Tim Howard isn't mincing his words
The unthinkable has happened
The U.S. loses and results elsewhere have not helped them
FT: #usmnt loses 2-1. Utter humiliation with more to come in all likelihood.— Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) October 11, 2017
Half-time analysis from Couva
HT: #usmnt in big trouble, losing 2-0 but getting the help it needs elsewhere. Still, an embarrassing performance so far from the U.S.— Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) October 11, 2017
Those fans who did make the trip are enjoying this!
The hosts are winning 2-0 in front of some empty seats
At least there will be some friendly faces!
Will the crowd be a concern...?
25 minutes to kickoff, and this is the crowd so far. Won't be a hostile atmosphere by any stretch. pic.twitter.com/upptL6jjGW— Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) October 10, 2017
Something to worry the U.S. tonight? (Hyland does start for T&T)
Haven't seen T&T lineup yet, but Khaleem Hyland made life difficult for #usmnt exploiting spaces in center of midfield in June qualifier.— Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) October 10, 2017
