ASN Morning Read: Out There on the Training Field

The United States men's national team gets ready for the most important match of the World Cup qualifying cycle. Yeah, we said that. Just go with it. We're on a roll; Christian Pulisic news, of course.

  • "United States midfielder Christian Pulisic admitted 'everything happened a little bit too fast' for him last season during his meteoric rise for club and country."

  • Who should start against Costa Rica?

  • This says more about the American sports conciousness than anything: "Christian Pulisic feels like an under-publicized story right now on the American sports scene." 

  • Tim Ream to ASN: "We Look at the Glass as Half Full"

  • "They have worked hard and smart, and now sit on the verge of qualification. But the truth is that this match against Costa Rica was always going to be the most important game of the Hexagonal round. When the Americans looked at their fixtures against its five CONCACAF foes vying for one of the region's three places -- with the fourth-place team earning a playoff with a team from the Asian confederation -- they had to know they'd need these three points to reach Russia. Almost 10 months after the first game of the final round of World Cup qualifying, much has changed, but that fact remains the same."
