothing and you know you're getting through to the knockout stage.
And you know, at this point, nothing really matters.
You got the coal in the first minute.
From then on It was all the United States as we expected it to being now be a Cuba corner kick coming up. It will be an in swinger.
Here's a good chance for Cuba.
It will be a short corner kick the ball sent in.
But that is by everybody and all the way to the other sideline and out of play for a United States throwing now the 64th minute in this one, one plays it up to you.
Rain back to Jeff.
You'll you'll out wide to Aaron along long to Cannon.
Reggie Cannon plays it all the way back to Brad.
Goes on a lot of goo zan up to Tim Ream.
I could fall asleep from this.
Honestly, this ball played high in the air and eventually bounces down, taken in possession by a brave a brave over to Paris.
The substitute that ball from Rodriguez intended for Paris couldn't quite get it through, and now it will be a US throwing coming up.
I think Spectators like myself in American fans would be disappointed if this game war tend and a three nil score line.
I was expecting more here.
I think the U s gotta pick up the intensity year.
I understand the cir***stance, but still I still expect them to go all the way and compete for the full 90 minutes, giving it everything they've got.
Here's Reggie Cannon Kin and now plays it in the middle.
Rolled on back to Tim Marine.
It's here in long at watch areola Areola plays in the middle.
Now it's our threats.
You Kanan Kanan sends us cross in back post run left for it to go and go, Josh.
Sergeant puts the United States up for nothing.
He gets a second goal the game.
And there it is for the U.
That first goal of the second half and it's four to nothing.
Josh sergeant putting it into the back of the net.
It was across sent in from Reggie Kin and and then a nice job by Tyler Boyd.
Keep that one in play and with the back heel toe sergeant setting him up, Sergeant, left footed, shot wide open, sent it into the back of the net, and it's four to nothing.
Lead here in the 66th minute, Sergeant, with his second goal of the night.
Now, looking for a hat trick.
Morris, both with a brace and plays resumed here.
This one brought up by a brave down the left side.
And that will go off of Cannon a Cuba throwing coming up is back to Sanchez.
Almost blocked there by Sergeant came awfully close.
Yeah, This 11 by Cuba and taking out there on the play is I believe that was a brave.
So a free kick coming up for the Cubans Fell called on Western McKenney.
This ball quickly played by Cuba and the U.
Will let that one go out for a goal kick.
Cuba thought otherwise.
They were arguing for a corner kick, but it's not given Rodriguez making the run.
We're at the midway point of of the second half.
The United States lead it four to nothing over Cuba.
Here on SportsCastr, this one played out wide.
Now it's over the top.
It's a nice ball sent in.
It's now a cross in a little too much on it.
But Reggie can't our Western McKenney.
My apologies will still make his way there.
And that will be off of Cuba.
A corner kick coming up for the United States.
And that will be it for Western McKenney.
So on will come Morales.
Oh, morale is coming on here for the United States.
Their last substitution of the game here.
Morale is on from a Kenny.
All right, Morales, who plays in the Bundesliga in Germany.
So so does Western McKenney.
So two bonus legal players replacing each other there.
There's a nice ball sent and a bone of a shot. Save Sanchez.
What a save there by Sanchez.
Wow, that was a nice quick reaction.
Save it was ah, bullet of a shot.
Therefore, morale is Morales could have scored just 15 seconds, maybe even less after coming into the game.
One occasion that would have been So here comes another corner kick for the United States.
It's headed out right at the edge of the box and that will be kicked up by Paris in your *** Cuba on the counter attack and a nice tackle in there from I believe Reggie Cannon and another nice tackle and Tim Marine will get it up.
Here is Morales and he has now taken down a dirty tackle.
Their stuff started My apologies.
And now they're getting into it.
Cuba really trying to pick fights here in garbage time.
Josh Sergeant took a lately tackle there and he's not too happy about it.
The referees now having to split them up to you, but not happy because there wasn't a call.
Ah, a couple seconds before that.
As down one Power. Adela.
It was a good original tackle.
And they're from Cristian Roldan.
It was the right decision both times for the no call before.
And then no doubt that that was a foul after on taken down Josh.
Sergeant, they're just a dirty tackle.
I would be surprised if the referee didn't give a yellow, but it doesn't look like he did.
We're getting some fluids in him.
Welcome, Ryan to the broadcast.
What is going on? Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday night.
It's the inaugural edition of the CONCACAF Nations League here on SportsCastr the United States taking on Cuba, The U.
S. Lead it for nothing.
By the way, this will be a huge room for the U.
Because they have no wins.
Five draw, six losses in their last 11 matches on foreign soil.
How about that stat for you? And Hernandez is still down for Cuba.
