And now Arriola is injured and replaced by Weah so #USMNT are even younger and have even fewer caps (161)!

#USMNT are nearly 9 years a man younger than their #CostaRica counterparts for tonight’s #WCQ in Columbus - USA 188 caps combined…the visitors 737. Does youthful exuberance triumph over gnarled experience? @TaylorTwellman is on the call with me 📺 ESPN2 & @ESPNPlus 6.30ET

I’ve commentated on early round FA Cup ties where the entire venue is smaller than the #allegiantstadium broadcast booth. Having a bar outside the door is also a plus! 😉 We’re on air with the ⁦@LeaguesCup⁩ Final at 10ET/7PT @espn 2 #sounders #leon #mls #ligamx

Ally McCoist such a natural at co-comms. Emotionally engaged, voice full of character, humour and strong analysis. Captures the occasion. He almost sounds so involved he’s about to come on. And not just because it’s #SCOMDA. McCoist just loves football, excellent on all teams🎙🙌
