USMNT searching for a breakthrough

Ahead of the clash between the USMNT and El Salvador on Monday 27 March (see how to watch here), Yunus Musah sent a message to his opponents through his Instagram account, saying “that time again...” and a picture of a red card.

Before the Instagram post, the Valencia player had said in a press conference that the game was not going to be easy for his team: “The game is going to be a really intense battle,” Musah said. “We have to, as usual, match their intensity and physicality. Our attitude has to be spot-on.” He said as much with his social media post.

Musah has played in the two games between both teams, the first in Ohio, which finished with a USMNT win, and the second a draw in the Nations League.

In terms of the results leading up to the game, the USMNT put seven goals past Grenada (winning 7-1) and El Salvador drew 1-1 against Jamaica.

What did Anthony Hudson say ahead of the game?

As for the USMNT coach, Anthony Hudson, he hinted at potential changes for his side in their upcoming game: “It’s a luxury we have in windows like this. We have a very strong group, and we have a good depth, which allows us to be able to prepare for two games in a short timeframe and to be able to rotate — not wholesale changes — but to rotate in a way that we can at least get to the second game and have freshness without losing quality.”
