USMNT - The Berhalter Era

this is my head canon - he told Gio what levels he needed to hit in his recovery
Gio thought he did, greggg wasn't convinced
greggg thought it best to limit minutes*, gio thought he went back on his word and became very salty about it

(why greggg would does this as a proclamation before the WC and not on a match by match basis is the deeper question)

The recovery part just doesnt sit well with me because Gios last match with BvD was 11/12- he played full first 45.

prior to that match he was around 60 up to 82 min - so i cant think that the reasoning was due to fitness/slow roll return from injury.

to paraphrase Paul Allen....This aint Detriot!!! This is the World Cup!!!
