I know we haven't typically done official match threads for USMNT games. It's not that we don't support our national side, or that we don't want to make match threads for them, it's just that with the litany of other more local soccer events going in and around Portland we often lose track of how our national team is doing. At least on a site level. Luckily, this break has given us the opportunity to re-evaluate our priorities and, from now on, for each World Cup Qualifying match we'll have an official match thread. As we get deeper into Gold Cup/World Cup territory we'll try and increase our coverage as well.
So, without further ado, here is your USMNT vs. Antigua & Barbuda match thread and all the relevant info below:
