MacMath in for the young guys, I take it? Didn’t look too sharp on these
The u23′s seem pretty happy with the way the run of play went, despite the score – is that a good or bad thing?

Hahaha! Good or bad thing indeed. U-23′s looked like they did really well. And they played w/o Boyd and Gyau. Plus, the Olympic team will LIKELY (though who knows how this will break down with WC qualifying), have Shea on the field as well. Who was arguably the best player on the pitch.

Outside of Boyd and the established senior team guys that might play for u-23, who has that kind of credibility?

Back to the good/bad thing dilemma, the second scrimmage was 1-1, and Benny admits to the younger guys dominating possession both times out:
