Two years in the making, the United Soccer League has proposed a rule that will change the way that world football deals with head injuries midgame.
RBNYII vs Nashville FC Match Day Thread
A corner kick in the 9th minute was flicked at the near-post by Matt LaGrassa towards Brandon Allen, who was lurking on the blindside. He calmly swept home the ball, but was ruled offside, cancelling out the strike.
How Penn FC will look: Penn FCs last game was also against the Riverhounds, but they had to settle for a nil-nil draw against their in-state foes. Coincidentally, 0-0 was also the scoreline when these two teams met back in April. But Penn FC came into that match on short rest and Nashville had had some time off, so the situation is reversed this time.
The Riverhounds have won the two previous meetings this season by a combined score of 6-1. The next take to the pitch on Saturday, August 4 when they travel to Pennsylvania for a match against Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC a team that has caused them all kinds of trouble this year and seasons past.
For Nashville theyll need Alan Winn to return to the lineup to pull this off. So while he should be available, they might not want to play him for the full ninety minutes. But hes been hurt off and on so far in 2018. Penn FC will need players like Freddy Opoku and Richard Menjivar to use speed and passing to create some goal scoring opportunities. The other option is to try and slip around the defenders using speed as a weapon.

Between the posts, Caleb Patterson-Sewell, back from an elbow injury, stepped in for Borja Angoitia, while Jordan Faria, who inked a professional deal last week, took up the left-sided attacking midfield role in place of Aidan Daniels. Head coach Michael Rabasca made just two changes to the XI that lost 3-1 to North Carolina FC last weekend.
Los Angeles FC play its home matches at the Banc of California Stadium in the Exposition Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The 2019 Los Angeles FC season is the club's second season, and second season in Major League Soccer, the top-tier of the American soccer pyramid. Outside of MLS play, the team will participate in the 2019 U.S. Open Cup tournament.
Pickens has managed six clean sheets this season and Peiser has gotten three of his own while splitting time with Sean Lewis. The key players for both of these teams Saturday night will be their goalkeepers, Matt Pickens for Nashville and Romu Peiser for Penn FC. Each keeper will need to rely on their defenders to effectively sweep away any loose balls in the box to prevent any tap-in goals like Pittsburgh suffered Saturday night. Just because theyve both been doing it all season. If the defenses can manage that, then I expect the veteran keepers to each make a spectacular save or two to deny a strong shot from distance.
A Machine May Not Take Your Job, but One Could Become Your Boss
Two minutes later, Srbley would chase down a hopeful ball played down the left-side of the Nashville box, prompting their keeper, CJ Cochran to rush off his line. Srbely won the foot race, lifting a touch over the sliding keeper before being brought down for a TFC II penalty kick their third of the season.
