The odds have perhaps never before been stacked so significantly against the United States. Their opponent, Argentina, is not only the No. 1 ranked team in the world, but have perhaps the sport’s best-ever player in pretty close to top form. Yes, the game is being played on U.S. soil, but La Albiceleste will not be lacking in support.
Making matters worse, the USMNT is missing not one, not two, but three of their preferred starters.
Don’t focus on that, though, at least not right now. As we get ready for a history-making match, allow some of this to get you pumped up.
