USMNT: Raise a Cup!

5/31/22: June friendlies & Nations League 🇺🇸⚽️


I’ll be at the USMNT Nations League game in Austin on June 10th, but there are two (2!!!) friendlies to enjoy between now and then, starting with tomorrow’s game against Morocco.

As a little footie amuse-bouche, I built a puzzle that celebrates some of the club accomplishments the lads enjoyed during the ’21-’22 seasons. Test your knowledge and get HYPE for a great summer of soccer!

If you’re into US Soccer-related crosswords, you can find previous puzzles I wrote for both the men’s and women’s sides below. Happy solving!

Words can’t express how excited I am to finally–FINALLY–see team U.S.A. back on the pitch on Thursday against Wales.

Today’s puzzle isn’t like my New York Times crosswords. This one is for a niche audience: U.S.M.N.T. super fans. Long have we waited; long have we suffered. But soft! What light through yonder international window breaks?

Most of the #rosswordpuzzles you’ll find on this site (or in the newspapers I make puzzles for) try to appeal to a wide audience.

Not this one. This one’s for my U.S.A. soccer fanfolks. We’re you go we’ll follow… 🎶
