    My daughter just did it on her own, more of a challenge to herself. Watching a player doing left footed drills with the right is pretty funny.

    Going left is good in soccer, and surfing. Just not good for governments.

    Come on Bernie that is beyond left. That is so far left that it is right wing.

    I'm starting to think that Crystal Dunn is going to have to play wide back at some point. O'Hara and Short leave a lot to be desired. Klingenberg is losing a step. We have quite a few options in the attack but we are extremely low on world class wing backs.

    I agree. Not a big fan of O'Hara, and Short just seems "serviceable", with no wow factor. I think Dunn as a Wingback is a great idea. She can't seem to learn how to stay onside.

    I watches Sundays game last night and was rather disappointed, especially with the passing, passing to the wrong side and passing to someone who was closely covered. Touches weren't the best either.

    Short really hasn't done anything real great at all. I may be mistaken, but I haven't really seen her push up because she is at that RB spot and should be, at times, joining the attack. I feel like I've seen her win the ball by getting out of bounds but not really make good plays with it if it stays in. I completely agree with you, she has no wow factor

    They sure don't play out of the back.

    Short has been playing left back and has been extremely underwhelming at it. Norway and Sweden exposed her weaknesses.

    I was just wondering if she was a forward converted to defense.

    Dude what a riot! With the talent she has and no clue how to play attractive attacking soccer she just needs to go. Just keep recycling the same crap - definition of insanity.

    For Florida St. she played centerback and outside back. For her current club she plays leftback and centerback.

    She is succeeding in assisting the rest of the world in catching up with us.

    Which would help her stay on side for once. Man, it seems every game she forgets where she is supposed to be. Is she not paying attention?

    I think some of the "rest" have already caught up.

    To shine a light on US Soccer WNT coaches selection. I happened to play a youtube video of Beast Mode Soccer. This video is 5 yrs old, in the video shows 2 Sr WNT team players; Christine Press and Whitney Engen. Whitney is no longer on the Sr team as of 1-2 years ago. What I find amazing, is how average Christine Press skills are and horrible Whitney Engen's is. The best 2 players in the video are Ali Reilly who plays for New Zealand after never getting a call up to the US WNT. DiMartino has a good touch as well, but never called into the Sr team too. I am not sure if Di Martino still plays for the NWSL though. Shows what type of players the YNT head coaches prefer.

    Skip to minute 1:45 and you will see Christine Press on the right side. I am not impressed with her on the ball skills.



    Skip to minute 1:50 to pass the intro and promotional talk. Whitney Engen can't even juggle a soccer ball!