Hell, now take a walk off to the sideline as the athletic trainers attended to him.
What's up, Ryan? I appreciate you tuning, and so the U.
S are up for nothing.
And with this win, they will finish first in Group A of League A and advanced onto the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals.
This is the last game of the group stage, so the U.
S will punch their ticket and most likely face Honduras If Mexico ties or beats per meter tonight, which they easily should, then the U.
S will play Honduras and Mexico will play Costa Rica in June in the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals and at a site me to be determined So that will still be announced in the future from CONCACAF.
And then after that, then, after the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals and final World Cup qualifying, we'll be getting underway in August and September of next year.
I know it's looking far ahead down the road, but it is the case.
Looking to get into the 2022 World Cup and you know the nation's leak.
The CONCACAF nations like put in place, ah, to to eliminate friendlies.
They're doing just exactly what Europe did with the UFO nations like, which turned out to be a success.
I think the Conch Cab Nations League makes things more interesting.
Um, and you know the games do matter.
That's the reason they're they have them in place because these do have implications on World Cup and Gold Cup qualifying.
74th minute The United States Avenue in midfield with it is Tim Marine remodel wide to Aaron Law.
Wong plays it up with Reggie Cannon Cannon back too long us just knocking, knocking the ball around here in midfield.
Now it's cannon.
This will be passed back from Morale is too long, long over.
Serene here is long.
Cuba will not try to clear this one out.
They do so when it goes right back to the United States with it.
Aaron along Cuba.
Now we'll kick this one up towards midfield.
Aaron Long has it long.
I wide with Tim Marine.
It's trying to get to rolled on that will be off of Cuba.
The United States throwing coming up.
It's game taking place in the Cayman Islands.
This ball played up and a little bit too much on that touch from rolled on and it will go over the goal line and a goal kick coming up.
What? Cuba in the box? No foul called there will be cleared out by the United States.
It's all the way back with Sanchez 76 minutes.
Cuba possessing from the back.
This one played up to more than a home.
Now it's back with a Speedo.
Now it's worldwide for Reza.
Rezo sends it in.
The header is out, but only as far as Hernandez.
Hernandez plays it out wide.
Here's Mora Hone back for a brave brave You played it towards the middle and this will be off of the US Cuba throwing coming up.
It will be Mora home to take the throne.
Down the line, it goes.
It will be cleared out by Irene Josh.
Sergeant back with, I believe that was Reggie Cannon.
Now it's up with Josh, Sergeant sergeant looking for his hat trick here.
He'll play it down the line for Cristian Roldan.
Roldan sends it in and that will be a corner kick coming up for the U.
The U S. When a corner kick out of it.
So it looks like Let's see who's taken this corner kick.
It's a game that's been tough to commentate in the second half, because there's been pretty much nothing going on here.
It will be a right footed in swinger.
The header is straight down from Aaron along this blow in the box now, too.
Sergeant Sergeant looking for Patrick.
But that goes way off target, Sergeant.
Not quite timing that one, right? And you got a clear look as well.
He will definitely want that opportunity back.
Just mistimed it a bit.
We're approaching the end of this game.
Slowly but surely United States are gonna move on to the nation's league semifinals.
Oh, that was almost a gold from Cuba.
Wow, It wasn't about effort there from Hernandez Goes on, I think had that near post covered.
But you never know that one.
Just going wide left of the goal.
Very good opportunity there for Cuba.
Not too far off.
80th minute here.
10 minutes to go in this 14 to nothing.
The United States lied it over Cuba.
It's tries to get this one.
The Boyd Boyd battling near the end line, and Cuba win that battle.
They get the goal kick.
Nice job, thereby Ramos shielding that one.
And now a man down for the U.
Let's see who that is.
I can't tell who it is down right now for the United States.
Here in the stretchers.
Now it's Paul Ariel who's down for the U.
S. This is a concerning sign here.
It doesn't seem to be too bad.
Sorry, l A takes a jog over to the sideline.
Not really sure why they, uh, asked for a stretcher.
To be broad out.
Seemed like a normal just, you know, not too bad injury.
But who knows? Cuba? Take the gold kick.
It makes its way from or a home.
Now it's played out wide with the brave.
A brave sense, this one all the way to the other side of the box.
It's now at the edge of the box.
Cuba still with it, Sean on goal.
And that is blocked.
Couple of headers.
Us trying to clear this Tyler Boyd with a tackle on there, and that's a foul so Cuba will get a free kick.
Hernandez, the one who went down here so a substitution made by Cuba.
Now it is a brave coming off and we will check to see who it is that's coming on for Cuba.
Second substitution of the game for Cuba and it is rev a common on so reveille is on now a free kick and the other say views on Wow, That might have been the best chance of the game for Cuba right there, the header from Rezo.
