USMNT spotlight falls on the program’s new generation of stars in Trinidad win

There’s no indication of the number of shots taken. At the end of the first half of tonight’s World Cup qualifier between the USA and Trinidad Tobago, it showed only zeros, and the atmosphere around Denver was tempered with some concern.

This was a game the hosts had to win, thanks to a poor start to the Hexagonal and a trip to the Estadio Azteca right around the corner. And despite all those unlisted advantages, they just couldn’t break through.
