You have to be able to adapt to injuries, etc.

That is job number one for a coach. If Yedlin has lost a step and you play him against the other teams best player, you better make sure that he knows not to get caught upfield. If Brooks is slow and can't get to the other team's fast attackers, the coach needs to adjust and play someone else or provide cover in a back 3. If the other team is bunkering, have your team adjust by working for turnovers and getting the ball up the field as quickly as possible. Or you could Berhalter and have the defenders play aimless long balls after giving up on short passes.

  Very disappointing return to live coverage for me. -- PhillyHoo 09/06/2021 12:37PM
  Dike isn't on the roster, so he can't play in this qualification -- Sterling Malory Archer 09/06/2021 12:47PM
