    Thanks for answering my question in the last podcast (I like the new format). I guess US Soccer listened too because they had a couple of your picks in camp and at the friendlies.

    I got to see the USWNT for the first time in person at the Nashville game. I was really impressed by Christen Press’ ability to link with the midfield. The passing sequences between Press, Leroux, and O’Reilly were fun to watch and, I hope, indications of a new style of play for the US.