But Suzanne has been ready all night and he was able to read that one 83rd minute, still four to nothing.
The United States would love a shutout.
Be nice to get another goal on the board as well.
Let's see if they can do just that rolled on, plays this one wide and it will be kept in bounds on the far side, near the corner flag.
And this goes off of Cuba for United States.
Throwing and down for Cuba now is Rezo, the REZO, down in some clear discomfort, and Cuba will probably be happy that this competition will be done for them.
After tonight, they lost all four games in the group stage and it will be love.
It's to take the throw.
He'll throw it in short, Goes back to love. It's love.
It's get a nice crossing here.
He does just that.
The ball floating in the air, the header save Sanchez Sanchez denying the opportunity there for I believe Love, It's And now it looks like.
Or maybe it was.
Morale is with the opportunity there.
Yeah, was Morales and he's now down, shaken up a little bit.
Maybe a collision there with the head.
Yeah, I think, uh, he headed into the head of a Cuban defender there.
That's not too good.
It looks like he's gonna be all right.
Five minutes to go in this one plus stoppage time.
I don't think they're gonna add that much.
Another look at the lead a group a ****, a calf nation's legal live standings.
They're gonna go through there even on points with Canada and nine.
But the United States by far have superior goal differential plus 12 compared to Canada's plus six and Cuba, currently on no points with a minus 18 goal differential.
It's been a rough tournament for them.
And now a handball called in the U. S.
Right around midfield.
That one called in morale is Cuba.
We're looking to take the quick free kick originally.
Now they'll take a little bit of time.
This ball played in chested down by Parad Ayla Now this ball in the air, us will send it up and this will go all the way back for Sanchez.
Sanchez will keep it on his feet and now pick it up right at the edge of his box.
Rolls it down, boots this one well past midfield.
The header there will go out of playing a Cuba throwing.
Hey, so here's the throne, right around midfield.
Down the line, it goes headed out by love.
It's now we're throwing to be taken by Rezo.
Rezo plays it back.
Now it's Sanchez with it.
Sanchez plays it all the way to the other side.
Here is paradise.
Ola Cardella trying to switch fields.

The United States, 88 minute, United States.
We're gonna move on to the next round of the CONCACAF Nations League.

The header in the air taken down by Tyler Boy Boyd back to Tim Green remover to goes on.

And here is Morales Morales with a nice touch there in the middle to Ream where now approach the final whistle.
Very shortly, about 30 seconds left.
In normal time, we'll see how much they add.
Our here is Cuba.
This one played up in the air for a while, a nice touch and this one played out by love.
It's and there will be a minimum of Does that say three minutes a stoppage time? Yes, it does.
Three more minutes, folks.
I don't know why they're adding time even just ended now the U.
S. One we get it.
S are moving on.
But, you know, for the U.
The job wasn't done coming into this game and they got the job done.
So, you know, it's a good it's a good win.
It's you know, you would all relight.
You definitely would have liked for the US to, uh um you know, just really turn it on here in the second half.
It is what it is.
They get the win.
Not an awful lot.
You can take out of the scheme, but they did their business.
They did their job, You know, coming into this game, they didn't have a spot booked, uh, into the knockout stage.
So it's not like they were playing for nothing in this game there.
They were playing for something.
They could have been eliminated tonight, so they took care of business.
We know none of us expected them.
That would be an absolute disaster.
And don't even remind me about what happened in the World Cup qualification against Trinidad and Tobago.
But it would be similar to that.
Obviously, this is Nations League.
So but, you know, it would still be a big deal because this team is trying to rebuild getting ready for those World Cup qualifiers that are now in less than a year.
This one out to Reggie Cannon Cannon will play it back with their in long, Long in the middle.
Now let's play that wide by.
You'll love it's down the line.
Boyd sends it in that is deflected, and that will be a corner kick coming up for the United States with a minute left to go in this game, the American Outlaws having a good time down and the Cayman Islands.
It's a beautiful night down there, 80 degrees.
I would love that right now.
So left footed in swinger here, this wall scenting.
And it's beyond everyone but a nice tackle in there from Morales Morales with it.
S could get a go at the very end here.
Morales sends it in.
This will be cleared out by Cuba.
A burst of speed on the far side off of the U. S.
Quick throwing taken.
It's taken over by Aaron Long in midfield, and that should just about do it for this game.
The three whistles blows signaling for the end of this game, the United States defeat Cuba for nothing.
They're moving on to the Kaga CAF Nations League semi finals.
So the U. S do their job.
The final standings for League A Group A in the CONCACAF nations like the United States taught the group with nine points, winning on goal differential over Canada.
