Ep. 27: USMNT hoists Gold Cup
The Big Lead’s Ryan Phillips guests on this late-night edition of the Soc Takes Pod in which the panel dissects the U.S. men’s national team’s 2-1 victory over Jamaica to win the 2017 Gold Cup. Jordan Morris’ heroic finish in the 90th minute broke the deadlock.
The USMNT saw over 80 percent of the ball in the second half and owned 73 percent of the possession overall. Jozy Altidore contributed another all-around stellar performance, scoring the game’s opening goal on a bending free kick from distance.
