    Great pictures as always!

    Does anyone have a gif of Klinsmann celebrating those goals? Mad-man genius in action!

    BOKEHLICIOUS! What focal length(s) are you using to get that separation on the pitch?

      I typically shoot at 1/1000 sec, f/4. I change settings depending upon conditions, though.

    3 things
    1: Love the photos!

    2: Can we expect an all inclusive USMNT summation of qualifying to this point from TSG? I miss the days of daily tactical analysis.

    3: How does the community at large ask for more call ups by youngsters and also contradict itself and say that we need to stop tinkering and figure out our set lineup? With players being hurt then healthy plus call ups isn’t 20 line ups in 20 games plus achieving success something noteworthy? We should benefit, not regress, from this right?

    Some fantastic photographs, Matt.
    I doff my (lens) cap, Sir.

    Great to see Klinsmann in a rolled up dress shirt again, like he used to wear when coaching Germany. Klisnsmann had been wearing U.S. polo shirts all this time, just like his predecessors did, though not quite as bad as the sweatpants that Bradley used to wear.

    mm, i really like the picture with deuce, ej, and the guat. defender. it is cool that all three faces are in focus and each face tells a story. the fact that deuce and ej look morphed into one mythological soccer god makes this the best picture. for me!! hercs pic would take second, his look is pure determination. that picture should be posted on jozy altidores twitter.

    First time I noticed Deuce and EJ wearing the same cleats. Love Eddie’s flag waving, cues “waving flag” by Knaan

    Love the one where the Honduran player is teaching Zusi the mysteries of the tango.
