I see nothing wrong with running up the score at the World Cup. Take that complaint to a 9th grade girls basketball game.

If the problem is that it suggests there shouldn't be 24 teams at this event, well maybe that's a point.

The US should be prioritizing the Olympics over everything else right now to the extent it is possible to do so given the rules on releasing players.

Trapp isn’t really holding anyone back as far as I can see. Durkin is a little too young and he hasn’t exactly been great in Poland (hope that changes today).

You're not wrong, but the odds of Jozy picking up an injury this weekend are about 150% so he'll get into the squad anyway, and Soto is getting a great opportunity in Poland and doing well with it.
