The United States men’s national team opened their World Cup Qualifying campaign with a scoreless draw away to El Salvador. It was a match with very few chances created by either side and probably ended with a just result. The typical mindset in qualifying is win your home matches and get what you can on the road. A draw in your first away match isn’t what you dream about but it’s not going to harm your chances either.
