    The first one's actually true.
    The second is just fodder for people like you.

    Hiring a higher profile coach could actually raise the stature of the job all it takes is one coach to actually take a chance and go sure I'll do it. Klopp would have been wonderful but he was a pipe dream because he's stepping away from managing... it's why he left Liverpool. But it doesn't mean you stop going after people who maybe considered reaching for the stars hires

    Echoing a Reddit comment, it’s good for US Soccer to publicly ask candidates like Klopp because

    a) it never hurts to ask

    b) when the offers are quickly rejected like this it helps to show the delusional portion of the fanbase (and media, looking at you ESPN) where the stature of the job actually lies.

    Pep Guardiola.
    Carlo Ancelotti.

    Either of them will be eager to work with a powerhouse like the USMNT!
    The powers that be at US Soccer have no ambition if they don’t hire Pep!

    Time to see which unrealistic candidate the insanos on Twitter and r/ussoccer will settle on next. Zidane would be my bet. And then they’ll be out with the torches and pitchforks again when Cherundolo is inevitably hired.

    Apparently some inebriated Colombia fans started going after family members of Uruguay players, including elderly parents and at least two newborn babies. Will be interesting to see what the fallout is. One Uruguay player came just short of calling for Colombian fans to be cut off from alcohol - no way in hell that happens.

    Colombia beats Uruguay playing a man down the entire second half. Final was 1-0 but the last ten minutes it could have easily been 4-0. Colombia missed three wide open shots with Uruguay having to play aggressive.

    Must be nice to have money to throw away.

    Argentina took a shot at music artist Drake after the Canadian lost $300,000 on a bet his country would beat the defending champions in Tuesday's Copa America semifinal, using rap rival Kendrick Lamar's song to send him a message.
    The World Cup winners responded to Drake's post with a photo accompanied by the caption: "Not like us," the title of a 'diss' track released by Lamar in May which criticised the Canadian artist and which has been streamed nearly half a billion times on Spotify.
