Welcome to the USMNT Only podcast, where we cover everything related to the U.S. Men's National Soccer team. In this podcast, we focus on 1-on-1 interviews with everyone ranging from players to journalists and everyone in between. If you have any interest in U.S. Soccer & Major League Soccer, then this is the podcast for you. Let's grow the game.
It's a new era for the U.S. Men's National Team, and a new era for the USMNT Only podcast. Today, I'm joined by my new co-host, Dillon of @DontTreadSoccer, to discuss Gregg Berhalter's first game in charge of the USMNT: a 3-0 win over Panama.
We review the game, Berhalter's tactics, and take a look towards our next friendly's against Costa Rica & Chile, and what a full-strength USA XI might look like.
Tom Byer, one of the most highly-regarded youth soccer coaches in the world, joined me to talk about his philosophy that 'Football Starts At Home.' Tom, born in New York, has been at the heart of Japan's rise in both the men and women's game and is a genius when it comes to grassroots soccer and technical development. There's a lot of good stuff in this interview - hope you enjoy!
18-year-old Chris Richards, FC Dallas Homegrown, joined me to talk about his recent loan move to join Bayern Munich's U19's. We talk about his experiences so far with the German giants, his strengths/weaknesses as a player, thoughts on the failed qualifying campaign, and exciting U.S. prospects to watch out far. Enjoy!
