Oguchi Onyewu came off the bench in injury time in Malaga’s 1-0 victory over AC Milan in Champions League action. Here is the lone goal.
Was it for an injury or to placate him? If it wasn’t for an injury it seems like a risky move by the coach in a 1-0 game for the Champions League. (It looks like he came on for a striker though)
He came off the bench and into the game during injury time (likely a time wasting substitution).
Respect move, so he could play against his former team.
Gooch is still one of the USMNT best option at CB if he’s healthy. Every time he plays for the USMNT, fans are so quick to dismiss him. All CBs look bad or get burnt at times, we just choose to remember certain incidents.
I hope he can stay healthy and get in form. Gooch always plays for a Champions League/Europa League teams for a reason. I do not buy he cant pass or is to slow, great teams continue to sign him for a reason. He just needs to stay healthy, which is saying a-lot.
